“Don’t Be Afraid” by So Many Wizards – A Song Feature
With their 2017 album, “Heavy Visions,” So Many Wizards discussed having come to grips with mortality. The follow-up track from the Los Angeles band ends with the directive “Don’t be afraid, it’s only death.” But it isn’t the insight that brings So Many Wizards to the pages of bloggers. The melodies are forceful, the tempo shifts are well executed, and the vocals are strong.
The band members of So Many Wizards vary depending upon different sources of information. For example, a recent email about a solo project identifies Devin Ratliff as a former member of the band. Thus, we will go with the credits of the track “Don’t Be Afraid” - Nima Kazerouni (vocals and guitar), Erik Felix (drums), Allie Bumsted (keys), Tomemitsu (guitar), and Devin Ratliff (bass).
