NOW PLAYING: Electric Wizard, ‘Black Masses’

The Artist/Album: Electric Wizard, Black Masses (Rise Above, 2010)

A Short Review: Campy cover art and B-movie song titles (“Scorpio Curse,” “Crypt of Drugula,” “Patterns of Evil”) aside, Electric Wizard’s seventh album goes great lengths to retain the group’s “heaviest band in the universe” title. Succumb to its spell and you will be rewarded with a record that’d make even Ian MacKaye feel stoned.
