The Dutch heavy/power/speed metal scene is one of the most criminally overlooked movements out there. There are many great bands from the 80s that very few people have heard of; Martyr, Vault, Mysto Dysto, Leader, Angus, and the topic of today's review, Dark Wizard (to name just a few). Along with Martyr's Darkness at Time's Edge and Vault's Sword of Steel, I consider this to be one of the very best releases to come out of that scene. While not as innovative as Martyr or as sword-wieldingly powerful as Vault, Dark Wizard's greatness comes in their ability to write absurdly catchy guitar and vocal hooks, as well as hilariously memorable lines, especially given vocalist Berto Van Veen's style of delivery. While not terribly early for heavy metal, even in the Netherlands (Picture had an album in 1983, and Vault had two), 4 out of the 5 songs here were on their first demo in 1983, so they definitely weren't behind at any rate. Their dark and occult yet catchy style is sort of reminiscent of Angel Witch with touches of Motorhead, but that doesn't really do them justice. While at first listen the EP may seem sort of generic, there are some subtler differences in the songwriting that clearly make Dark Wizard their own entity.
