Rebel Wizard Brings Low-Fi Metal Back With Reissue Of Triumph Of Gloom

This is low-fi heavy metal at its best! Negative metal act, Rebel Wizard, will reissue the maniacal sounds of the gritty and raw Triumph of Gloom full-length via Prosthetic Records next month.

Check out the track “Ease of Wretchedness and Wonder” here on Yell! Magazine.

A creation from Australian musician NKSV, who’s most well-known for his work with the black metal/noise group Nekrasov, Rebel Wizard’s delivery is difficult to sum up with one simple label. While containing traces of black and thrash metal roots, with a touch of NWOBHM and the epicness of power metal, NKSV has coined the term “negative metal” to describe Rebel Wizard’s unique output. Negative metal, as defined by NKSV, is an “anarchic alchemical process of outsider energies respecting the power of traditional triumphant metal into a unique sound to smash out the coerced gloom and banality of our times.” The term is not meant to be construed with the sense of depression or nihilism, but instead to focus on self-negation, a doing away of limiting one’s full potential by limiting oneself to a category or label. Rebel Wizard seeks to destroy any hindrance of this sort with triumphant pounding fists.

Described as, “an electrifying, high-intensity collection of absolutely masterful riffs and scintillating lead guitar pyrotechnics, organized into songs that are powerfully addictive from the very first listen” in a review by, Triumph of Gloom, initially self-released by NKSV will be reissued by Prosthetic Records on February 24th, and will include a previously unheard bonus track, “Defenders of the Gloom.”
