Through a haze of ever bleaker dopesmoke, black titans of underground doom, Electric Wizard, rise from the unholy grave once again!
Riding a black wave of success since the release of ‘Witchcult Today’ in 2007 Electric Wizard have played sold out shows across Europe, Scandinavia, the UK and Japan, thrilling audiences with their incendiary and apocalyptic live performances. Culminating in near iconic status amongst true fanatics and devotees of HEAVY music!!
And now they offer you their greatest work and bleakest art : ‘Black Masses’.
From the psychedelic swamp of the ravens they summon 8 hymns of pulsating necrodoom, an unbelievable wizards brew of early acid rock psychedelia, 70s heavy metal and 80s satanic metal, distilled through endless loops of exploitation horror cinema…
“Holy mind-altering DOOM!!! Permanent Brain Damage was originally recorded in 1991 as an album-length demo tape, and is considered to be among the great rare “grails” of sludge-doom a la Saint Vitus. The influences of Sabbath et. al. are all over this disc, but no band I’ve heard sounds quite like the Blood Farmers. The songwriting is very creative and bizarre, never straying into any standard formula. Very dark, brilliant work from guitarist Dave Depraved…VERY intense, angry and wild in the tradition of Dave Chandler or Greg Ginn. I highly recommend Permanent Brain Damage to all fans of Vitus, Sleep, Church of Misery and of course, the Blood Farmers’ favorite subject: weird ’70s horror movies.”

Blood Farmers named themselves after the 1972 grindhouse classic “Invasion of the Blood Farmers”
Add to Black Pyramid´s sonic brew of classic doom, perfectly executed forays into vintage psych and progressive rock, along with the apocalyptic lyrical ravings about war, the occult, and general alienation, and you’ve got an accurate picture of what the band is all about. Prepare to be crushed by the weight of the Black Pyramid.
