Sure, they pack plenty of volume as well, but none of it could possibly work without the band's uncompromising worship of weed and all things gothic and malevolent.
After a long hiatus during which they were no doubt traveling the cosmos without ever leaving their parent's basements or putting down their bongsElectric Wizard finally returned to action in the year The resulting dirge masterpiece, Dopethronedelivers walls of sound so dense that at first they seem too big to fit into your ears.
At a paltry three minutes, the opener "Vinum Sabbathi" may be the Wizards' first true candidate for an actual "single," but it really serves as a teaser for what's to come.
Introduced by short spoken intros taken from Dopethrone - Electric Wizard - Dopethrone a la White Zombieextended riff-monsters like "Funeralopolis," "I, the Witchfinder," and the three-part colossus "Weird Tales" are vintage Electric Wizard. Though they never exceed a snail's pace, they somehow manage to build in intensity, from single note guitar lines to huge power chords with deliberate, maddening certainty.
First-time listeners will find it easier to cope with more compact offerings like "Barbarian" and "We Hate You," but with time, they'll see the light and embrace the obscenely heavy title track, with its patented "Iron Man" oscillating riff. In short, with DopethroneElectric Wizard has raised the bar for doom metal achievement in the new millennium -- good luck to the competition.
