Pazazu (1984)
Rating: 8/10

Wyzard are a young four-piece metal band from San Antonio, Texas and Future Knights is their debut vinyl release. Each of the four tracks on this mini-album – ‘Future Knights’, ‘Renegade’, ‘Crystal City’ and ‘Knights Of Metal’ – are pure out-and-out metal delivered in a fast ’n’ furious style.

Guitarist Michael Angelo Valenzuela produces some fine power riffing and soloing throughout the proceedings, especially on ‘Knights Of Metal’ which for me is the best track, even if the riff is almost a carbon copy of the old Montrose classic ‘Black Train’.

No doubt power metal enthusiasts will lap up every minute of this album, and deservedly so too. A fine debut.
