THE BLACK WIZARDS
The Black Wizards were still a long way from life when Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix or Janis Joplin rode the half-world scoop. They could be more children of the digital generation; however, they seem to have been transported by a time machine. Joana Brito (voice and guitar), Paulo Ferreira (guitar), João Mendes (bass) and João Lugatte (drums) express themselves through psychedelic grooves with a certain amount of fuzz. In 2015, the Lake Of Fire edition projected the band to considerably higher status. The release of this first long duration confirmed the potential already demonstrated in the Fuzzadelic EP. Following overseas concerts and attendance at relevant festivals comes “What the Fuzz”, the band’s second long duration. The avalanche of weight fades into fancier melodies and more experimentalism. This album took the band to bigger stages and more concerts abroad. The third album “Reflections” came out on August 23 and confirms what has long been suspected that The Black Wizards are one of the most promising and hard-working bands of recent times. Reflections is a breath of fresh air with just the right dose of salt and even some pepper. Farther and farther from the stoner and closer to a psychedelic fused with old-fashioned rock.
