release “The Spark”
from upcoming album “Tales of Magic”
out on January 21st 2022
Planeswalker sees Jason Ashcraft and Sozos Michael returning to work together since the Helion Prime album “Terror of the Cybernetic Space Monster”. Bringing his love for the popular Wizards of the Coast card game “Magic: The Gathering” and love for power metal together Jason approached Sozos about starting a new band together and Planeswalker was born.
Out of this reunion comes their debut album, Tales of Magic, which touches on the events, the lore, and the literal magic of Magic: The Gathering.
Album release date is January 21st, 2022.
Jason says: I always knew when Sozos had to step down from Helion Prime that I’d want to work with him again someday. I absolutely love his voice and songwriting. When I got the idea to start a band based on my favorite game there was no contest who I wanted to handle the vocals.
Sozos Says: I was thrilled to be working with Jason again, as I always thought our music making strengths complemented each other’s very well indeed. The 6 original songs in this album were my first attempt at fully flexing my songwriting muscles in this genre, guided lyrically by Jason’s knowledge of MTG’s rich lore. For me, though, the most exciting part is that the world of MTG has much more to offer, and we are just getting started!
