About Wizards Of Kaos
The wheels of this stoner rock and roll machine started turning in late 2009 when ex-sHeavy guitarist Dan Moore took the helm of guitar and vocals and joined forces with Ritche Perez, Karl Hawkins and Jim Barter to create WIZARDS OF KAOS. After self-releasing their “New World Mistress” EP the band recorded their self-titled, full-length album at Ritche’s Maghouse Studio in St. John’s Newfoundland which is set to be released in May 2012 by east coast metal label Diminished Fifth Records. The 13 songs fuse stoner rock with heavy metal with emphasis on making things bigger, heavier, tighter and meaner than their previous EP.
