Striker & Spellcaster Concert Review, San Antonio, TX, May 20, 2015

Striker, Spellcaster and Weresquatch rolled through San Antonio Friday night.  I had just seen Spellcaster in Chicago at Ragnarokkr and couldn’t really get into the 2 songs I saw after getting blown away by Old Wolf.

We arrived with about 2 songs left from Weresquatch but I didn’t hear anything from them that made me care.

Spellcaster’s main man, Cory, found me before the show.  Great dude.  Spellcaster went on shortly after and were just great.  Super solid, good stage presence and good players.  Unfortunately the sound in the Korova basement leaves a lot to be desired as does the lighting.  Overall it didn’t matter.  Spellcaster rocked the crowd of 40 or so and I look forward to seeing them again at Frost and Fire II in October.  The 3 songs from their new album, Night Hides the World, sounded great, especially the title track.

Striker headlined and I had only listened to some of their stuff a few days prior to the show.  Good solid stuff that translated well live.  My favorite part of seeing them was their great 3-part vocal harmonies.  Much of the crowd had left during their set and admittedly I spent a lot of time talking with my drummer outside.  I’d definitely like to catch them again.

Catch the tour if you can.
