Prosthetic Records are pleased to announce the signing of REBEL WIZARD to their roster and will reissue their latest LP, Triumph of Gloom, on February 24, 2017 worldwide.

Rebel Wizard is a creation from Australian musician NKSV, who’s most well known for his work with the black metal/noise group Nekrasov, that can’t be summed up with one simple label. While containing traces of black and thrash metal roots, with a touch of NWOBHM and the epicness of power metal, Rebel Wizard have coined the term ‘negative metal’ to describe his unique sound.
