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 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.

    yeah, digging the riffs and overall song structure, but vocals seem kinda off and it still just barely teases the heaviness once synonymous to the wizzuhrd. they're hardly "back to the old stuff". hope the rest of the album has more than implied heaviness.

    If only heaviness was just pumping up bass and distortion... "Ritual Abuse" LP by Cough is heavy, "I am Nothing" just... isn't quite. I mean, I'm not gonna try to force you what to think, just saying.

    Ah well... I feel absolutely nothing while listening to this new song. I still have some (high) hopes for new album though.

    All of you who would say it sounds like the old stuff, you obviously have not listened to the old stuff that much.

    That song is fucking garbage, this band needs to break up.

    I enjoyed the new song more than anything off Black Masses, more reminiscent of the 'Come my Fanatics...' era.

    amusing story about the last time i saw them live: group of young guys in front of me got their friend stoned for the first time. about halfway through supercoven, the three 'heavy stoners bra' started flipping out and left - leaving their stoned pal behind. a while later he realises they are gone and loks like he is about to freak out, so i told him to forget about them and enjoy the show, and hung out with him for the rest of the set.
