About

"The riffs are highly contagious, and that crunchy, sludgy, radioactively vibrating guitar tone seems potent enough to liquefy internal organs over time" - No Clean Singing

Bertrum is a 1400 year old gorilla who is also a wizard. Bertrum is immortal - and bored. One day, Bertrum decided to start a band, and Gorilla Wizard was born.

Gorilla Wizard is big groovy sludge metal formed in New York in 2018 featuring members of Kaiju Daisenso and Favoritje. The band members follow the follies of their lead guitarist and song writer, Bertrum, as he enchants audiences with fantastic tales and big groovy riffs from his magical cauldron. Taking grooves from bands like Orange Goblin and sonic intensity from bands like Bongripper, Gorilla Wizard deliver humongous melodies and serious sonic weight.
