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.

    "I´m nothing" is a massiv drilling tune!! At first I was a little bored with it, but it´s definetly a grower, same goes for "SadioWitch". It´s how "Witchcult Today" and "Black Masses" should have sounded like in the first place. The first Wizard album I´m going to buy since "We live". Really looking forward to this!!!

    Far from their best, but so much better than Black Masses. Solid record.

    Song titles for the new album are exactly what they should be... and they ALWAYS just threw those theme-fitting keywords around... nothing new, but wasn´t to be expected (or needed, even).... people just think they know better.... as usually ;)

    they're just tossing and jumbling around the same 12 doomy-druggy-satany keywords for song titles at this point, but who the fuck cares.

    I like the titles for they're kinda sleazy and primitive, but yeah, they already done it.

    Song titles for the new album are fucking dumb. They're really not trying anymore.
