Rebel Wizard’s “Drunk on the Wizdom of Unicorn Semen” Is a Big Fuck You to Black Metal Tradition

Since I first heard them three years ago, Australia’s Rebel Wizard has been a band I’ve kept a close eye on. Their last full-length albumTriumph of Gloom, was a crushing hybrid of icy black metal and whirling NWOBHM, and the band has only continued perfecting their sound since with “The Prophecy Came and It Was Soaked In The Common Fools Forboding,” the track we recently premiered from their new album Voluptuous Worship of Rapture and Response, which drops today via Prosthetic.

The Wizard has also released a new video for a track titled “Drunk on the wizdom of unicorn semen,” and it’s just great. In it, sole member Nekrasov enters a dense of overgrown woodland, rife with eldritch atmosphere and magic…and then he walks around. And stands there. And holds up his arms. And then he plays the song’s final solo on his couch like a slob. It’s basically the biggest middle finger to the black metal tradition of posing like a clown in the woods by heading out into a forest and then saying, Nah. Who cares?
