SpellBlast started their music career in 1999 presenting themselves as a power metal band; their first approach to the audience was in 2004 with the release of a demo titled "Ray Of Time".
Afterwards the band performed at several gigs: to be noted among the others some shows along with Stormlord and the attendance to the BloodStock06 English Festival, where they played on the main stage alongside bands like Primal Fear, My Dying Bride, Axel Rudi Pell and Brainstorm.

Just before the end of 2006 SpellBlast released their first full length album, HORNS OF SILENCE, recorded, mixed and mastered at New Sin Studio (where also bands like Labyrinth, Domine, White Skull, Elvenking worked on the making of their albums). The Band still keeps its power sounds, but some folk influences start to pervade SpellBlast music; In that occasion the Band could also rely on a prestigious Special Guest at the voice: Damnagoras from Elvenking.

Immediately after, a contract was signed with Fuel Records and "Horns Of Silence" distribution started in Italy by Self and in the rest of the world by Frontiers Records; to be noted a special release in Taiwan through J Stone (Division of Magnum Music). The launch of SpellBlast on the global metal scene was definitely done.

Meanwhile a strengthening of the rhythmical section of the upcoming tracks combined to a much stronger approach to folk components, gave a very personal sound to SpellBlast music, resulting from the mix of both folk and power elements, now winking at a heavy-epic metal.

The second full length, BATTLECRY, was released on April 23rd, 2010: it confirmed this more powerful and aggressive style in the 12 tracks recorded – once more at the excellent New Sin Studio - this time with the extraordinary presence of Fabio Lione at the voice (Rhapsody of Fire/ Vision Divine) and the support of Folkstone’s bagpipes.
The CD, completely self produced by the band, is distributed in Italy by Self and by Twilight in the rest of the world.

Time passes by and during the writing of the new album other changes occur among the musicians, leading the Band to the current line up. With a now renovated section of drums and rhythm guitar, the fivesome from Lombardy records the video of Ragnarok (Dream Of The End) and gets ready to attend the mini tour that will take place at the end of May in Finland, before starting the recording of their third full length.

Gli SpellBlast nascono nel 1999 come gruppo power metal e si propongono per la prima volta al pubblico nel 2004 con l'uscita del demo intitolato "Ray Of Time".
La band si esibisce in diversi concerti di rilievo, alcuni show al fianco dei capitolini Stormlord e il festival inglese BloodStock06 che vede il sestetto bergamasco impegnato sul main stage al fianco di gruppi come Primal Fear, My Dying Bride, Axel Rudi Pell e Brainstorm.

Verso la fine dello stesso anno gli SpellBlast danno alle stampe il loro primo full lenght, HORNS OF SILENCE, registrato, mixato e masterizzato presso i NEW SIN STUDIO (dove han lavorato anche Labyrinth, Domine, White Skull, Elvenking). Il sound degli SpellBlast resta di stampo power ma nuove influenze folk iniziano ad insinuarsi nei brani e ad impreziosire il prodotto si aggiunge la presenza di Damnagoras (Elvenking, Leprauchan) come special guest.

La band firma un contratto con Fuel Records ed il cd "Horns Of Silence" viene distribuito in Italia da Self e in tutto il mondo da Frontiers Record. Da segnalare una release in Taiwan tramite la J Stone (divisione della Magnum Music). Ed è cosi che la band si propone al pubblico di stampo metal mondiale.

Nel contempo il potenziamento della sezione ritmica dei brani in lavorazione, unito ad un avvicinamento molto più marcato al folk, ha permesso alla band di ottenere un sound personale che sfocia in un misto tra power e folk, strizzando l'occhio a un heavy epico.

Ed è con questo stile che si presenta il nuovo album BATTLECRY, rilasciato il 23 Aprile 2010: 12 tracce potenti e aggressive, registrate sempre presso gli ottimi NEW SIN STUDIO con la presenza d'eccezione di Fabio Lione (Rhapsody of Fire/Vision Divine) e il supporto delle cornamuse dei Folkstone.
Il cd, autoprodotto dalla band in ogni sua parte, è distribuito in Italia da Self e nel mondo da Twilight.

Il tempo passa, ed è durante la stesura del nuovo album che altri due cambi di formazione portano la band a quella che è la line up attuale, rinnovate le sezioni di batteria e chitarra il quintetto lombardo registra il video della canzone Ragnarok (Dream Of The End) e si prepara al mini tour che li porterà in Finlandia a Maggio 2012 prima di iniziare con le registrazioni del terzo full lenght.
