A while ago, I wrote about one of my favorite bands operating as part of the traditional heavy metal revival, Spellcaster. Since then, sadly, the band has disbanded, leaving a denim-jacket wearing hole in my heart. Luckily for me, Gabriel Franco (who played bass for Spellcaster) has forged Idle Hands from out of the molten wreckage of his former band. Idle Hands are still very much inside the traditional heavy metal definition but channel a much darker version than Spellcaster; they tend to err on the side of ballad rather than the epic proclamations of power that were Spellcaster's stock and fare but, to be honest, that approach might even be better than the original.
