Exclusive Track Premiere: Rebel Wizard, “The Prophecy Came And It Was Soaked With The Common Fools Forboding”
On my list of bands whose activities and releases I want to know about right fucking now, Australian one-man act Rebel Wizard ranks pretty fucking high. Their mixture of acrobatic NWOBHM guitars, scathing black metal vocals and production, and bleak philosophical subject matter hits me right in the sweet spot, where my love of metal that’s unrelenting meets my need for metal that charges out with galloping riffs and kickass solos. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: this band fucking kills.
Rebel Wizard’s last full-length album, Triumph of Gloom, got them signed to Prosthetic, and their EP Great Addictions to Blindingly Dark, Worldly Life made . Now, the band is about to release Voluptuous Worship of Rapture and Response, featuring ten tracks of wily, acidic music that lives up to the genre title of “heavy negative wizard metal”.
MetalSucks is proud to premiere “The Prophecy Came and It Was Soaked With The Common Fools Forboding”. Check out the track below, and keep up with Rebel Wizard via their Bandcamp. Voluptuous Worship… drops August 18th via Prosthetic as CD, digital download, and limited-edition Unicorn Semen-colored vinyl, in case that gets you hard. Pre-order here.
