4.0 out of 5 stars from a citizen of Funeralopolis Dec 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
"When you get into one of these groups, there's only a couple of
ways you can get out. One, is death; the other, is mental institutions."
Absolutely awesome doom, and I'm not even a doom fan...at least not until I heard this! The album kicks in with the hypnotic bashing of Vinum Sabbathi, veering off into the three part solar psychedelia of "Weird Tales"--one of the best tracks on the CD, besides "I, the Witchfinder." I recommend this highly. It's unfortunate that their latest album, "Let us Prey" is so substandard--in general and in comparison-- to the mighty DOPETHRONE. DOPETHRONE is dynamic, creative, and focused. And, if you listen closely, you can hear a bong gurgling under the maelstrom of guitar/drums/bass.
"You see man as a rather dismal creature." "Yes. Why not? Look around...you'll see what's there. Fear, and frightened people who kill what they can't understand."
Yes. The musical equivalent of Eldritch horror.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums I've ever heard. Nov. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
I was praticing with my band one day and after the pratice, we went for a ride. Our bassist later on put on a mixlist of his mp3s. One song was a long bass-heavy slow song, but with Radiohead ambiences. I asked, "Who is this?" It turned out to be Electric Wizard, and the song was Barbarian. After downloading several of their songs from the website, I ordered a copy for myself.
This is the best stoner metal album ever. Everything is long and thick and heavy, and druggy. Just what a stoner metal band should sound like. Every song is a classic. "Vinum Sabbathi" and "Barbarian" are slow heavy groove songs with some great production. "We Hate You" could be the single off the album, but it's too good for radio. The real fine work off the album are the REALLY long songs that are 10-15 minutes.
"Weird Tales" is the first big song, and my favorite song off the album. There are 3 parts, one is very groove heavy, the 2nd part a lot slower, and the third part the heaviest thing ever recorded on tape. "I, The Witchfinder" is another great epic, with the longest ending ever. Jus Oborn's vocals are just awesome. There's a great effect on his vocals that makes it another instrument, instead of being up and front, like a lot of bands. Then, there's the really cool "Dopethrone," which, despite saying it's 20:48, is actually 10:26. It's still cool though. It's like a longer version of "Barbarian." This is a great album with some unforgettable riffs. Get it as soon as possible if you're a true heavy metal fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Someone open a window, and let some air in here. March 11 2001
Format:Audio CD
If they could bottle this stuff, it would taste like bong water. A close friend of mine, who knows that I'm into early Celtic Frost, Venom, and Black Sabbath, gave me Dopethrone and said I'd LOVE it. He couldn't have been more wrong!
I hate giving bad reviews because I understand that for every album out there; there's a following of people who get alot of enjoyment out of whatever it is they're into. I respect the other reviewers of this CD for finding some quality in this music, my friend gives the same reasons why he finds it so groundbreaking, but I just can't agree.
It's like Electric Wizard, Orange Goblin, Goatsnake, and the rest of these stoner-metal bands got the idea that because Sabbath's "Sweet Leaf" and "The Wizard" are such great songs, let's do more songs just like them, but have an ultra-raw sound via no production whatsoever.
IMO these bands are for people who keep a tray under their couch, and like to spend all of their free time in a coma.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sludge taken to extremes.... Sept. 11 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
My first reaction to this when I put it on (bought without hearing first), was to laugh. I couldn't believe the sound that was coming out of my speakers. Imagine the cheapest, [...] transister radio, turned up way too loud, then amplify that sound,beef up the bottom end, and uh yeah now you have the guitar sound. I should state for the record (no pun intended) that I am not strictly a doom, or even metal fan exclusively. I tend to go with whatever rattles my chain, whatever "genre" it comes from. And as I listened with awe, my chain did indeed rattle (as did my fillings). The songs improve as the CD crawls onward,,,, and onward. As a non partaker of drugs, I don't enjoy all stoner bands, but the ones i enjoy, I LOVE. It just has to stand alone without chemical enhancement. So I have to say this definitely ROCKS. It's just that it rocks like a Brontosaurus on Mogadon. So by all means buy, but don't take it too seriously, and laugh along as your stereo self distructs!

5.0 out of 5 stars can you dig it? Feb. 20 2001
Format:Audio CD
first of all, this isn't for everyone. if you don't like to space out while you rock out, stay away from this one. it's the best for layin back and going absolutly out of your mind.
with ample spacey sounds that blows your mind, and some riffs that will DEFINITLY destroy any speakers that aren't of high quality, these guys put you into a groove like nothing i've heard before.
you gotta be in the mood for it, but when it works, it really works. somehow i can fall asleep to this. also, the riff in Funeralopolis is quite possibly the coolest thing i've ever heard in my life....definitly worth the price of the album just for that one riff. so if you dig the doom, pick this up. if you've stumbled here from kyuss or something, make sure you want to go slow and low. then pick this baby up. good stuff. very good.
