The 8th Horcrux is a wizard rock band from Ottawa, Kansas. The group specializes in parodies of familiar songs, adding a Harry Potter twist. To date, the band has released four full-length albums, four EPs, one live album, and one compilation album.
The 8th Horcrux began after Paul Thomas happened to stumble upon the genre of 'Wizard Rock.' Inspired by this new found music style, and the then-recent Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince film, Thomas, and fellow friend and musician, Trina Sieg, began working on a wrock-themed album. The two took a new name. Dubbing themselves “The 8th Horcrux,” they became a parody band, much in the vein of “Weird Al” Yankovic, which devoted the entirety of its content to anything relating to the Harry Potter series. In 2009, they released Potterwatch!, which was followed by Accio Awesome (2010), Noize from the Cupboard (2011), and Ridiculously Wicked (2012). The band is currently working on a new studio ablum, slated for release in mid-2016.
