In this Unknown Music Thursday Blog, we are going to get into another newer and upcoming band.  The band is called Black Wizard and the record is their self titled.  There is not much on the history of this band.  They were formed before 2009 or 2010 because of their Facebook joining date.  I do not know about you but I am looking forward to get into this music.  I love how they label themselves.  Let us get into the music.

Track List:

Spacer

There is a nice acoustic guitar at the beginning of the opening track.  There is some nice drumming and bass playing.  It is pretty calming at first.  I love how they worked the second guitar playing over the top of everything.  I love the effects on the guitar.  The music is pretty strong so far on this song.  The singing is pretty good and it fits the music.  The effects on his vocals are perfect mix and haunting.  I love the back up vocals.  There is some pretty good lyrics on “Spacer.”  I love the guitar break and time changes about the mid-point of the song.  It sounds like time changes.  There is a pretty solid guitar solo but short towards the end of the song.  I love the ending.

Young Wisdom

I love the music at the beginning.  The singer is singing pretty good.  There is some pretty good lyrics too.  I love the drumming on this song.  The bass playing has been pretty solid so far on this record.  I love the guitar playing on this song.  I love music change half way through with the acoustic guitar and then enters a short guitar solo.  It enters a slower part of the song.  This is a pretty dark song.  There is a nice guitar break towards the end of the song that turns into a pretty good guitar solo.

Midnight

I love the drumming and guitar playing.   The singer is singing like all the rest of the tracks and it is pretty good.  I love how they used the back up vocals on this song.  This song has a nice pace to it and a little different from the rest of the songs thus far.  There is some nice music on this song.  I have to say this is one of my favorite songs so far on this record.

H.U.G.H

This song might come off being heavy but it has some weird influence in it that I cannot figure out.  I love the singing and the music is pretty good.   I love faster pace towards the back half of the song.  The drumming and bass playing is solid for being the backbone of this band.  They have a really good rhythm selection.  I love the guitar solo that is short and to the point.  I love how they are using the back up vocals on this song.  I love the ending to this song.

Danger Dances

I love the acoustic guitar and the slightly distorted guitar at the beginning.  I can hear some Radiohead influence on this song.  This might be the shortest song on the record, however, it is one of the best songs as far as it comes to the music side.  They wrote some great music on “Danger Dances.”

Somethin’ Sweet

I love the classic hard rock sounding guitar at the beginning.  The drumming and bass playing are pretty solid.  I love the bass playing in the main part of the song.  I really not a fan of bass players playing with a pick.  The drumming is pretty crazy on this song.  The lead singer is singing is solid with some great lyrics.  The lead singer’s screaming singing is well placed and not over the top.  I love the guitar players trading off on the guitar break.

Appetite

I love the guitar playing along with the bass and drumming.  I love the singing on this song.  I am not a fan of all the effects on his vocals in some parts.  I love the guitar playing at the mid-point of the song.  There is a nice guitar solo towards the end of the song.

Wicked Wanderer

The last song on this record is “Wicked Wanderer.”  The guitars remind me of something that Megadeth would do on their songs.  The drumming and bass playing is solid.  I love the bass playing before the singer starts to sing.  I love the build up to the main part of the song.  This is a pretty solid ending track to this record.  There is a nice guitar solo towards the end of the song.  I love how the guitar players are playing the same riff to give that double-sided sound.  I love the ending to this song.

  • Kyle Fee – Bass

Closing, this is a pretty good band with a heavier side that you do not want to mess with anytime.  I love the music and the singing.  There are some parts of the singing that I just feel the band needs to get away from with the effects on the vocals.  Overall, the music is pretty solid and lyrics are pretty good.  They wrote a nice first record and I highly recommend you to check this band out.  You will not be disappointed.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
