The second WIZADMASK’s studio album named “Song of a Warrior” (“Pestn Voina”) had been written in a period of 2009-2013. It was released in Internet on 31st of December 2014. The album was recorded and re-recorded in the “Totem” studio headed by Sergey Zimin.
“Song of a Warrior” tells about wars and warriors, wanderers, phantoms, faith and madness, exile and freedom. Powerful, atmospheric, mysterious – it is written in the best traditions of WIZADMASK. The album amazes everyone with its dark magnificence. It invites the listeners to its magic worlds and makes them feel with the heroes and be a part of what’s happening.
The album bursts open rapidamente right from the first notes. It goes from the calm cellos to the bright guitars, powerful drums and chorus, turning to the whirlwind of passion symbolizing the start of the battle. The album finishes with the lyrical and light instrumental which means long-expected peace and home coming happiness.
