Formed in Grimsby, surrounded by the smell of fish and decaying docks, we crafted our first EP in November 2015, with a mix of classic 70s hard rock, elements of modern heavy metal and doom. In 2017 we parted ways with our drummer and bassist and went on a quiet period of searching new members while writing new riffs. In 2018 we welcomed Richard "Oz" Osbourne on Bass and Martin Ellis on Drums, with a fresh perspective, we wrote more and more songs and adjusted some our older ones whilst still retaining the sound that inspired us.
2019 has seen us begin to go back out playing live shows across the country playing with well established artists to great reception. Electric Priestess has been praised for its' solid grooves and atmospheric performances and look to take it to greater heights.
Sometimes bands are just made for the boogie. Now Grimsby might not be the centre of the stoner rock universe, but it has produced one of the most exciting bands we've heard for a while.
When something as cool (we're talking sunglasses, flares and cheap tabs cool here) lands, you can just feel the groove (as Lee Dorrian so famously shrieked in a camp voice on Midnight Mountain).
Electric Priestess have proved an engaging live prospect, but this EP shows just what's going on at another level. The feel here is Sabbath, Leafhound, Witchcraft and a more restrained Cathedral at their most stoner rock, but Electric Priestess kind of spur you on to believe that stoner is far from dead. The wave of bands that sound like Kyuss seems to have slowly dissipated (20 years later) and we're so glad the trend has reverted to Sabbath worship and, shockingly, originality.

Electric Priestess’s self-titled demo is out for the masses to enjoy. The five-piece comes a rockin' to us from Grimsby, UK with their brand of doom rock. What's great about hearing something for the first time is the unknown. So I'm waiting for the vocals. Ok , there's Danny Vain singing his heart out on the self-titled cut. The dude rocks. I can only describe him as pure early seventies. Listen and you'll see what I mean. The rest of the band rocks hard on the song as well. There is plenty of fuzz and heavy drumming to go around.
