** ELECTRIC WIZARD** have announced Time to Die as the title of their forthcoming studio album. Time to Die is the eighth full-length offering from these doom staples.
This will be the band’s first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.
Says ELECTRIC WIZARD founding member, Jus Oborn:
“All of our albums in the past have had a theme – revenge, drugs, black magick – and the theme of this one is death. Of course, death to us really means rebirth, so this album is a manifestation of a very primal occult belief in the final sacrifice. We have gone full circle – it was inevitable, but we had to do it. We had to kill the band so we could be reborn. It was the only way to ensure we could come back even stronger.”
The artwork, once again created by Oborn, is an extension of that theme; this is further solidified by the LP gatefold image, which will be revealed soon.
Here is the band performing “Funeralopolis” at Hellfest Open Air 2014 last month in France:
