About Electric Wizard
As the world plunges into chaos, in this the final days of the wretched human race, there is only one antidote to this misery…..THE ELECTRIC WIZARD.
ELECTRIC WIZARD is the heaviest band in the world. 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 valve amplifiers set to the full overdrive and primal ritualistic beats can wash away all the filth and drudgery of everyday life. Our music is DoomMetal, the only true definition. We toll the bell of hell, our sound is a crushing behemoth of funeral march psychedelia. Violent, bleak and ritualistic, we bow to the black altar of the RIFF. We do not rock, we kill!
Born in Dorset, England in 1993, in a quiet country town, initially we were the product of frustration, unemployment and excessive drug abuse. But through hallucinogenic experimentation and occult sciences we realised our true potential. Eventually becoming a multi-tentacled paen to dark and weird subjects. 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, nazi mysticism and ancient occult sciences and how these dark arts can be applied to music. We have created a true one way ticket away from this dead planet.
Even early members of the group have fallen to the wayside, driven insane by the pressure of our insane creed, yet the twisted soul of the band has survived. After a shaky rebirth the vision has solidified and we are now ready to unleash our 6th LP.
