    Thanks a fuckload, ruining the surprise like that! You could’ve said, “where’d that Candlemass song go, the one that someone who may or may not be me submitted?”

    Impetigo - Wizard of Gore

    Nice filthy grooves. 8/10

    Varathron - Hellwitch (Witches Gathering)


    I love how Varathron have reinvented themselves. Sounds like Swedish melodeath in a way, but still with those classic Greek hooks and occultish keyboards. Chorus riff is a banger. 9/10

    Saint Vitus - Mystic Lady


    The faster section is the best thing here, but Saint Vitus are just too plodding for my taste. 6/10

    Black Knight - Day of the Wizard

    Sounds like one of these NWOTHM bands but lo and behold they’re actually 80s. It’s OK but fairly forgettable. 6/10

    Black Magic - Rite of the Wizard

    A few OK riffs but the vocals are just bad. Production seems oddly muted too and the song ends without really going anywhere. 5/10

    Barathrum - Dark Sorceress (Autumn Siege)

    This gives off similar vibes to the Varathron track, some black/death elements but very much an old school melodic sensibility. 8/10

    Savatage - White Witch


    A band I’ve always found pretty lame. Barely a cut above hair metal. 3/10

    Mystifier - An Elizabethan Devil Worshipper's Prayer Book


    Classic, demented stuff. Can’t really rate higher than 7.5/10 though just because Mystifier works better in album format.

    Obtained Enslavement - Warlock


    ‘Witchcraft’ is a fucking killer album so I’m glad someone picked a track off it. The last minute and a half here is bliss. 9/10

    Necrodeath - The Revenge of the Witches


    Tedious 4/10

    Avatarium - Lady in the Lamp

    So this is Leif’s other band huh? Not metal, but it’s a gorgeous song. That solo channels David Gilmour in a big way. 9/10

    I'm enjoying the band/song name symmetry between Black Knight - Day of the Wizard and Black Magic - Rite of the Wizard. Didn't even realize that when I ordered the two songs adjacent.

    How very apropos. Barathrum and Varathron both come from the same Ancient Greek word.

    I like how the chosen intro vid was uploaded by someone using the handle Fu Manchu. For a moment I thought we were gonna be rating a stoner rock intro or something.

    Impetigo - The Wizard of Gore
    Music is OK, but I'm not too fond of the vocals. 4/10

    Varathron - Hellwitch (Witches Gathering)
    Best part was the one from 2:56 until 3:24, but the music was overall quite decent (apart from the - luckily - rather short blast beats part). Vocals might not be my favourite kind, but are still bearable. I wonder if the vocalist was hungry when they were recording the vocal parts of this song, because to me, it sounds rather like he's singing "sandwich" than "Hellwitch" all the time. 7/10

    Saint Vitus - Mystic Lady
    Not one of my favourite songs by Saint Vitus, but still 8.5/10

    Black Knight - Day of the Wizard
    Sounds dated (because it is), but even though it's just "ordinary" Heavy Metal, I really like this song and also the vocals. 8/10

    Black Magic - Rite of the Wizard
    Sounds dated (even though it isn't) and the stlye isn't that much different from the previous song. I also like this song, though a bit less than Black Knight. 7.5/10

    Barathrum - Dark Sorceress (Autumn Siege)
    Overall quite enjoyable. The fact that the music is more Doom than Black Metal and that the vocals sound more like Thrash than Black Metal most likely did help (for me). 7.5/10

    Savatage - White Witch
    I like the guitar work and the vocals, especially the screams. The chorus is disappointingly dull compared to the rest of the song, though. Therefore only 7/10

    Mystifier - An Elizabethan Devil Worshipper's Prayer Book
    Vocalist sounds like a hoarse downtuned Gollum ("my precious booook"). As regards the lyrics, it looks like they tried to include any known cliché associated with Black Metal. These "over the top"-lyrics in combination with how they are recited plus the sometimes funny pronunciation had me giggling more than once. Since I neither dislike the music nor the vocals and especially because of its high - most likely unintended - comedic value, I rate this song 8.5/10 (If the vocalist had pronounced "devil" like "evil" (or vice versa) to make it rhyme, I'd probably have fallen off my chair and added an extra half a point for it!)

    Obtained Enslavement - Warlock
    Lyrics not as cringe-worthy as in the song before, thus far less comedic value. Music-wise, pretty generic Black Metal - with a few nice keyboard melodies here and there hidden underneath. While I found the mostly spoken words-vocals in the previous song funny, the usual Black Metal-vocals in this song just go on my nerves. 3.5/10

    Necrodeath - The Revenge of the Witches
    Music-wise, a decent song, but the last minute is just an overlong inispired fader. I really do like the lyrics, criticising the witchhunt in Triora in the late 16th century (looked it up after reading the lyrics) and thus far away from any run-of-the-mill-"devil/evil/satan-blablabla". Since the vocals are mostly still bearable and because of the lyrics, I rate this song 7/10 (Why this clip has got an "Explicit lyrics"-warning is beyond me.)

    Avatarium - Lady in the Lamp
    Even though neither Candlemass' "A Sorcerer's Pledge" nor their "Witches" have been submitted, Leif Edling still found his way into this round. By far the softest song in this playlist, but there's no rule that ballads aren't eligible and this is an excellent one! I love the song itself, the vocals and, of course, especially the fantastic guitar work/solos. Therefore 10/10
