Inspired by the likes of Saint Vitus and Cathedral, Finnish doom metal band Reverend Bizzare was founded in 1994, in the southern industrial town of Lohja by vocalist and bassist Albert Witchfinder.
Peter Vicar soon joined on guitar and the splendidly named Earl of Void had taken over on drums by the time of 1999's aptly named Slice of Doom demo. After taking part in the Doom Shall Rise tour in the winter of 2002, the band cut its celebrated first album, In the Rectory of the Bizzare Reverend. Subsequently signed to Finnish powerhouse Spikefarm, Reverend Bizzare unleashed the sophomore Harbinger of Metal in early 2004. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
