Considered by many to literally be The Heaviest Band In The World, Electric Wizard is more like a cult than a band. The Wizard conjure up visions of Alistair Crowley having a black trip with HP Lovecraft, whilst gazing at the most far out biker flicks ever created. This, combined with the crustiest gravity defying Doom riffs and drones, Electric Wizard have one mission: To Destroy! Plastic Head.

Funeralopolis is one of the Wizards best riffs and is so poundingly brilliant that I would class it as one of my favourite all time riffs. It's so slow, but head-bangingly great and the vocals slash through the song with real passion. The rest follow suit in what can only be the best drug-fuelled metal album ever released (Sleep's Holy Mountain is a very close second though).
There have been plenty of bands that have supped from the Sabbath font, some come away sounding too much like the band (Sleep, Saint Vitus), however others have branched off enough to keep the spirit but remain unique. Wizard fall into that category, and Dopethrone is their masterpiece.
Recommended to anyone who loves metal. This is a great album and will open you up to so many other good doom/stoner bands out there.
As I said though, purchase the original CD pressing as the remastered versions all sound terrible. The mastering is so in the red it makes listening to on headphones unbearble and ruins the true heaviness of this album.
