5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Heaviest Sounds Around 4 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
"When you get into one of these bands, there's only a couple of ways out-death, or a mental institution..." The intro to this CD sets the scene for an onslaught of bass, feedback and torpid mayhem. I wasn't hugely impressed on the first couple of listens, but that's usually a good sign as far as I'm concerned and, sure enough, the tunes (no that's not a typo) started to emerge. I've had the chorus to 'Vinum Sabbathi' lodged in my brain for the last week. The rest of the album has a similar delayed reaction, even the initially annoyingly protracted third song becomes worthwhile. As an established stoner fan, Electric Wizard to me are the masters of crafting head-crushing and enduring soundscapes out of deceptively simple musical components......

5.0 out of 5 stars Cripplingly Heavy 14 Aug 2007
By Ed
Format:Audio CD
This is a monumental release from Electric Wizard, by far their finest work and one of the high points of the whole doom metal genre and metal in the 21st century.

Musically 'Dopethrone' occupies a sort of middle ground between doom bands who just try to sound like Black Sabbath e.g. Witchfinder General and the bands who tend to see just who slow they can play and how long their songs can be (e.g. Khanate). Because of this 'Dopethrone' is pushing the boundaries of the genre but not without influence of classic metal bands.

The first thing which struck me about this album was the crushingly dense guitar sound that sounds as if its coming from a tube amp pushed to melting point which is pretty much the polar opposite of the standard polished lifeless modern metal sound. Musically, it's hard to tell whether Electric Wizard can actually play or not, but all things considered I don't care whether they can because this album is about atmosphere, and it has it in spades, so whether or not Jus Oborn can sweep pick is irrelevant. For instance 'Funeralopolis' has a wonderful bluesy atmosphere (think Blue Cheer blues not B.B. King) that matches the apocalyptic images of the lyrics very well.

Lyrically, this album shifts from themes of drugs (really? I thought these boys had nothing stronger than a pint of bitter), general hatred to all humanity ('We Hate You') and more fantasy themed lyrics inspired by the likes of Robert E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft, which makes for a lyrically varied listen. Also of note is the very loose jamming feel dominant throughout the album that is evident in the albums shortest track 'Hills Have Eyes' which is just a short jam and in a lesser record could be considered filler but it somehow forms a integral part of the record.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the heaviest album Ive ever heard and also one of the best! I got into The Wizard through this album, and along with Come my Fanatics and Let Us Prey, this is their best work. SOOOOO Evil! Soooo sinister! Sooo Slow!!! Theres not enough good things to say about this band. If, like me you love Horror Movies, Black Sabbath and pure drop tuned sludge stoner rock....buy this record! You may end up playing it FAR more than you imagined. Its inspiring to hear a band who can be as overwhelmingly claustrophobic and frightening and at the same time be so chilled out and soothing! Hail!

As I said though, purchase the original CD pressing as the remastered versions all sound terrible. The mastering is so in the red it makes listening to on headphones unbearble and ruins the true heaviness of this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snail paced Doom from a misty forest 20 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
It’s a wonder this great British Stoner/Doom metal act haven’t embedded themselves deeper into the mainstream music scene, as I think they are the kind of kick up the backside music in this country needs. With gut crunching slow-mo guitar work, thumping sub-bass and devastating grove drum patterns, this power-combo pack a punch. If you like you metal to hark back to the glory days of ‘Sleep’ this album (or any Electric Wizard album for that matter) is a must.
With near all the tracks being standout the album has a pace and tone to it that transports you to a dark and beautiful place, with Jus Oborn and Tim Bagshaw’s spiralling riffs and finger work begging the listener to stand up and pay attention.
I can recommend no other Electric Wizard album higher.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate doom album? 30 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Heavy, heavy, heavy; this is the album you want if that's what you're looking for. From pseudo-accessible opener Vinum Sabbathi to the crushing final track Mind Transferral this album is a dark masterpiece of modern music. Thunderous guitar, pounding drums and gargantuan bass tunes all combine with heavily distorted vocals to produce a uniquely awesome experience, an epic journey carried out at snails pace. "I, the Witchfinder" could well be the best track in this genre yet, and that's saying something. Pure class that needs to be bought.
You also get 9 minute bonus track Mind Transeffal with this, a great jam session that really is very good. It brings the album length to 75 mins, a hefty slab of music indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars pray at the alter of the riff 23 Jun 2007
Format:Audio CD
Electric Wizard have always been held in high esteem in the doom rock, down tuned corner of the music world. They are often heralded as the ambassadors of doom rock and Dopethrone is widely regarded as their master piece. A flawless album of staggeringly heavy and hypnotic grooves, peppered with b-movie samples and drenched in dark, psychedelic atmospheric effects. It is hard to believe a three piece band could achieve such an overwhelming sound whilst maintaining a blues like groove that is quite accessible to fans of less extreme music. The lyrical content is intriguingly derivative of H.P Lovecraft literature, occult worship and horror movies. This brilliant album is untheatrically dark, mindalteringly trippy and severely heavy. Highly recommended.
