Electric Wizard Witchcult Today on Colored 2LP
Witchcult Today is the sixth album by the British doom metal band Electric Wizard. It was recorded entirely on vintage 1970's equipment at Toe Rag Studios and was originally released in November of 2007. The sound of Witchcult Today is less harsh than preceding albums and Jus Oborn's vocals are much more prominent. Upon its release, Witchcult Today was the band's most well-received album.
The band's fascination with horror movies and writers continues here with "Satanic Rites of Drugula," a reference to the Hammer Studios horror film of the same name and "Dunwich," a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's short story The Dunwich Horror, while "Black Magic Rituals & Perversions" makes reference to the Jean Rollins film Le Frisson des Vampires (Shiver of the Vampires and to Italian comic book character Zora the Vampire. The album cover of Witchcult Today was edited from the poster for The Devil Rides Out. Colored 2LP set from Metal Blade Records.
