Biography

Dorset, UK (1993 – present)

Electric Wizard are a band from Dorset, UK. They have a distinct, yet traditional sound that incorporates and traits, with lyrics typically involving the occult, witchcraft, H.P. Lovecraft, horror films and marijuana. During 2003, founding members Tim Bagshaw and Mark Greening left to form the band Ramesses, leaving guitarist/vocalist Jus Oborn the only remaining founding member.

The oblivion and ecstasy of crushing doom and high grade marijuana, a sonic aural trip far, far away from this world, where only cyclopean walls of crackling vintage tube amps in full overdrive and primal ritualistic beats can wash away all the filth and drudgery of everyday life. Their music can be described as Doom Metal. Their sound is a crushing behemoth of funeral march psychedelia. Violent, bleak and ritualistic.

Born in Dorset, England in 1993, in a quiet country town, initially they were the product of frustration, unemployment and excessive drug abuse. But through hallucinogenic experimentation and occult sciences they realized their true potential. A celebration of outre low brow art like Weird Tales, 70’s horror and B-movies, head shop art, drug comix, italian pornohorror comics, Crepax, Lovecraft, Howard etc. etc…coupled with a morbid fascination in cults, witchcraft, freemasonry, biker culture, mysticism and ancient occult sciences and how these dark arts can be applied to music.

    "Hi y'all, my name is Tyrone Freeman. I'm a writer, artist and poet. it's not my day job but it is my passion. Recently with the nice weather I was driving with my windows down and came to a stop light. Right next to me a young woman was playing some music in her car and I couldn't help but notice it, because it sounded very blues influenced. I asked her who the artist was, and she proclaimed "Electric Wizard", I asked her what kind of music it was and she said it was "doom metal"? When I got home I proceeded to buy all of the albums right off of the itunes! To me this music sounds like blues music from the future! Anyway, i'm thinking of hiring a guitarist and having him play in this style as a backing track to some of my darker poems, particularly one poem I have in mind when I almost was beaten to death by the police in Baltimore in the early 2015's. I just wanted to know what fans of this type of music would think about a man like me incorporating it into my artwork?"
