The Business of Hip-Hop & Opinions on Electric Wizard and Corinne Bailey Rae

Electric Wizard Dopethrone

Electric Wizard, the self-proclaimed“heaviest band in the universe,”has a new album out called Black Masses. Over the past decade, the British stoner metal act has undergone a lot of lineup changes. They‘ve also picked up the pace a bit on their sludgy rhythms. There’s still a lot of heaviness and distortion, according to Greg, but the new album sounds more mainstream and less distinctive. There are a handful of classic Electric Wizard tracks, so he says Burn It. Jim agrees; if you only own one record by the band, and you should, go with Dopethrone. He gives Black Masses a Burn It rating.
