Incense For The Damned: Electric Wizard stream “Time To Die” at NPR

I can still remember when NPR was just the background for day trips to antique sales in my parents old station wagon. Now NPR is streaming the new album from Electric Wizard. Go figure. Anyway, this is one of THE most important records of the year and one of the darkest jewels in the grim crown of Electric Wizard releases. Stoned but not dethroned, baby. Eletric Wizard are currently on the covers of New Noise (USA) and Decibel.

Time to Die has a more hateful vibe than our last single, ‘Legalise Drugs & Murder’ and our last album, Black Masses,” explains vocalist/guitarist Jus Osborn.  “Those two are kinda tripped-out stoner epics, but this is way harsher and darker.  This album is cursed… almost evil.  All of our albums in the past have had a theme – revenge, drugs, black magick – and the theme of this one is death.  Of course, death to us really means rebirth, so this album is a manifestation of a very primal occult believe in the final sacrifice.  We have gone full circle – it was inevitable, but we had to do it.  We had to kill the band so we could be reborn. It was the only way to ensure we could come back even stronger.”
