Lovingly pinched from About.com: Heavy Metal: It’s been four years since the mighty Electric Wizard brewed up a full-length album in Black Masses. As the Wiz’s devoted fan base awaited their return in the form of new album Time to Die, the band itself took on a different form.
Jus Oborn and Liz Buckingham remain the core of the stoner doom outfit, but found a new bassist in Clayton Burgess of Satan’s Satyrs, an American in his early 20s no less! That development is far less dramatic than the situation behind the kit and on the business side.

Lovingly pinched from Pitchfork: Sometimes the “featuring ex-members of” tag can be misleading, but in the case of Serpentine Path, pedigree is important. The band, which debuted in February on a self-titled 7″, includes the entirety of Unearthly Trance, a Brooklyn-via-Long Island trio that issued a string of harrowing, unpredictable […]
