Electric Wizard is a British DoomMetal[=/=]StonerMetal band formed in 1993. Their style is slow, heavy and fuzzy, with lyrics typically involving marijuana, the occult, witchcraft, Creator/HPLovecraft and horror films. They are generally considered one of the major bands of the stoner metal subgenre, though they also have sludge metal traits in their more aggressive material (such as ''Dopethrone'').

Initially, the band was a power trio consisting of vocalist/guitarist Jus Oborn, bassist Tim Bagshaw and drummer Mark Greening; in 2003, the latter two members left the band, leaving Oborn to recruit a new lineup, which included his wife, Liz Buckingham, as second guitarist.

Current lineup:
* Jus Oborn - vocals, guitar
* Liz Buckingham - guitar
* Clayton Burgess - bass
* Shaun Rutter - drums

Past members:
* Rob Al-Issa bass

!!This band provides the following trope examples:
* AfterTheEnd: A common lyrical theme, usually [[EldritchAbomination unspeakable horrors]] or more cynically, [[HumansAreBastards our own destructive tendencies]] as the culprit.
* BlackMagic: Everything in "Vinum Sabbathi."
* BurnTheWitch: "I, The Witchfinder" mixes this with ColdBloodedTorture.
* CrapsackWorld: Electric Wizard albums are bleak and chaotic, with apocalyptic lyrics growled through a wall of distortion. No shortage of drugs to go around while we wait, at least.
* DoomMetal
* EldritchAbomination: The ancient Yuggoth mentioned in "Weird Tales" seems to be one of the sleeping and soon to be awoken variety.
* EpicRocking - Most of their output.
* HeavyMithril: In the midst of the omnipresent Lovecraft worship, there's the odd song on other pulp fantasy fiction with a sprinkle of horror movie soundbites.
* IAmTheBand - Jus Oborn is the sole remaining founding member of the band.
* MutuallyAssuredDestruction: Where the death world on "Funerapolis" comes from.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness - On the border between 9 and 10. Some of their ''Come My Fanatics...'' material is said to border 10 and 11, making it among the only doom metal examples to do so.
* SelfTitledAlbum - As seen above. Adding more to this example, the album has a title track (so, Electric Wizard - "Electric Wizard", from ''Electric Wizard'').
* {{Sampling}}: From Dopethrone and onward, many songs in their discography have small samples from movies or PSA's at the beginning.
* ShoutOut: Being a stoner doom band, Electric Wizard tends to have a lot of shout outs to stoner, grindhouse, and pulp fantasy fiction. "Barbarian" is a song about, you guessed it, Literature/ConanTheBarbarian. "I, The Witchfinder" is about the old movie ''Mark of the Devil''.
** The band's name comes from Music/BlackSabbath - namely, by combining two of their song titles ("''Electric'' Funeral" and "The ''Wizard''"). A further Black Sabbath ShoutOut is the cover art to the EP ''Legalise Drugs and Murder'', which looks very similar to that of Sabbath's ''Master Of Reality''.
* SignatureStyle: Loud, heavy riffs played slowly even by the genre's standards, with distorted, screamed shouts in a mix of Doom Sludge, with varying amounts of PsychedelicRock.
* StartMyOwn: Tim Bagshaw and Serpentine Path. And Ramesses, which also featured Mark Greening. Subverted with Burgess and Satan's Satyrs, as the latter was around well before he joined Electric Wizard.
* TitleDrop - Partial drop of the band name, from the very start of ''Barbarian'', ''"the wizaaard!"''.
* TropeCodifier: For sludgy, stoner-influenced DoomMetal. Indeed, it's all but impossible to find a fan of the above genres that hasn't at least listened to more than one of their albums.
