Electric Wizard - Black Masses CD


"Black Masses" marks the seventh time Electric Wizard cooked up a mean batch of grade-A weed and molded the classic doom metal pulse into obscure and ritualistic themes of drug-induced destruction from the ashes of psychedelic rock and intoxicated all-nighters. But I have to say, this band never fails to weird me out in the finest of ways. "Black Masses" sounds a trifle different than the usual upheavals summoned by Satan's favorite doomsters, but Electric Wizard is once again taking a hit from the roaring bong of eternal doom. The Brits are as distorted and honest as ever in their voyage into doom metal's wretched bowels, and the vibe echoing within the chambers of "Black Masses" is pure, natural Electric Wizard pounding the hammer of the gods on the anvil of doom.
