Flashback Friday – Voldemort and The Sectumsempras

4. October 2013

0 Comments

The Sectumsempras and Voldemort teamed up for this heavily goth inspired track “Imperio (Under Control)”. Later, a few members of each band got together to continue a side project called Sigulum Serpentis, bringing even more goth and synth-inspired music to wrock. I’ll admit to being more of a fan of Voldemort’s guitar driven thrash sound […]

The wizard rock world is a quieter place without the sweet, sweet crooning of these fine young gentlemen. One of the best wizard rock videos ever? Possibly. Possibly.

Flashback Friday – Thestral

Sectumsempra from Thestral on Myspace. That’s right, for this week’s Flashback Friday, it’s wizard rock’s original thrash metal band, Thestral! Thestral only has three songs up on their MySpace page at this point, and no other place to listen to their fantastic 80’s metal inspired wrock songs. They were quite active from 2006 until around […]

Unfortunately I lost her music a few years back, and aside from MySpace, there’s no place else to listen to her songs. So head […]

This week’s Flashback Friday is a bit different that what we’ve previously been featuring – rather than posting a video from a band, we’re going to post this July 2007 article about wizard rock from The Guardian newspaper in the UK. The article, which is a bit tongue in cheek, discusses the rapid growth of […]

For this week’s Wayback Machine visit, here’s a vid from our own Wizrocklopedia YouTube account featuring Split Seven Ways!

This video pretty much needs no introduction. So it won’t get one. Just press play, watch, and listen. Love the song, love the performance, and love the integration of live loops with the playing and singing. Ah Weasel King, you can do no wrong…

On behalf of everyone here at the ‘pedia, thanks for the years of laughs, great music, […]
