Electric Wizard is steeped in the mythology of 1970s fringe culture. The country town of Dorset, where they formed in 1993, is as quiet as any American suburb, leaving the druggy members of Electric Wizard to make their own fun. Horror comics, Italian giallo films, the phantasmagorical fiction of Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, and the doom-laden heavy blues of Black Sabbath all helped form their sound and worldview. On murky, monolithic albums like DOPETHRONE and WITCHCULT TODAY, they explore the dark side in all of its bad trippy particulars.
