Wizards Of Firetop Mountain / Press

“Thundering amps and anguished shrieks can be heard when The Wizards of Firetop Mountain hold court. Be afraid, for these mortal Dublin mages are sworn to obey one true power: the riffs of rock. Channelling overlords of the 70s, and enchanted by the glamour of Black Sabbath, each time they play, the dead souls of that darkest era seem to clamour for release, to return to this plane for just one more gig. Bolstered by their oddities, the Wizards are poised to do well, having wowed the crowd at Whelans' Ones To Watch festival in January. They leave their craggy reaches and blaze down in return to that hallowed place of worship this Saturday with recalcitrant zombie-prog accomplices The Jimmy Cake and enigmatic masters, Disguise, with one aim: to make sweet, heavy music and charm hearts.”

“Falling somewhere between ’70s hard rock and ’80s metal, Wizards blast out a sound so ostentatious, it’s almost hard to stomach. Almost.”

“Filled with warm and charismatic vocals, fuzzy and frenetic guitars, their music drips with authenticity and feeling.”

“Is Rock Emotion”
