Electric Wizard are a doom band from Dorset, England which formed in 1993. Among the more popular bands from their genre, they have a distinct yet still traditional doom metal sound with stoner and sludge references at times. During 2003, founding members Tim Bagshaw and Mark Greening left Electric Wizard to form their own band, Ramesses. Electric Wizard are currently signed to Rise Above Records.
