Artist: Electric Wizard
Title: Legalise Drugs And Murder
Label: Rise Above Records
So here it is, the first taste of the upcoming Electric Wizard album, i don’t know if there have been any release date set for the album yet, but as far as i know this is the first single in a series of singles to come before the album is released. On “Legalise drugs and murder” the band continue in the same typ of doom they have been known for and i don’t think any Electric Wizard fan will be disappointed after listening to this tune.
The B side is a really interesting track i think, it’s an instrumental song called “Murder and madness” wich sound alot like something that the italian prog-rock band Goblin could have done, and since i love their work i was pleasantly suprised when i heard it, it’s really creepy.
I really like the coverart also, wich is a rip-off of the Black Sabbath album Master Of Reality if someone didn’t know that, just brilliant! The single was first released on clear vinyl in 800 copes and sold exclusively on the bands show at The Forum in London. The second run was pressed on 800 copies purple vinyl and a regular not-limited edition on black vinyl.
Side A: Legalise drugs and murder
Side B: Murder and madness
Here you can listen to Electric Wizard’s first single Legalise Drugs And Murder off their coming, yet untitled, album wich will be out sometime 2012. The single was first sold exclusively on the bands show at The Forum in London, England on clear vinyl in 800 copies. There will also be a second limited run of 800 copies on purple vinyl and a regular black vinyl edition released soon.

With 2011 soon in the reviewmirror it’s time to look forward into 2012 and see what records we can expect in the next year. I think that 2011 have been a very good year recordwise, and lot’s and lot’s of cool albums and singles have seen the light of day. I will most likely publish a top-10 of 2011 later on.
