Electric Wizard release “See You In Hell” video

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 6:06 PM (PST)

The legendary Electric Wizard have exhaled a cloud of brimstone smoked darkness that has taken the shape of a new video entitled “See You In Hell.” Witchfinder/Spinefarm release their newest record befittingly titled Wizard Bloody Wizard in November, but for now you can get this sweet taste HERE.

This song starts with a bluesy dirge and sounds a bit cleaner than Time To Die (in hindsight one of their darkest records). Still, no complaints here. I mean, Jus is singing about hope being lost and other fun topics. I am def in the Electric Wizard do no musical wrong camp, in general. 7 minutes of top notch shuffling, powerful retro stuff here with major auras all around.

Electric Wizard enter fairly high on the Billboard 200

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, October 8, 2014 at 11:45 AM (PST)

Electric Wizard, the UK-based doom outfit led by the provocative Jus Oborn, have the outfit’s highest chart debut to date, with their Spinefarm Records’ debut, Time to Die, entering Billboard’s Top 200 at 62.

The nine-song release, featuring singles “I am Nothing” and “SadioWitch,” is also one of the band’s most critically-acclaimed to date with Mojo Magazine declaring the album “the most uncompromising album of the year” and Pitchfork saying the album “deserves every accolade thrown its way” and going on to say “they’ve surpassed expectations and proved that they’re still as vital as they ever were.”

Produced by Oborn, the album was recorded at Toe Rag Studios in East London, with analog gear used exclusively throughout, with finishing touches done at Skyhammer Studio in “deepest, darkest” Cheshire by Chris Fielding.

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.”

Electric Wizard have revealed that their forthcoming studio album, Time To Die, will be released on Sept. 30 via Spinefarm Records; Time To Die is the eighth full-length offering from the masters of aural punishment, and is testament to the fact that Electric Wizard continue to be the most uncompromisingly heavy, genuinely twisted and evil band in the world.

This will be their first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.

In addition to this, a brand new video clip for “I am Nothing” has been unleashed via www.ElectricFuckinWizard.com.

EW guitarist/vocalist Jus Oborn has said if the track, which harnesses the dark underground death metal spirit of 1984:

“It was the year I became a metal-head.  It was heavy shit for real – there was no way you were ever going to get a decent job. So I became a Satanist, I dug up a grave, I got into tape-trading, I had a one-man noise/black/death metal band called Regurgitated Guts, and there were loads of documentaries on TV warning us not to listen to the devil’s music…”

All official Electric Wizard pre-order bundles are now live on www.ElectricFuckinWizard.com, featuring limited numbers of vinyl, CD, T-shirt, back-patch and pin badge packages.

Electric Wizard release “Time To Die” title and cover art

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, July 1, 2014 at 8:14 AM (PST)

Dorian Gray wants to cheat death and live longer or better, like many a Faustian protagonist. Hero or anti-hero, it stems as much from fear of death as a genuine excitement to not want to lose all of life’s fleeting, delectable pleasure. Gray’s appetite for sensuality and experience was a bottomless well. The charm of life frozen as passing moments in time is ironically also part of the fuel that keeps the lamp fire burning, our souls the brief candle we don’t want to see snuffed out.

Electric Wizard have announced Time to Die as the title of their forthcoming studio album.  These guys/gal know that the best thing to do is  be thankful for what you’ve got and worked hard for, while knowing that potency of riffage is better than grasping at futility.

Time to Die is the eighth full-length offering from the masters of aural punishment and is testament to the fact that Electric Wizard continue to be the most uncompromisingly heavy, genuinely twisted and evil band in the world.

This will be the band’s first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.

Says Electric Wizard founding member, Jus Oborn:

“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 belief 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.”

The artwork, once again created by Oborn, is an extension of that theme; this is further solidified by the LP gatefold image, which will be revealed soon.

Electric Wizard, having just played Hellfest in France, have the following festival appearances lined up for 2014, with more shows to be added:

July 3     Roskilde, Denmark     Roskilde Festival (Arena Stage)
July 4     Knebworth Park, UK     Sonisphere (Stage headline)
August 16     London, UK     Jabberwocky (The Excel Centre)
September 12     Valada, Portugal     Reverence Valada (headline w/Hawkwind)
October 10 – 12     Antwerp, Belgium     Desert Fest

Random Metal Shit Monday: Heavy Metal Jesus

Posted by JDKleinhans on Monday, April 9, 2012 at 10:00 PM (PST)

A good Monday to all my fellow heathens and cretins out there and welcome to Random Metal Shit Monday. This is the place where you come to get your metal fix and laugh, scream, cry, punch away the dreariness that is the dreaded Monday.

Today’s randomness is in honor of the most honored and epic of liches, Jesus. No zombie Jesus here. He was a lich damnit! In honor of his lichness we bring you two videos of varying taste. One a piece of sludgy goodness that quotes from the New Testament and the other a statement done in the form of epic power metal.

Today’s RMSM is brought to you by the letter “L”, because JESUS WAS A FUCKING LICH!

Come get some!
