Review

So far I have just seen less than 5 of these EP's, guess the edition was really really small, 500 or even less. Better don't hesitate if you find a copy offered somewhere and you know you want it, coz it will be difficult to find another one. Musically THE WIZARD are a kinda very catchy melodic Heavy Metal troop with local touch (not a negative point), using keyboards which are creating a nice atmoshere and an even epic touch. Sadly nothing over the top, just solid german stuff that prohably lacks some power, but instead the band compensates that "fault" with highly listenable melodic songs ("Where's all our love been gone"). The late 80's and beginning 90's had produced a ton of locally limited Metal records in Germany that did completely differ in quality and songwriting and especially in their vocalists from the usual mid 80's Gama stuff and THE WIZARD do belong to that category as well. Too bad, it's just seen so damn rarely. The record sleeve doesn't reveals any info of where they came from either ...
