Black Wizard New Waste on LP
Vancouver, British Columbia-based heavy metal/stoner rock alchemists, Black Wizard unleash their latest full-length album entitled New Waste. Set for release via their new label home of Listenable Records, the record boasts nine tracks of red-eyed, road-raging, retro-riff worship.
Sonic Abuse proclaims that Black Wizard take, "the best bits from thirty years of heavy-ass metal, there are hints of Priest, Maiden, Sabbath, Purple and more, all wrapped up in Black Wizard's own, patchouli-scented haze...If you like your metal to veer on the traditional and yet to offer an eclectic edge to keep things interesting, then you've come to the right place."
Team Rock notes, "With a name like Black Wizard, you might expect a band scouring doom's dark underbelly and spinning your brain into a state of dreamy lethargy, but this four-piece from Vancouver offer an all-round chuggier endorsement of Satan's songbook...this album prefers to take you on a bong ‘n' roll journey of odes that would appeal to anyone cast under Red Fang's spell."
Adds Hellbound in an 8/10 score, "If you're looking for the sounds and traditional metal of Motörhead, Priest, Maiden, Thin Lizzy and Sabbath, one can look no further. Also, for a new label debut, Listenable couldn't have asked for a better album of catchy, crunchy and exciting songs."
