Rebel Wizard - Voluptuous Worship Of Rapture And Response

Label : Prosthetic Records | Archive under heavy / power metal

Release type: Full-length CD

Marcel H. : Rebel Wizard, from Down Under, never heard of that band. A one man band, who according to the man himself, play a mixture of heavy metal and black metal. Looking at song titles such as ‘Drunk On The Wizdom Of Unicorn Semen’, ‘The Poor And Ridiculous Alchemy Of Christ And Lucifer And Us All’ and ‘Mother Nature, Oh My Sweet Mistress, Showed Me The Other Worlds And It Was Just Fallacy’ set off all sorts of alarm bells. Sorry, but I just can’t take this seriously. Hopefully the songs themselves will make up for that. Musically it is basically old-fashioned heavy metal met some black metal thrown in here and there. Vocally it is totally black metal. However, the screams by mister Nekrasov pull down the quality of what’s on offer immensely. Whenever the gentleman closes his mouth it is all quite okay. Not earth shattering brilliant but just standard heavy you can hum along to, in no time. However, musically we have heard it all a gazillion times before. But goddamnit those vocals. Man, just shut your mouth. Due to this horrible excuse for singing it now scores a negative mark.
