Wizard Comments On "Trail Of Death" Lyrical Direction

Wizard recently announced the new album "Trail Of Death" will be released on September 27th, 2013 via Massacre Records. After it was revealed the lyrical content would shift on this album, the band's drummer Snoppi posted the following message online via Facebook:

"Perhaps some people ask themselves why Wizard is doing an album about death and not about northern mythology or fantasy like on the past nine albums.

"I want to try to explain it in a few words. This is the first time I wrote the (most) lyrics for a Wizard album. For over ten years now I have to think about my death and death in general (no, I am not ill or anything like this). I don't want to, but the feeling is there, somehow. And to be honest, it scares me a lot.

"To think that the moment will come where you really face your last minute on earth is not a very great one I am looking forward to. So how can someone ease this feeling? Perhaps religion? Or just (try to) ignore it? Very difficult and I really don't have an answer for it. It would be fantastic if there would be an afterlife, but we cannot be sure.

"So I tried to write things down in the lyrics to show different views of death. Some have an intention, others are meant in a more funny way. I hope that you can respect these very personal feelings and perhaps one or two people are inspired to think about this theme.

"Death is not 'cool' for me and the theme was never meant to handle about because death fits so good to heavy metal (you know, death metal etc., the more brutal the cooler it is).

"If there is anybody more interested in the lyrics or has questions about it, you can of course ask me and start a conversation. Metal to the end!"
