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.

    Deathrash111, lol Mark Greening left again, what the fuck... I just learned from your comment, thought things were doing well. Whatever, I still hope the new album turns out to be nice.

    riffs. if they only copied older riffs, no, they copied the riffs from their last album. 4 years without a single new riff. generic sadiowitch video you'd expect to see from EW worship band, not from EW themselves. plus all the drama behind mark's departure and leaving rise above. oh yes, they need some new lyrics too. judging by the two songs I heard - fuck you EW.

    It's a strange fact to me that everyone is so negative about the new album. I like every tune I heard so far!

    I am nothing is a killer song. Definitely the heaviest shit they dropped since We live

    Now are they? I must check then if they are listed in my local Sonisphere, if so I will actually have a reason to go there again.

    Oh, they were already on Sonisphere with Metallica, HIM and Limp Bizkit. Wow. Just wow...

    " They've realised that they can churn out the same shit over and over again, making P's without trying. Fair play to them. " now this is what I've been dreading also... They are slowly but surely selling out. Nevertheless, I find "I am Nothing" and "LDAM" good songs, allthough neither of them brings anything new to this band's entity with their predictable riffs and such. I'd say that next time they do a tour, the venues are gonna be more full of audience, who don't even have a clue of bands like Witchfinder General, Sleep and Black Sabbath - outside the song "Paranoid" =/= Hipsters and "casuals".

    I Am Nothing is quite cool, in my opinion, but yeah, this SadioWitch track is as recycled as you can get. But still, the album might turn out to be nice, we'll see. Their latest one Black Masses is killer.

    New tracks are a colossal letdown, band appear to be behaving Very unprofessionally towards fans, former bandmates and record labels, they really don't appear to be that bothered in playing live anymore and their studio releases have been getting worse since Witchcult, as a fan I actually hope Time To Die will be it and the band will finally let what remains of the legacy die
