Italian doom riffers Wizard Master premiere new single »Hell Riders« via Cultartes!
Says the band: “It contains all the sense of bewilderment, confusion and contradiction of the album. The narrative voice speaks to a stunned and disillusioned listener who is now prey to the sick society that wants to control him, cannibalize him, Victim of mental illness takes refuge in estrangement as a last resort in order to survive. Wandering aimlessly in his inner self he understands how weak he is but also how free he is, an Hell Rider… recognizing his own nature he discovers the cyclicality of reality: Birth, life, suffering, happiness, death and thanks to this new awareness manages to make sense of all this madness.”

“»Ablanathanalba« will be even more bluesy, powerful and psychedelic. It will be an album in which we will venture into territories still unexplored by us and will be strengthened by all the experience gained both in terms of song writing and recording techniques. It will be a record that will tell these crazy times.. in which nothing is true anymore but everything is ephemeral and the opposite of itself. We will sink into this madness and return perhaps with something more than when we left.”
