A Wild, state-of-the-art exercise in heavy metal musical theater.
Heart Healer is literally symphonic, blending the impressive writing, production and guitar mastery of Magnus with actual orchestral accompaniment.
Karlsson has covered all the bases for Heart Healer. The symphonic elements to metal band basics, he thought of it all. Karlsson’s work ethic is clearly on display with the final product. Each track holds its own, allowing all symphonic and metallic elements to shine.
