Electric Wizard is an amazing band. My first album by them was Witchcult Today. After I heard that, I was immediately hooked. Electric Wizard combined crushingly heavy, brutally slow riffs, with eerie, hollow vocals. “How could it get better?”, I thought.
I had just discovered the “doom” sub-genre of metal, and was ready for more. From Witchcult Today, I purchased another Electric Wizard album, “Come My Fanatics…”. I think I’ll start by saying this: Come My Fanatics… is better than Witchcult Today, and that is an accomplishment in itself.
Come My Fanatics… is still the same thing. Tuned down guitars, horror themes, and long, slow songs.
I just felt that Come My Fanatics… showcases the style better.
