➤ Electric Wizard
Often referred to as the "heaviest band in the universe," England's Electric Wizard have consistently redefined the preconceived thresholds of a de-tuned guitar chord with their peerless doom metal achievements -- this despite an often interpersonally troubled, if musically triumphant, career. Formed in darkest Dorset by vocalist/guitarist Justin Oborn (previous with Lords of Putrefaction), bassists Tim Bagshaw, and drummed Mark Greening, and initially known as Thy Grief Eternal (briefer still, simply Eternal), Electric Wizard made their debut with 1993's "Demon Lung" single -- a split release with fellow doomster Our Haunted Kingdom (who later evolved into Orange Goblin). Released by Cathedral linchpin Lee Dorrian's doom-specialized Rise Above Records, the single paved the way for electric Wizard's eponymous debut a year later, and, although it didn't quite revolutionize the genre (Actually, it contained pretty standard doom fare for the time), the album still made for a rather impressive start.
