Album of the Day: Electric Wizard – Time To Die

Posted on Sunday, September 28th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from 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.

Electric Wizard - Time To Die

Longtime drummer Mark Greening, who had left to form Ramesses many years ago, rejoined Electric Wizard long enough to record Time to Die. But the volatile relationship fractured and Greening was unceremoniously replaced by Simon Poole.

On the business end, they ended their relationship with their former record label and are releasing Time To Die on their own Witchfinder Records (distributed by Spinefarm).

But we’re not here for the drama, we’re here for the music. Evil, loud, dark and frightening music. Time to Die is not a departure from the band’s modus operandi, but Burgess and Greening do shade the corners with a different hue of cruelty and menace.

Album of the Day: The Osiris Club – The Blazing World

Posted on Friday, June 13th, 2014

Lovingly pinched from Ave Noctum: Well the PR sheet tries to chuck the kitchen sink at this when describing it, but with people who have played with Angel Witch and Electric Wizard you would be forgiven for expecting some groovy seventies / eighties downtuned riffage, yeah? Ah… Nah. Though the […]

Album of the day: Serpentine Path – Serpentine Path

Posted on Saturday, September 1st, 2012

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 […]

Posted on Thursday, May 19th, 2011

This blog has been written to upset you. “OMFG! He’s compiled a list of the world’s heaviest albums and not included ‘Necrotic Wolf Enslavement’ by Crepuscular Molestation Cauldron!”, “No ‘Massive Fucking Apocalypse’ by Cataclysmic Death Flange – no credibility!” Don’t worry that the concept of heaviness in any kind of […]
