WIZARDS OF FIRETOP MOUNTAIN
“There are no words to describe just how rockin’ Wizards of Firetop Mountain are. Having gigged around Dublin tirelessly, it shouldn’t be any surprise that their live performance has become so tight and vigorous”
– Jonathan Keane, Drop-d
“...what their Facebook profile doesn’t quite spell out is the head-banging, fist-thumping brilliance of a WOFM show. Falling somewhere between ’70s hard rock and ’80s metal, Wizards blast out a sound so ostentatious, it’s almost hard to stomach. Almost.”
– Celina Murphy, Hotpress
“Kicking off at 3 minutes to midnight with their signature mix of loose, groovy riffing and traditional doomy presentation, the crowd laps it up like hungry bears on a floating whale carcass.”
– Born Again Nihilist
Wizards of Firetop Mountain play a blend of ’70s classic rock mixed with crushing stoner rock outs and ’80s metal. 2011 has seen the band blazing a relentless trail of gigs through the country to great acclaim. They have had the honor of winning Best Irish Music Video in Drop-d Writers’ Awards 2011 for their video ‘Onwards Towards the Sun’, describing the band as “the finest in sheer rock ‘n’ roll this country has to offer”.
On stage the band do not hold back. A steady flow of heavy, pounding riffs march forth like rivers of lava errupting from the depts of their blacked souls. Their live show is pure energy and all they want to do is draw you in and party. Wizards are currently adding the finishing touches to their debut album.
