Stream ELECTRIC WIZARD’s “SadioWitch”

After a five-year trip (trip, not trip), Electric Wizard have apparently run out of hallucinogenics and decided it’s about time to reclaim the dopethrone of stoner/doom metal via Time to Die, their eighth studio album set for release on September 29 via Spinefarm Records.

Fans of the band/drugs/murder have probably already heard and very much enjoyed their first single, I Am Nothing. Now we get to hear a new one.

“SadioWitch,” which is pretty up-tempo by Electric Wizard standards, kicks off with a single guitar sputtering thick fuzz. Once the drums are introduced by a grumbling bass lick, you’re thrown straight into a bubbling cauldron to boil to death within the viscid broth of pure riffery. Mr. Jus Osborn does what he does best, which is moan lazily through his nose about shit that nobody knows about, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. As Electric Wizard’s shortest non-intro/interlude/outro track since Dopethrone’s “Vinum Sabbathi” in 2000, it’s short, but it rules the entire world for the duration of its four-minute run time.

I really hate to have to do this to you, but I’m going to send you over to Pitchfork to stream this, as they have the fancy exclusive. Dr. Henry Walton “Indiania” Jones, Jr. had to fly in the face of peril for his treasure. You can, too!

Time to Die

 

  • Not Vincent Bennett

    I listened to this yesterday and it was amazing. Everyone should listen to it.

  • Flushgod Apocalypse

    What a way to wake up. Dat fuzz!!

  • The Pitchfork stream isn’t working on my computer, but “I am Nothing” is some good stuff.

    • Death

      I haven’t visited Pitchfork after I saw their review of Ulver’s Perdition City.

      • Bunch of dorks over there…

        • Death

          Yeah. They even change their album reviews.

          • OH yeah! I forgot about the screw job they gave Andrew W.K’s first record. Years later they turn around and give it the credit it was so sorely due.

          • Nobody talks shit about my deity.

          • Death

            You like that thing?

          • If by “that thing” you mean the party god and all-around best human on the planet with the greatest hair and smile of all time, Andrew W.K., then yes.

          • Death

            I hate parties, so fuck that guy.

          • So do I. Party is a lifestyle, not an event. You need to learn the philosophy.

          • Death

            Oh, I’ve learned enough philosophy. That sounds like cod-philosophy.

          • Christian Molenaar
          • 1. You’re wrong and possibly dumb.

          • Christian Molenaar

            Hey, he may be wrong, but don’t call him names. This guy thinks he likes Sunn, clearly he’s taken a few wrong turns in life.

          • Nobody likes Sunn!

          • Death

            Showe a cactus up your ass.

          • Christian Molenaar

            I’ll record it while I have my friend hold a power chord for half an hour, then release it as a new Sunn album.

          • Death

            I never said that they’re great and best! I just happen to like them! They got nothing on Coil, mate!

          • Christian Molenaar

            Well, we can agree on that.

            P.S. <3 u

          • Death

            I can’t be mad at you, bae.

          • Death

            You had to go and use ad hominem? Don’t insult me!

          • Death

            They also removed the old review of In the Aeroplane Over the Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel which initially received an 8.7 and changed it to 10 after it became hipstercore album.

          • That is absurd. Especially because On Avery Island is a better album.

          • Death

            I’ve never hear on avery island. I never like in the aeroplane, it always felt boring and run-of-the-mill indie folk.

          • Christian Molenaar

            Spoiler alert: that’s exactly what it is.

          • There’s a 13 minute noise track on Avery. How could you of all people not like that?

          • Christian Molenaar

            I meant In the Aeroplane, but Pree-Sisters is the only song on that album I consider even remotely listenable and it makes me want to fall asleep. Music-you-listen-to-with-headphones-to-drown-out-your-obnoxiously-loud-neighbors-core at its finest, in good company with Sunn, Vomir and Plastic Boner Band.

          • Cock of Steele

            I think I’m gonna give Plastic Boner Band a whirl.

          • Christian Molenaar
          • Death

            Hey, I like Sunn!

          • Christian Molenaar

            Nobody likes Sunn.

          • Death

            I do.

          • Christian Molenaar

            NOBODY likes Sunn.

          • Death

            U wanna tussle mate?

