Electric Wizard - Dopethrone 2LP
Rise Above Records
After four years of self imposed exile from the scene (drug abuse, arson, robbery and near death experiences), the most intense stoner sludge band in the world returned with some of their heaviest most acid drenched, yet accessible, and diverse material to date, 2000's Dopethrone! Electric Wizard draw you further into their bizarre and paranoid world of 70's exploitation movies, immense marijuana abuse, combined with the shitty reality of unemployment and crime. The frustration and anger of detachment is magnified and echoed so perversely loud into the void of life outside. The Wizard drone reflects the blind drudgery of a day to day futile existence, where nothing is questioned, only accepted. No frilly 70's rock cop-out here, but the real f***ing deal - dark, oppressive, hallucinatory and 1000% heavy!
