Australia's solo project Rebel Wizard have returned with a new recording that continues the black and heavy metal mixture of previous releases and this is a review of his 2017 ep "The Warning Of One" which will be released on August 18th by Prosthetic Records.
Clean playing and melodic guitar leads start off the ep before going into a heavier direction which also introduces high pitched black metal screams onto the recording and the music also incorporates a great amount of traditional metal elements and all of t he musical instruments have a very powerful sound to t hem.
While the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's the black metal vocals gives the songs a more modern feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the riffs also mixing in elements of thrash at times and the music always remains very heavy and spoken word parts are used on the closing track.
Rebel Wizard remains true to the black and thrash metal mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics have a concept to them with every track starting with the letter 'one' and cover negativity and nihilism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Rebel Wizard and if you are a fan of black and heavy metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "One I Know" and "One I Call". 8 out of 10.