          • Christian Molenaar

            I would win, because people who have tricked themselves into thinking they like Sunn are all weak nerds.

          • Fatality

          • Death

            I’m not weak! I swear, I’ll fucking move to a forest with Pentti Linkola and start writing misathropic books!

          • Death

            I knew it.

          • Sponge Of Mystery

            some fuckwad over there gave NIN’s The Fragile like, 2.5/10. It was the dumbest review i had ever read, he just went on about how much he hated NIN (he clearly has a mental condition) I’m pretty sure he didn’t even listen to the album fully

  • Electric Wizard prefers to have their Sadiowitches with the crusts cut off.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Like a sandwich! But with peanut butter and DOOM jelly!

      I suck.

  • Death

    I need to start listening to this band.

    • Cock of Steele

      I could only listen to this band for this song, back to Absu.

      • Death

        I feel like I did something good to you.

        • Cock of Steele

          Yes you did Death, not to my wallet, but to my soul.

          • Death

            I don’t belive in soulsssssssssss.

    • Sponge Of Mystery

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iY_7bOz7FAc this is my fav album by them

      • Not Vincent Bennett

        My favorite is Black Masses. I just love how it sounds.

        • Sponge Of Mystery

          i still have yet to pick that one up, from what i’ve heard i’ve loved it though

    • Howard Dean

      Listen to Come My Fanatics…, Dopethrone, and Let Us Prey first. Try not to shit yourself. Maybe try listening to Witchcult Today.

      Then listen to that unholy trinity again. Maybe wear a diaper this time.

    • Gorgasm

      The best EW there is…

      • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

        CROM APPROVES OF THIS CHOICE. ALSO LIZ IS ABOUT THE MOST BAD ASS CHICK THERE IS. Justin is a lucky guy to be married to her.

  • W.

    These guys definitely roll coal.

    • It’s kinda… dull? Are you guys all stoned this morning and I’m just missing out?

      • Not Vincent Bennett

        No. I’m speaking for myself on that, I’m not sure about anybody else.

      • Just turn it up and zone out, duuude!

        • Xan

          The best way to listen to stoner metal. Hot damn this is tasty.

      • Death

        That’s insulting me, Joe! Now I’m sad.

      • W.

        that’sthejoke.jpg Get it, rolling?

        • Just realized my first cup of coffee this morning was just hot water. 4got to add groundz. : (

          • W.

            My heart cries for you, Argentina.

          • Xan

            I have done this several times.

      • KJM

        It’s good but nothing special.

      • Randall Thor

        I haven’t listened to it, but my contacts within the stoner realm tell me they hate it

    • Death

      What does that mean? Are they slaves that are forced to work in the coal mines?

      • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

        Allow me to enlighten you

        • Death

          What?

          • CÖÄL RÖLL FRÖM THE TÖILET BÖWL

            ..

          • Death

            Can you not use pictures?

          • (hit refresh)

          • Death

            I saw the damn pictures! I want him to explain it with words!

          • Pictures tell a thousand words, Death…

          • Death

            That’s not always the case! That’s a stupid saying!

          • You’re right it is.

          • KJM

            It’s a right-wing American thing. Don’t try to understand, just know this; If US conservatives thought that drinking Cyanide would really piss off liberals, you’d see a rash of self-inflicted Cyanide poisonings.

          • Death

            Oh, now I get it.

          • JWG

            Careful. You’ll give away the secret Socialist Plot to Take Over America. First we poison their drinking water, then…

            …wait. I think we did that already. Stanley Kubrick even made a documentary about it (minus rewrite to make it ‘Russians’ and not ‘Canadians’ to make the threat seem more credible of course)…

            Never mind.

          • KJM

            I value my Purity Of Essence.

      I clean my room to EW, with my doom broom.

          • Mr. Bojangles

            why wouldn’t it be?

          • Death

            I don’t find it fun. There are zero shemales in that shit.

        • TrickleDownTacoRiff

          yea same ole same ole

          • CONAN THE MOTHERFUCKING KING

            I can’t believe they only go up to xl in the pre order bundles. That blows that out of the water for me. I have to have 2 xl, the days of xl and large are just a memory for me. The irony is justin no doubt wears s 3 xl himself ! No judgement, i am not thin either, and look at the woman he has , gives hope to all the guys that aren’t super handsome.

