From Roadburn.com:
Electric Wizard's gigantic riffs crash down like an avalanche, sweeping masses of headbangers along on a euphoric wave of oblivion. Their horror film fixation and psychedelic tendencies are completely in tune with Roadburn and their music is loved by all who come to our festival, so it makes perfect sense that Jus Oborn will be the next in the select group of curators that includes David Tibet, Neurosis, Tom Gabriel Warrior, Sunn 0))), and Voivod. In addition to Jus curating, Electric Wizard will be bringing their live show to Roadburn on Friday, April 19th, 2013.

Jus also shared these thoughts regarding the event "I am planning the ultimate ELECTRIC ACID ORGY...its gonna be sick...only the heaviest, most evil drugmetal possible and we will bring our mind altering light show and visuals.

Now if this doesn't burst your stoned skulls, we're proudly present The Electric Grindhouse Cinema, a 12 hour trawl through the abyss of 70s exploitation cinema... when cinema was still considered art and art meant tits & ass to the grindhouse cinemas of the 70s", says Jus Oborn, "Dirty sleazepit theatres in 42nd street NY, Soho, Copenhagen, Paris, SF, etc and across the world started out by showing 'arthouse' films with an emphasis on sex and / or violence but by the 70s this had devolved into pure sex and violence epics."

"Any film with the right ingredients could make money on the thriving underground circuit and some directors used this breeding ground to explore their own cinematic obsessions... Jess Franco, Jean Rollin etc... and some just sunk to the bottom for money, money, money...Harry Novak, 42nd street S&M etc.....either way they got darker, sicker, more depraved, shocking and sleazy. They have a primal roar that is unique compared to modern cinema . They are harsh, violent and evil like early Sabbath, Stooges, Pentagram, etc etc. We have handpicked from our personal collection a eclectic selection of obscure oddities."

"The grimmest blackest nightmares of a disenchanted era. Also we have special performances from similar darkminded souls...We are proud to present a special performance by Void Ov Voices (Attila Csihar) invoking unholy incantations with voice and audio manipulation over Horror / exploitations darkest jewels."

"Shazzula will perform cosmic rituals to the drugcrazed and depraved 'midnight' cinema when only druggies and maniacs remained. Aderlating will improvise audio atrocities in front of a specially selected compilation of the sleaziest and grotesque loops from New York and Denmark, films funded by shadowy satanic organisations and grim underworld crime syndicates.... and we have a performance by Nicklas Barker (My Brother the Wind) whose improvisations invoke the sleazy horrotica of the Euro Grindhouse factories."

Having Jus team with Roadburn to present this special event is a perfect match. Electric Wizard has been a leading force in Stoner / Psychedelic / Doom music for the past 19 years. Over that time they have released classic abums like the incomparable Come My Fanatics... and the legendary Dopethrone. Electric Wizard are one of the instantly recognizable names of the modern doom scene and have influenced countless bands to take up the doom mantle.

Their riffs are impossible to forget and their records are endlessly listenable. It's no overstatement to say that Electric Wizard is synonymous with modern doom music and they are a huge inspiration for the Roadburn festival's existence.
