Remember my first time listening to Electric Wizard’s Come My Fanatics… album. Was just blown away by the mixture of the heaviness of the guitar riffs and psychedelic solos. Dopethrone album has to be one of the meanest of all time. You can feel the hatred and anger being vented through the heavy riffwork. This shit’s heavier than any type of metal, in my opinion, and now I’ve been converted into a sucker for the slow guitar riff, and not complainin
Priceless and one of my fave Electric Wizard live recordings when it was just Jus, Greening, and Bagshaw. I think they broke up shortly after this show. There are too many highlights in this video. Tim looks like he’s wasted and drops his bass at one point, Part of Mark’s drum set breaks in the middle of supercoven and Jus, not realizing it at first goes into the next section of the song and finally realizes and just looks back at Mark lookin super pissed off! hahaha! doesn’t try to help. Then some rando in the audience tries to help Mark and spills beer over some of Jus’s papers, then Bagshaw fuckin smokebombs, just takes off, and Jus has to jam with some random bassist. Best part at the end when Jus is like “If anyone sees our bassist tonight on the streets, please, kick his fucking ass.”
I have 218 followers. Not quite sure why 218 people think my Tumblr is interesting, but whatever….
One of you has to know what makes the bass tone in “…Come, My Fanatics” and “Dopethrone” so crushing. Anyone?
Edit: By all accounts, it seems like the entire band was using Boss Hyperfuzzes. There is some weird warbling “drowning in space” sound that kicks in over the FZ-2 from time to time that I can’t wrap my head around, still.
Thanks @stationlost. I hadn’t considered the FZ-2 on bass. Didn’t think Boss boxes had the lows in them.
