Wizard is a German Germany power metal band, formed in 1989 by the drummer Sören van Heek.
The band is often called "Germany's answer to Manowar Manowar (band) ". The lyrics are similar: which often are about battles, metal, war, steel and such subjects. (The exception is the album Odin Odin (album) , which is a concept album about Norse mythology. ) Wizard does play a lot faster than Manowar though, and does have a high-pitched vocalist.
In 2003 longtime guitarist Michael Maass quit the band because of health problems. They got a new guitar player in Dano Boland, early 2004.
In 2006 the band left the label Limb Music after four albums and joined the somewhat bigger label Massacre Records with a new album in mind to be released in January 27, 2007, titled Goochan.
In may 18th, 2007, Michael Maass returned to the band after a four-year break.
