Electric Wizard – Black Masses (2010)

When it first came out, it took me a while to get used to the sound on Black Masses. The entire thing sounds like it was recorded in a wind tunnel. It wasn’t until I heard a vinyl press over at a friend’s house, that it made a little more sense to me. Granted, it still sounds a bit hollow, even on IEM earpieces, but there are some great songs here. Try to listen to “Venus In Furs” without hearing “my penis, it burns”. There we go, I’ve ruined that song for ya. Sorry!

The art for the vinyl version is far better, I think.
