Speaking on the song and accompanying video, Robin harris (vocals and bass) comments: ““The Wolves of Ossory” was inspired by Irish legends of savage bands of skin-changing bandits wandering the countryside and causing wanton destruction and death to everyone in their path, just for fun. This is how I feel when I double fist with models while marauding the back streets of a Vancouver suburb with the guys. Sometimes a guy wants to sing songs under the stars and wax the poetry of love and life, sometimes he wants to break it couldn’t be easier. The video was inspired by some of our favorite videos (and songs to boot): “Bewitched” through SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES and “The Call of the Winter Moon” through IMMORTAL. Take advantage of it or FOAD “.
Stacked full of grand melody, tempered by true organic heavy metal hymns, Hex wolf is a future modern occult classic. distinctly Canadian, distinctly evil and distinctly Wizard; the album crosses folk, crosses black metal and embraces the fantastic while remaining absolutely true to themselves.
Recorded in their own studio in Vancouver, Wolf’s curse was designed by Tim Creviston and the group themselves, before being mastered by Brad boatright. The ten-track album is packed with visceral blackened death metal delivered to a relentless beat, evoking mysticism and magic at every turn.
Wizard has been – since its creation – a vector of personal freedom. The work of art for Hex wolf – created by the singer, Robin harris, – includes an inverted fleur-de-lis representing their anti-authority, anti-state and anti-religion position. Begun unceremoniously from the remnants of a hardcore punk band that primarily focused on themes of self-hatred and existential desperation, Wizard ruthlessly cut the fat, seeking sound and dowsing for enlightenment.
No mercy, ride or die, Wizard will evolve forever.
