After releasing the excellent Great Addictions to Blindingly Dark, Worldly Life EP back in February, Rebel Wizard is coming back in August with the new full length Voluptuous Worship of Rapture and Response. On the new single “The Poor and Ridiculous Alchemy of Christ and Lucifer and Us All”, NKSV sticks to what the project does best: melodic blackened NWOBHM shrapnel and absurdly long, complicated song titles. The track spends the majority of it’s intro shredding around Judas Priest and Iron Maiden solos before diving into dense speed metal leaning thrash riffs. NKSV’s shattered glass screeches come into the fold as catchy as they are abrasive. Check it out below via Invisible Oranges.
Voluptuous Worship of Rapture and Response is out 8/17 on Prosthetic Records.
