Dopethrone is the third studio album by English doom metal band Electric Wizard. It was released on 28 November 2000 through Rise Above Records and re-released by the same label in 2004 and 2007 with an extra song.
Jus Oborn late spoke about the development of Dopethrone as being part of trilogy with Come My Fanatics…, and Supercoven, noting that he looked upon these albums with fondness and that "With those albums, I believe we really found our mark as a band. When we did our first album, none of us had ever been into the studio before – and had no clue what to actually do. But by the time we got to do Dopethrone, we knew what was needed – or, rather I did!"
Speaking to Kerrang! in July 2009, Jus Oborn remembered:
"Most of us were stuck in some drug addiction or alcoholism at the time, and it was just pure hate. It was us against the world, and we just wanted to make the most disgusting, foul, putrid record that anyone has ever recorded. We camped out at the studio, so it was literally just wake up, consume as much fucking drugs as possible, and then just start jamming."
