"Electric Wizard is my favorite band. They write some killer songs, they have some great riffs, and of course, the songs are strectched out to infinity. So, I decided to get this E.P. last. I heard it was good, but not great.Track 1, Supercoven, is the best thing on the album. 13 minutes of pure doom with a weird echoed guitar in the beginning. The riffs are really good, and the playing is top notch. Jus's singing is really strong in this song.Track 2, Burnout, on the other hand, didn't do it for me. IT started out real good, then about 6 minutes, it starts to get really boring. I was hoping for a slower, more doomy section, but it just turned into a noise-fest. It gets old after a while. Track 3, Wizards Of Gore, is an interesting one. Recorded in 1993, it shows the band before they got a record deal. It's good for a histroical note, but it sounds too much like Saint Vitus, which I never liked. There is the riff from Return Trip in there, however. That's ok.Track 4, Electric Wizard (live), is the other good song. IT is a live version done in Holland in 1998. It sounds rawer, and has more of a Come My Fanatics sound to it. It really shows the power of the Wizard live. This E.P. has about 2 good songs. So, if you're into what Electric Wizard sounded like before the 1st album, or if you're into Saint Vitus, check it out. For diehard fans only."
