New record coming in April 2019!

To kick off the new year in style, HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS RECORDS is proud to present the first and hotly anticipated details for GLITTER WIZARD’s upcoming, fourth album release!

Are they glam? Are they metal? Stoner rock? Psych? Prog? For over a decade, people have been trying to pin down GLITTER WIZARD but this band refuses to be pigeonholed. As they play a unique brand of freak rock and roll that Julian Cope once described as “unashamedly glamorous hard rock” and he wasn’t wrong. These San Francisco heshers have been wowing rock fans with heavy riffs and a high octane stage show that combines it all: psych, metal, punk, glam and prog into a sound that is both hard to categorize and easily recognizable as their own. Pulling influences from the entire heavy rock canon, G Wiz combines scorching guitar riffs and spaced out synths to create something familiar, yet entirely new and weird. Their upcoming album, Opera Villains, is set for a release on April 20th 2019 and will bring the heat that we’ve come to expect from GLITTER WIZARD but adds a layer of dramatism that we haven’t heard before. Now, HEAVY PSYCH SOUNDS RECORDS is proud to not only unveil the album details with artwork, track list and pre-order editions, but is also sharing a first appetizer from the band’s new record to the blistering track ‘A Spell So Evil’ with us! Says the band: “A Spell So Evil gives you exactly what you want – a song about wizards, sung by wizards.“

Just premiered with Rock Hard Magazine, Shindig and Metal Insider, you can stream ‘A Spell So Evil’  in full right HERE!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
