Justin "Jus" Oborn is the lead vocalist, guitarist and lyricist of Electric Wizard, an English doom metal band from Dorset. Prior to forming Electric Wizard, Oborn was a member of the band Lord of Putrefaction, which changed its name to Thy Grief Eternal and then to Eternal.
Oborn formed Electric Wizard in 1993. He has been the band's frontman since that time. They have released nine albums since 1995.
In early 2003, Bagshaw and Greening left the band, making Oborn the only founding member remaining. Later in that year, Oborn gathered a new line-up for the band – which included his wife, Liz Buckingham, as second guitarist. She has remained part of the band ever since, with she and Oborn both handling guitar duties on Electric Wizard's more recent releases.
During 1988, Jus Oborn formed the doom metal band Lord of Putrefaction, they recorded two demos. The band then changed its name to Thy Grief Eternal and recorded the On Blackened Wings demo.
