So this blog is called the underground music review and on occasion we have lost a little bit of the underground in our posts, but this one will take you way deep down into the underground, where dark things lurk like dragons, werewolves and Death-eaters (probably somewhere near Nockturn Alley). Around the world an odd phenomena has apperated known as Wizard Rock, inspired by the Harry Potter series.
From what information I have been able to conjure, it seems that this new genre originated from the magical band, Harry and the Potters. It consists of two brothers, Joe and Paul DeGeorge, who played their first show in a shed in their parents backyard in 2002 and have now played over 500 shows in 49 states.
Since then Wizard Rock has spread faster than devils snare and now there are more Wizard Rock bands than there are flavors of Berny Bott’s Every Flavored Beans. Try some of these band names on for size: Draco and the Malfoys, Tonks and the Aurors, Swish and Flick, Huffle my Puffle (my favorite name), Giny Weasly and the Short Skirts, The Hermione Crookshanks Experience and Aberforth Dumbledore and the Nannies.
So the audio on this video isn’t good enough to get an exceeds expectations on its O.W.L.S. but the screaming fans give you an idea of “Giant” fan base that is gathering faster than the D.A. on the night of Voldemort’s defeat.
There are different genres of Wizard Rock, I would consider The Whompinig Willows to be heavy metal, Doby and the House Elves to be disco/techno and Serously Black hip hop. But that is really the thing about us Harry Potter fans and fanatics, we are not united by language, skin or preferred music type, but we are united by the magical blood that flows through our veins and the raw power that is felt in the flick of a wand or the pick of a guitar string.
Until then EXPECTO PATRONUS OUT!