          • TrickleDownTacoRiff

            Yea that blows u see that more and more these days too! Im working on dropping few but it seems like some of XXLs aint XXL too! ( Red flag)!(Said the fat guy!) lol but its true some shirts are ridiculously cheap and no fucking way are they XXL.

    • Howard Dean

      Agreed, Mr. ‘jangles. I yearn for the EW days of “the heaviest band on the planet,” back when their music was bass and grit and shit-kickin’. This retro-fuzz shtick is getting really old.

      • Mr. Bojangles

        couldn’t have said it any better.

  • Superjoint Ritual is back muhfuckaaaas

    • MoshOff

      wat

      • Getting back together as “Superjoint” due to legal reasons. Will be performing at Housecore Fest.

        • MoshOff

          They couldn’t do Super Joint Ritual or some other technicality like that? That’s pretty cool though.

          • I would have preferred Super Spliff Ritual.

          • Occams_Razor_Ramon

            Superjoint Ritual BC

          • Lacertilian

            I practise daily Super Vape Rituals instead.

          • Tim Wilsön

            Super Joint Ritual A.D.

    • Cock of Steele

      Superjointritual! Superjointritual! Superjointrituak! Superjointritual!

      • Not Vincent Bennett

        I just found that out. I like them, but I can’t justify going to Texas just to see them.

  • God

    In the middle of a lake in a storm while commenting on this post. Damn technology you crazy.

    • I thought that was your son’s thing?

      • Death

        Jesus is dead, all hail Shrek!

        • Not Vincent Bennett

          Shrek is love, Shrek is life.

          • Death

            Ogres are like onions. They have layers.

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            It’s all ogre now Death.

          • Death

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            Never mind that. I’m still somewhat hung over from last night. I drank too much trying to forget what I had caused. I caused something Death, and it will haunt me forever. I wish Kevin hadn’t told me the news. I’m going to have to live with it for the rest of my life. I don’t want to bring it up here. I’ll message you what happened over Steam.

          • Death

            What happened? Tell me, it will make the pain go away!

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            I really can’t bring it up here. I really don’t want to bring it up.

          • Death

            I can’t get to my steam account for a while.

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            Well, I guess I’ll have to tell you here then. Kevin told me my ex girlfriend who I dated for two years died of a heroin overdose yesterday. We had a falling out before we graduated high school over something I can’t remember. She tried to do some damage to me and my name but to no success. I on the other hand did extensive damage to her name because people trusted me more than her. She turned to drugs because she had nowhere else to turn. Kevin told me a few years ago that someone told him she was in rehab and that person said that what I did to her caused her drug addiction. She never got cured of her addiction from what it appears. What I did has really come back to get me. She was 27. Her name was Melanie. She had blonde hair with streaks of black in it which she later dyed completely red. She wasn’t the most attractive girl, had a nice face but nothing else. She’s gone and it’s my fault. What the hell have I done?

          • Death

            It’s not your fault. She was the one that started doing drugs.

          • Not Vincent Bennett

            It is my fault though. I shouldn’t have said the things I said. I should have apologized and try to get her on the right path. Now there is nothing I can do to set things right. When Kevin heard about this he was devastated even more than I was at first. He said that him and Torrie were cutting their honeymoon short to come back here and be there for me. He wants me and him to go to her funeral on Friday. I’m not sure I can do it. I’m not sure I can go and watch someone I used to love be lowered into the ground. She started using drugs because of me. She told Kevin that directly when he found out about her addiction.

  • dingus

    sounds like drugs all right

  • FassbenderDickBlood

    This is horrible and sounds like a demo of Black Mass. Seriously, are they that lazy? There’s at least two riffs ripped off from this song. At least steal from Dopethrone…

    • Michael Assbender

      Sounds like someone needs to get bended.

  • Xan

    Holy fuck! I can feel the bass rattling my headset. Electric Wizard is the best stoner metal fan (in my opinion) and pretty much the best doom band that is currently active. I’m sorry Pallbearer.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      That’s one of the most unique-sounding bass tones I’ve heard in awhile. I’d love to know how they got that sound.

  • Wizard Aura

    Sounds like a Yidhra song
