"Do you think Electric Wizard would be possible without originating in the West Country: a more pagan and ancient place than most, with a certain rural and uncanny vibe to it? JO: I think isolationism and environment are the most important. All good heavy music is cultural: a reaction. Also coming from an area with a rich history creates a sense of identity with your environment. We are proud to be from Dorset. We weren't trying to be NYHC or something like that. We are Dorset doom. Our music resonates with our surroundings, which is rural and the old forts and ancient woods are creepy and are haunted. I don't think Electric Wizard would have existed in a larger urban environment. We needed to be isolated to create this sound.", The Quietus, Janeiro 2014.
