Electric Wizard @ All Tomorrow's Parties

In the vein of finally finishing the Chris Hakius interview, I'm finally going to finish this goddamn review of Electric Wizard. In the world of doom metal, Electric Wizard needs no introduction. If you read this blog you know them already. Seriously, their self-given title of "heaviest band in the universe" probably isn't a lie (unless there's some super gnarly heshers hanging out on fucking Pluto or something). While I wasn't lucky enough to get to properly interview the dudes, I did get to spend a little bit of time shooting the shit with Justin, Justin, Liz, and Taz. While they are all super chill people, they really come into their own on stage.

Looking over the schedule for ATP I saw that EW was going to be on the first night (my second night in the country) and I felt like a kid on Christmas eve. They haven't played a US gig in a crazy long time and since then they've put out a fuck ton of great albums, so I was stoked on having some war stories to bring back to the states. War stories would definitely be an apt term to describe the experience of seeing the Wizard in person.
