Throwing in a shoutout for a local band I'm mates with.

The Wizar'd

They absolutely crush live. They played the third Hammer of Doom festival in Germany (Link). Killerrrrr.

Has The Wandering Midget been mentioned yet? poo poo name, but they've got some good riffs.

Vocals remind me of The Wizar'd

Hah, I'll pass that on to the Wizar'd guys, though they undoubtedly already know of it. Doesn't quite have Will's nasal whining but it's close!

Ha, cool. Have to admit, though, the only Wizar'd stuff I've got is that first EP and the Smoldering Sinners 7" that came out on Rusty Axe. Did that label go under, or what? They kept putting out freaky black/noise projects and I always thought it was weird that they had released stuff by The Wizar'd.

Should definitely check out their other work. The last album especially.

It was Matt from the now defunct Sydney band Shackles that hooked The Wizar'd up with a label, but I can't remember if it was Barbarian Wrath or Rusty Axe.

They have another band, Space Raven, that used to be pretty similar to The Wizar'd, too, but are pretty much 80's heavy metal now. Not that that's a bad thing at all.

Most memorable set I ever saw The Wizar'd do was a pisstake of all their own songs, with Horned Lord as a thrash song and Crushing Gothic Slime as a psychadelic pop song. Also their latest album is pretty killer, the title track is rad.

The Wizar'd have got a few tracks from their new effort up. Really solid album.
