This last band is just silly. While Elzevir talked about the world of Harry Potter with a sense of fantasy and wonder, and while Muggle Death Camp discussed only the dark side of Harry Potter, Voldemort, a thrash/black metal band from Norway, talks about it in a very satirical manner. It does so with song names like ‘Evil is Sexy’, ‘The Baby Headed Death Eater’ (although that actually happened in the books), and ‘Cradle of Filch’, so it’s pretty easy to tell. Their music is kind of low quality and they aren’t amazing musicians, but the band is worth listening to just for the amusement value. 'Cradle of Filch' is one of the funniest songs I’ve heard in a while, and the singer’s voice just makes it even more hilarious.
These bands are a lot of fun and are worth checking out if you are into strange and interesting metal. Whether or not you like each band will probably depend on your music taste. They are folk/melodic death (Elzevir), symphonic black metal (Muggle Death Camp) and thrash metal, with some black elements (Voldemort), although each of them is pretty amusing, especially Voldemort.
Out of all of these, Elzevir seems to handle the concept of Harry Potter metal the best, adapting their own musical style to fit the Harry Potter world, although Muggle Death Camp also succeeds in creating a darkened atmosphere that would be perfect in the movies for every time Voldemort walked out on screen.
Bottom line: Give them all a listen, although they might be hard to find, especially Elzevir and their demo as Hogwarts.
