Rebel Wizard are a solo project from Australia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of black and heavy metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 album "Triumph Of Gloom".
Spoken word samples start off the album and after awhile the music goes into a heavier direction and the solos and leads are very melodic and old school sounding and the faster sections of the songs bring in a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
A great amount of traditional and thrash metal elements can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some of the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody and you can also hear a few seconds of clean singing on one of the tracks and all of the songs stick to a very heavy and aggressive musical direction.
Rebel Wizard creates another recording that takes black metal and traditional metal and mixes them together, the production sounds very powerful and heavy while the lyrics cover Shamanism, Occultism and Darkness 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 album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Where We Surrender Completely To the Miserable Shaman" "A Spell Of Sorrow To Relieve The Curse of Triumph" and "Sorcerery". 8 out of 10.
