Everybody loves to throw a fist in the air, but how much more satisfying is it if you have cause to lower it in the form of a humungous pulldown? 

Hailing from Bergen, Norway, hard rock power trio Magick Touch know the deep joy of a boogie-laced riff, the eternal resonance of phrases such as ‘All night long’ and the throbbing bass/drum hit combo that lets you know an AC/DC song is uncoiling – all guaranteed to give your arms an involuntary workout.

A third album, self-evidently titled Heads Have Got To Rock'N'Roll, is out in the middle of this year through Edged Circle Productions – the label run by former Immortal/Necrophagia bassist and Dead To This World head honcho Iscariah. 

Magick Touch are gearing up in the only way they know how; rocking out with the perfect mix of retro-infatuation, in-the-moment wonder and riffs that carry a torch like beacons lit up across Middle Earth.

All this comes in the form of a video for the track To The Limit, shot live to reveal the sheer joy, camaraderie and questionable taste in trousers to full effect – and we have an exclusive stream right here.

If you love Kadavar when they sounded happy, the swagger of A-Grade Nazareth, stubbornly and gloriously out of time haircuts, the total absence of shame, and a bunch of guys obliviously going for glory, rejoice in To The Limit below!
