Supercoven is a two song EP by the doom metal band Electric Wizard. It was originally released on CD and 12" vinyl in 1998 through Bad Acid Records. In 2000 it was re-released on CD through Southern Lord Records with two extra songs. The production on the extra songs is rougher. Track three is from a 1994 demo and track four is from a show in Netherlands during August 1996.
