Excellant sludge/doom metal band. If anybody in the forum likes them then discuss. I've got a question to all those knowledgeable about this band, what tuning do they usually play in, because i've been thinking about covering some of the bands material, particularly Funeropolis.

Fucking ACE band. I have all their albums. And if you're gonna play in Funeralopolis, the tuning is B standard, although the guitars didn't realy sound tuned well on a lot of their songs. That is a fucking sweet song to cover man, even my band is doing that lol.

One of the best doom bands around at the moment. Come my Fanatics, Dopethrone and We Live are all essential IMO.
I love how they can go from tripped out to totaly crushing in the blink of an eye, the start of Funeralopolis is a great example of this.
Plus, Liz is hot .

I have yet to check them out, even though I've heard very good things about them.

Great band. Dopethrone is a fooking brilliant album. Saw them live with Cathedral once too, but there set was pretty short (it was like 4 songs ), but good nonetheless. Funeralopolis and I, Witchfinder are their best songs IMO. Damn menacing doom.

The only song I like so far is Return Trip. Man, that is some heavy sh*t.

Greatest band to ever exsist. Supercoven is an amazing song. As is the entire Dopethrone album, and Return trip. I love Jus' voice and all the muffled-ness and distortion they use on them. Sounds so ****in sweet. Does any one know if they're coming to the states ever? I will drive like 8 hours for that ****.

I got all my Electric Wizard stuff signed when they visited my record store. Needless to say, they were ****ed off their faces.

I wouldn't call Sabbath doom per say. They have doom songs, no doubt but they weren't a doom band.


Who likes Wizards first album? Its a bit of a cleaner, more riff-oriented sound than Come my Fanatics and later. Lot of Sleep/Sabbath influnece (as in all their work but more noticably here)
