So, this review has been a long time in the making. Savage Wizdom has been working on their latest release for some time now. As we all know, life gets in the way and sometimes slows down the creative process. Of course, the best thing is that we now have some new music from the band. It may only be one song for now but the whole CD, titled A New Beginning, is soon to follow.
Just to refresh everyone’s memories, click on the blue link to read a previous article for some background information about the band from the first article we did.
Also, as a prelude to this song review, please click this blue link for the previous article concerning the upcoming release of the bands next CD titled A New Beginning.
The band’s lead guitar player, Pablo Roybal, gave me a quick update back in December 2013. He said things were progressing with the new CD. Unfortunately, the progress was a bit slow and the planned release date was for Spring 2014.
In the past couple of weeks, Pablo sent me a copy of the title track, A New Beginning. We had previously agreed that I would be one of the first people outside of the band’s inner circle to hear and provide a review.
After the first listen, I was hooked. The bumble bee/galloping guitar riff intro grabbed me instantly and I knew it was going to be a great song. The drums, bass and guitars are solid. When combined with Steve Montoya’s vocals the song, in my opinion, comes together as a great power metal style of song.
So TMT readers, I give the title track to their new CD two solid thumbs up. Based on their previous work, I know the entire CD will be well worth buying for any metal fans out there. I am really looking forward the getting the full CD when it is finished.
