Psychedelic metal trio HOUNSKULL have unveiled the magical new single “Clockwork Wizard”. Inspired by the 1971 film The Abominable Dr Phibes, “Clockwork Wizard” offers a glimpse of what awaits in their upcoming album The Faces of Evil later in 2023.
The band comments:
“‘Clockwork wizard’ felt like the perfect first song to show off the new album, it’s equal parts heavy and trippy. Writing the song started with the main riff and divulged down paths unexplored by the band up til that point. The lyrics are about a wizard concocting potions to send the listener through time, leaving their body to explore their future. The title of the song came from one of kyle’s favorite movies, The Abominable Dr Phibes where he has a band of automatons called The Clockwork Wizards.”

HOUNSKULL emerged in its full form in 2016, with an early incarnation of the band existing since 2012. The trio draw from a wide array of musical influences including the likes of SLOUGH FEG, BROCAS HELM and BLACK SABBATH to name a few. Striving to push their creativity to produce a unique twist with their music, HOUNSKULL take inspiration from video games, RPGs and card games. The forthcoming album sees references to the likes of Magic The Gathering and D&D, for example, hidden within. During their career HOUNSKULL have opened for the likes of ALIEN WEAPONRY and GRAVEYARD.
