Wizardthrone – Hypercube Necrodimensions

What would happen if you mashed together Alestorm, Aether Realm and Gloryhammer? Then threw it all into space? No one has ever asked that question before – well, until Wizardthrone anyway.

With this record metal’s most hilarious and clever band takes jabs at their local Italian music, fittingly calling the album ‘Italian Folk Metal.’ You may wonder why […]
