Acoustic Wizard – Please Don’t Sue Me Vol. 2 (2013)

Acoustic Wizard is, perhaps unsurprisingly, an acoustic tribute band to Electric Wizard. I could never in a million years have expected this to work, but fuck, it totally does. If anything this project proves that there is real weight to the riffs that Electric Wizard have pioneered, rather than them being yet another crap band playing really slowly and smothered in distortion.

I guess this is one of those things where I really can’t say that much and you just have to listen to it to believe that it actually exists. If you’re not a fan of Electric Wizard though, I would definitely give this a miss. There used to be a Bandcamp full of this shit, but perhaps Jus’n’Co (or maybe Rise Above) got to them before us and shut ’em down…Who knows? There’s always Youtube.
