Electric Wizard have today announced 'Time To Die' as the title of their forthcoming studio album; 'Time To Die' is the eighth full-length offering from the masters of aural punishment, and is testament to the fact that Electric 'fucking' Wizard continue to be the most uncompromisingly heavy, genuinely twisted and evil band in the world.
This will be their first album release since signing a worldwide deal with Spinefarm Records.
Says EW founding member, Jus Oborn: "All of our albums in the past have had a theme - revenge, drugs, black magick - and the theme of this one is death. Of course, death to us really means rebirth, so this album is a manifestation of a very primal occult belief in the final sacrifice. We have gone full circle - it was inevitable, but we had to do it. We had to kill the band so we could be reborn. It was the only way to ensure we could come back even stronger."

The artwork, once again created by Oborn, is an extension of the theme; this is further solidified by the LP gatefold image, to be revealed at a later date.
