YMMV / Electric Wizard

  • Awesome Music: Lots of it. Come My Fanatics..., Dopethrone, and Witchcult Today stand out as particularly strong releases.
  • Epic Riff: "Dunwich" has an absolutely crushing, bluesy one as its component hook. Other good examples include "Behemoth," "Electric Wizard," "Wizard in Black," "Funeralopolis," and "Dopethrone."
  • Hype Backlash: Dopethrone gets this by newer fans. It's been praised so much as to overshadow the rest of their career, being criticized for being disjointed and meandering even by Doom standards, united by its incredibly dense sound.
  • Narm: The lyrics of "Satanic Rites of Drugula" are Nightmare Retardant at its finest, though it's made a bit more creepy once you find out its Fridge Horror — it's about a man artificially transformed into a beast by his master / mistress, the latter of whom injects their victims with dope before his / her subject kills them.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The lyrics of "I, the Witchfinder".
    • Best if we not forget the lyrics to this song, either.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: Some parts of "Dopethrone" sound like Black Sabbath's "Iron Man."
    • More recently, they've adopted part of the main riff of "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" to "Black Mass."
      • Both of these come as a surprise to absolutely no one since there isn't a single stoner metal band that hasn't in some way influenced by Black Sabbath. Not to mention that their very name is a mishmash of two Black Sabbath song titles, so they're pretty much lampshading it.
