Celestial Wizard’s “Winds Of The Cosmos”: A Cosmic Metal Odyssey

Navigating through Celestial Wizard’s album, ‘Winds Of The Cosmos’, feels like embarking on an intergalactic odyssey propelled by fiery passion and anchored in profound emotional depth. The band delivers an electric amalgam of death metal, straight-up heavy metal, and melodic metal, dosed with a delightful 80s vibe that serves as a nod to the genre’s golden age.

The album swims in an energetic, anthemic ambiance that never lets up but instead transitions and transforms like a cosmic entity constantly undergoing star-studded metamorphosis. Tastefully strewn across the record are tribute-like elements to metal icons of the past, conjuring echoes of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, yet reshaped in a formula that remains uniquely Celestial Wizard.

The heart of this celestial beast pumps rich, heavy metal blood through the virtuosic guitar duo of Nick Daggers and Will Perkins. Delivering hard-hitting riffs and a melody that hails from a realm of frosty dungeons and clandestine wizards, they craft a masterful sound that reverberates throughout the cosmos.

Sitting comfortably astride this tornado of guitar mastery is Tim Gillman’s thunderous percussion. His drumming blazes a trail through the soundscape, matched in intensity by Soren Bray’s throbbing bass tones. Together, they concoct a rhythm section that drives the album forward with the relentless power of a supernova.
