Kickstarter Spotlight: “Nineteen” by SpellBlast, a Dark Tower album

One of my all-time favorite authors is Stephen King. I think it’s fair to say that I grew up reading his books.

At some point as a teenager, I was given the first Dark Tower book: “The Gunslinger”. While initially annoyed at the rather small book, it lead me deeper into the Stephen King universe of books.

The Dark Tower may be one of my favorite series of books as well; the setting, the characters and pervasive sense of everything being connected really resonated with me.

All that said, I was just browsing Kickstarter earlier, and stumbled upon this Kickstarter: “Nineteen” by SpellBlast. I had not heard of SpellBlast before, but decided to check them out on Youtube. The band’s sound is right up my alley, and the idea of metal music based on The Dark Tower was just too tempting to let go.

Give the band a listen, especially if you’re a fan of The Dark Tower.

All I can say apart from that is, I hope they reach their Kickstarter – and check out that gorgeous artwork by Roberta Cavalleri!
