Propelled by gigantic riffs and dripping with dark, bluesy undertones, Black Masses is an ugly, sleazy and dirty album steeped in unruly themes of '70s exploitation cinema, occultism, substance abuse and narco-satanism. Taken as a whole, the record creates a twisted amalgam of late '60s dark acid psychedelia and early '80s satanic metal, all draped in both vile, misanthropic imagery and lyrics. Limited edition double gatefold colored LP with gloss spot finish.
"This ritual incantation of heavy metal sorcery will break down your psyche as wave upon crushing wave of lead weight acid-laced Doom leaves you numb and broken before our unholy altar," declared Electric Wizard cult leader Jus Oborn. "Violent, bleak and ritualistic, we bow to the black altar of the riff. We do not rock, we kill!"
"For those who crave Sabbath-like dirges, Electric Wizard has few peers." - The Chicago Tribune
