Get Ready For The Pit With CELESTIAL WIZARD’s “Eternal Scourge”

Get Ready For The Pit With CELESTIAL WIZARD’s “Eternal Scourge” Off “Winds Of The Cosmos”

Denver’s Celestial Wizard are huge nerds at heart and they infuse their modern melodic death metal with a myriad of fantasy themes. The upcoming album “Winds Of The Cosmos” is a more mature offering than their last and they aim to draw listeners in with their second single “Eternal Scourge”. Full of energy, this is their go-to pit song. Hard driving riffs come crashing in after an ambience of spooky, almost vampiric organs and guitars that set the mood. The song’s lyrics dig into plagues and war, violence and loss, and the rise and fall of heroes. Guitarist/vocalist Nick Dagger explains further:

“When Guillermo sent me that initial riff for Scourge, I knew that one was gonna be special. It’s fun to play, it’s fun to listen to, it’s the whole package. It’s fast-paced and aggressive, and it really delivers the aggression and attitude that reflects our energy on stage. The song makes you jump up like you’ve just got hit with a bolt of lightning, and that’s exactly the magic we were looking for. I think people are gonna hear this one and go nuts.”

Always working collaboratively, every single song on this album has elements from each member of the band, and they feel that’s one of the things that makes this album special. The band worked very hard on each and every song, and it is a firm display of cohesion and teamwork.

Celestial Wizard was formed in 2018 by members of a local band called Solarfall. Celestial Wizard’s founding members all shared a similar vision, they wanted to take their music to all corners of the globe and inspire others in the same way that their metal heroes have inspired them. Thrash metal and death metal are probably the biggest two influences in the band, however old school, traditional heavy metal is also near the hearts of the musicians. They are recommended for fans of Firewind, Amon Amarth, and Arch Enemy.

About:
Celestial Wizard is a fantasy-inspired heavy metal band based out of Denver, Colorado. Formed in 2018, this heavy metal quartet delivers crushing riffs and grand stories of dragons and wizards. Seeking to stand out among the others, Celestial Wizard combines the best elements of death metal with symphonic and synthwave elements creating a unique and engaging sound.

In the beginning, they carried a symphonic, fantasy sound dousing every song with a healthy dose of strings, choirs, synthesizers, and the like. This vibe can be heard on their debut album “A Sinister Awakening” (2018). Intended to be a concept album, they marketed some of the limited edition tapes and mini VHS tapes as though the album was a movie, thus The tapes ended up getting put in the soundtrack section of record stores.

The next year, drummer Tim Gillman joined Nick Daggers (guitar/vocals), Guillermo Jurado (guitar/bass), and Amethyst Noir (vocals) and they slashed most of the unnecessary backing tracks and refocused the music on the riffs and the core elements of the band. The evolution is reflected in the second album “Winds Of The Cosmos” (2022) (Release Date July 15th).

They deliver an energetic and engaging performance while keeping the sound tight. They make an effort each night to make their songs come alive and immerse the audience in their love for playing. They have played with bands including Alestorm, Gloryhammer, Insomnium, Nekrogoblikon, and Unleash The Archers. Combining their passions of Dungeons and Dragons, space adventure, and fantasy, Celestial Wizard takes influences like Arch Enemy, Metallica, Firewind, and Turisas and forge a path all their own!
