Wizardthrone - Hypercube Necrodimensions (2021)


Unleashing one of the most over the top and yet brilliant Symphonic-whatever-Metal releases, today we have Wizardthrone and their debut full-length release “Hypercube Necrodimensions”. Featuring members from bands like Alestorm, Nekrogoblikon, Gloryhammer, and Æther Realm, this band creates a very explosive and lush Metal sound with tons of wacky influences and over the top orchestrations. Imagine Gloryhammer, Æther Realm, with a dose of Children of Bodom and Obscura, and you can almost approximate what this band sounds like.

The release opens with the ravaging “Black Hole Quantum Thermodynamics”, perfectly blending dramatic orchestrations with heavy melodic guitars and a crafty use of harsh and clean vocals. The mood is set very epic from the start, and it never lets go as we can hear in the immersive “Frozen Winds Of Thyraxia” and the playful “Incantation Of The Red Order”, both tracks filled with killer guitar leads and well crafted tempo changes.

While some might be wondering if this band is just a rehash of the member’s main outfits, and we can easily say this is far from it as songs like “Forbidden Equations Deep Within the Epimethean Wasteland” have that old-school Symphonic Black Metal vibe mixed in with folky and more technical elements. We long songs like “The Coalescence of Nine Stars in the System Once Known as Markarian-231” and “Of Tesseractual Gateways and the Grand Duplicity of Xhul”, both of which show perfectly create that cinematic experience thanks to the storytelling being quite well integrated into the moods of the music.

Saving the most epic track for last, “Beyond the Wizardthrone (Cryptopharmalogical Revelations of the Riemann Zeta Function)” is a 13-minute behemoth that weaves back and forth multiple styles and delivers everything the band has to offer in one cohesive package. As a whole, “Hypercube Necrodimensions” is an intense and aurally rewarding musical experience. The music is expertly composed and arranged, while the lyrical context around the band nicely adds to the madness. If you like epic, melodic, and over the top Symphonic Metal, you can’t miss out on Wizardthrone.
