Old Man Wizard release new song “God Is Your Friend”

Heavy prog rockers OLD MAN WIZARD have released their song “God Is Your Friend” via The Obelisk. The song is taken from the upcoming album Kill Your Servants Quietly which is out on November 5th.

Frontman Francis Roberts commented:
“This song went through a ton of iterations before I settled on the version you’re hearing today. It was almost an acoustic song! I’m glad we switched directions and ended up with whatever the doom metal dance party that’s on the album is. Here are some fun facts about it:

-This song has my favorite guitar “sound effect” just before the second chorus.
-I think this song might have more chord changes than anything else we’ve released.
-The band is tracked live.
-The bass guitar is doubled with a minimoog throughout most of the song.
-The third verse was originally going to have clean “funk” guitar but the tone we recorded with ended up reminding me of early OZZY tracks and I really liked it so we kept it.”
