"Of Wariwulfs and Blutovarwes" (Massacre; 2011)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Wizard projects power metal splendor on their 11-track album "Of Wariwulfs and Blutovarwes."
Crammed with a bounty of snarling riffs (“Hagr,” “Sign of the Cross”) and super-melodic hooks aplenty (“Wariwulf”), Wizard maintains a consistent attack of traditional heaviness (“Bletzer”) smattered with progressive metal influence (“Fair Maiden Mine”) and a strong sense of histrionics.
Striking a middle ground between Iced Earth and Primal Fear, this release embodies what a power metal release should sound like.

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
