God-sized riffs and asphyxiating volume neatly sums up Electric Wizard’s sophomore album which seems to drift across a tumultous sea of fuzzy, drug-addled riffs and bass-heavy rumble.

Drawing on Hammer Horror and the occult as inspiration, Electric Wizard’s sheer riff force and fog-shrouded breathlessness created a waking nightmare that remains arguably unsurpassed in the genre.

Unfathomably slow at times and akin to chewing on the stickiest, sludgiest tobacco for all eternity, Come My Fanatics breaks the agreeable monotony on “Wizard In Black” and “Son Of Nothing“, offering a welcome break from their austere ghoulishness.

Not an easy listening by any means but Come My Fanatics remains a destructive gem from Britain’s high priests of distortion.

About Chris Jennings (1986 Articles)
I love metal. Always have. Always will. As editor of Worship Metal - a site dedicated to being as positive about metal and its myriad of sub-genres as possible - my aim is to 'worship' metal through honest reviews, current news and a wide variety of features; offering the same exposure to underground bands as we do to mainstream/well known acts. Our mantra; the bands are partners and we exist to serve the bands \m/
