Punishingly heavy, cleaner vocals is a + - 90%

returntrip, July 19th, 2004

Ok, I'm surely a "fan" reviewing this new CD by Electric Wiz. I was hoping on this new one that the vocals would be more on the clean side, basically less distorted. yay, my wish came true. Aside from that though the riffs on this album are very heavy, and perhaps even more haunting then on the previous releases. The drums show great strength here. They are very present and make the album more of a crusher for sure. All in all...all the songs on this CD crush/kill/rock. The new lineup is quite exciting to say the least, and the artwork for this album is just great. If I had to pick a favorite song off WE LIVE I'd say it was Another Perfect Day?. It has a few elements in it that I don't think Electric Wizard has jumped into thus far. It has some stoner "rockish" moments, other than being the slow and heavy daze Electric Wizard has been known to be masters at in the past. If you're a fan of Stoner/Doom/Sludge I totally recommend this album. EKKOOO EKKOOO AZARAK!!!
