SOCRadio series Magick Lab Academy will host Justin Day and Jenny Rose of the mystical pagan metal band Valkyrium Wednesday, July 12 at 10 p.m. EST/ 7 p.m. PST. Magick Lab is hosted by celebrity psychic Marie Bargas and writer Tony Sokol.
The band is lead by singer/guitarist/songwriter Kegan, a reiki practitioner and teacher. She formed Valkyrium in the San Fernando Valley in October 2013. Along with Jenny Rose on bass and vocals, Justin Day on drums, William Cota on guitars, vocals, Nikki and the band blend the sounds of “melodic, pagan, black, progressive, and death metal while diving into the realms of heavy metal/rock” according to their official website.
The West Hollywood band These up released their debut studio album “Reign Til Runa,” independently on Feb. 8.
Magick Lab explores and explains paranormal practices the easy way: straight talk without the gobbledygook of religion or faith. The show focuses on the non-secular mechanics of manifestation, preservation and disintegration with an emphasis on fast and easy non-denominational spellwork. There is no “dark” or “white” magic in Magick Lab, but a rainbow range of practical rituals. For an hour and a half each week, Magick Lab makes magick accessible to everyone.
The show also hosts occult experts discussing their specialties. On their premiere show, “How Karma effects the Law of Attraction and Magick,” they hosted voodoo expert Caiza D. Delashadeo of Mysts & Shadows. Astrology expert James David Wade, the Pisces Prince, joined them to discuss Venus Retrograde for the second.
Marie recently hosted gnostic expert Ana Divina, as well as the spiritually gifted musicians Karen Elaine and Gabe Hughes, House of Dreaming’s Madam X, Law of Attraction expert Habib Prince, reiki healer and intuitive lightworker Terry Robnett, occult specialists Lisa Derrick and Greg Bismarck, and author and voodoo filmmaker Lilith Sinclair.
