Tarot: The Warrior's Spell

Album Review

Seventies revivalists get stuck in their recent past

Aside from their intentionally amateurish sleeve art and logo – par for the course for such scrupulously time-warped retro-rock – there are aspects of Australian crew Tarot that might raise suspicious eyebrows.

They share their name with a well-respected Finnish band of some renown in the trad metal underground since the mid-80s, and this album collects a batch of EPs originally released on cassette in 2014, suggesting Tarot needlessly stretched an LP across multiple short-form releases.
