Regrettably we have to call off the yet confirmed tour dates until end of June for the time being due to the critical illness of lead vocalist WIZZ.
He has been diagnosed with cancer and will have to undergo a tedious treatment.
Please do respect the privacy of the family.
Many thanks for all the support you showed so far (in personal messages and on facebook) - they are all detected and highly appreciated, but might not be replied or 'liked' as a result of the overwhelming number.
As a matter of course you will be informed about any changes whatsoever.
ROCK LIVES ON \m/
Keep your horns up!
Wizz Wizzard, classic metal band from Belgium, are to release a 2nd full album via Rocksector Records. Where The River Runs Cold will be released officially on 14th March 2016 and is available to pre-order now at www.rocksector.com
Since inception in late 2006, the band has celebrated its' key influences with roots in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal and in recent years that's seen them visit UK shores regularly to play live shows especially at SOS Festival in Manchester where they've become established as virtually the resident band. The warmth with which British audiences have welcomed Wizz Wizzard is testament to how well they've taken their inspiration from British metal then exported that successfully back to the UK, spearheaded not least by the charismatic and affable frontman Wizz.
Album release Where The River Runs Cold
The new album includes Luke Appleton (Iced Earth / Absolva / Fury UK) playing as guest on guitar especially on the final track Wonders of the World - a song which first appeared on the 'Restless' acoustic album of 2015 by Chris Appleton (Absolva / Blaze Bayley / Fury UK). Luke also plays guitar on World of Shadows, whilst Chris Appleton also contributed various backing vocals on the album, acoustic guitar on Break Away and additional guitar on Return of the Vampires.
Wizz Wizzard released its' full debut album Tears from The Moon via Rocksector back in March 2013. Although the debut was well received the band now feels that Where The River Runs Cold steps things up a gear.
The Wizz Wizzard version of Wonders of the World remains available for free download and streaming as an mp3 at soundcloud.com/rocksector
A music video will also follow soon.
Where The River Runs Cold was self-produced and recorded in late 2015 at engineer Bart Wyns' studio in Lotenhulle, Belgium.
It is to be launched at Wizz's own festival Wizzfest on 19th March with a sell-out crowd for the 5th consecutive year.
The band can also be seen live back in the UK on 16th July at SOS Festival in Manchester.
We'll rock your socks off.
