Electric Wizard - Electric Wizard
Artist: Electric Wizard
Album: Electric Wizard
Genre: Stoner Doom Metal
Year: 1995 (this is the 2006 re-issue)
Electric Wizard is often named as the best that doom metal has to offer. And I can't really say I disagree; this is some really heavy, primo metal music. Jus Oborn is the main man behind Electric Wizard, doing guitars and vocals (and as far as I know the song-writing as well) for this album. I think Electric Wizard reached higher peaks, in particular with Dopethrone, though this is still one of the better doom metal albums I think I've heard. This re-issue includes two bonus tracks which were taken from the Doom Chapter demo.
