The dons of the London stoner scene. Real as can be, singer Ben can be seen at just about every London rock and metal gig going, and always has been. Everyone's had a good time with Ben somewhere along the line, they're all legends.
The singer is AWESOME, I bet women get pregnant just listening to him! I'm so not a fan of the "muppet with PMS" school of metal singing, even though it can be okay sometimes, like with Cirith Ungol, or the "scrotum challenged" thin high pitched squealing school of metal singing, though it can also be good, too, like with the Zep and Rush.

EDIT2: I'm also one of those people who think that Electric Wizard are way overrated. They're very good, sure, but IMO there are bands who do more interesting things with the doom genre than them.

Currently? Absolutely. They've gone full on 70's worship and the most recent stuff is bland as hell. But everything up to and including Witchcult Today? Totally worth listening to.

I got chucked out of a doom fan page on Facebook for expressing said views.

Amusingly not before one of their ex-members had agreed, haha!

As said, yes they're real.
I saw them 19 years ago for the first time (they had 2 guitars) and I met my wife in 2006 at one of their shows, so the're quite important for me :D
