Reverend Bizarre - In The Rectory Of The Bizarre Reverend

In my opinion, the debut album of these slow-paced Finnish folks still remains their best album. Don't ask me why, because it doesn't sound terribly much different from "Harbinger Of Metal". It's slow, very slow and adjuratory, but the songs have simply found a place in my heart and refuse to leave. Originally, REVEREND BIZARRE had only formed so they could play their favourite songs by the big Doom bands. Gradually, they did some song writing of their own, which is in no way inferior to that of the "greats". Better yet said debut album by this trio is considered one of the most important and best Doom Metal releases in recent times among scene circles and rightfully so.


These mesmerizing tracks, three of which exceed the ten minute mark and one of which even is longer than twenty minutes, are going to send pleasant shivers down your spine. This stuff is definitely not suited for hectic or hyperactive of SAINT VITUS or PENTAGRAM are going to be jubilant if they don't yet own this album an album which is simply unique in its heaviness, gloominess and sadness.
