Staff review by

These German wizards are, how it ever might sound, not newbies to our metal scene. They were formed already back in 1989 and this records is their sixth.
Now I know the name of the band sounds very cliché and that you probably will take them for bands like Wizards, Wizzard or the Polish band Wizard.
Anyway, I came in contact with this band around the release of their latest album "Odin" in 2003, then I didn't get fond of them at all, the sound on that album was pretty weak and their music didn't really catch my attention on the right way, so I was a bit sceptic this time to, when "Magic Circle" arrived to my mailbox.

After a few very old school sounding heavy metal albums and then a power metal album, Wizard again gives us something new. It's heavy metal again but faster and more professional then their previous efforts in the genre, they also lost their old school touch. Another new thing is the very professional sounding production; it still isn't perfect but does sound very good now. The drumming is mostly fast and one-sided this time but since the main bulk of the music is by the riffs this is acceptable.

Rating: 5 IMO the band sounds too much like Manowar on this album, they always sounded like Manowar, but this time it has been taken too far. And this is mainly due to the vocals and song writing. Listening to these songs makes me miss their earlier albums. These are not the best songs the band is capable of writing. From these songs, IMO only "Metal" is something that can be regarded as good stuff rather than average.
