About "Dopethrone"

Dopethrone is a doom metal album by the British band Electric Wizard. It was released on September 25, 2000 by Rise Above Records. Following the release and tour of their previous studio album Come My Fanatics... the group was asked by Rise Above owner Lee Dorian to create a follow-up. Vocalist/guitarist Jus Oborn has stated that drug issues and other personal problems lead to Dopethrone being a "difficult process to make". The group would enter Chuckalumba Studios in May 2000 with only three tracks written: "Dopethrone", "Funeralopolis" and "We Hate You". The album was recorded in three days with members of the group disagreeing during the mixing sessions on how the overall record should sound.

The album was released on September 25, 2000. The group went on tour with Sons of Otis in England, as well as touring in Europe and for the group's first time, in the United States. The album was released to positive reviews from Exclaim!, CMJ New Music Monthly, and The Village Voice. Retrospective reviews had continued to be positive with Decibel placing the album on their list of "Top 20 Stoner Rock Albums of All Time" in September 2007, while Terrorizer declared Dopethrone the album of the decade.
