The Slow Hand of Doom! (Reverend Bizzare: Harbinger of Metal)



Fer those of you who love Sabbath, Witchfynder General, Pentagram, Cathedral & all things doom, me is proud to introduce to yer battered eardrums, the Reverend Bizzare. Hailing from the land of Sami Hyppia & with tongue lodged firmly in cheek, these long hairs like their riffs slow, sludgy & slabtastic!

No inverted crosses or black metal screeching vocals here, just lotsa of good old fashioned doom fer that 70s stoner vibe. Fook yeah, baby. Me is gonna enjoy this as me sips a cold beer or three as me is fooking off tomorrow (holiday fer Negeri Sembilan, hoo-fooking-ray)!

yes, did see electric wizard album along with the entire Sleep discography.

Go to me music links, click on metal argentina, you'll find it all there under the sub-category of 'stoner rock'.

AD: As usual me has to wait till me gets home before me checks it out... though i think this will suit me tastebuds better than Entombed.

when me got your SMS, me thought there was a latest report that Anwar has been convicted and is being dragged to jail. phew...

anfield devotee said...

achilles: That was the intention! Ha ha!

This is one band & genre that me will admit is NOT fer everyone. Super slow doom laden metal.

Bands like Sleep & Cathedral can drive you up the wall if yer mre used to rock rancak.

However, do give this a try. If it does suit yer tasetbuds, follow the instructions me gave to anba (above) & you'll find loads of doom/stoner rock bands at the site. All free fer yer listening pleasure.

Anba said...

Balaji:- Mucho Gracias...hahaha...
I guess much work wont be done this week...to many good albums to download...Fuyoo
Now all of you know why gomen workers are less productive...duduk goyang kaki download saja...heheeh

p/s:- Am thinking of naming me Doom Band... Bitchfinder General...sounds cool

Jon-C said...

Have checked out the video and i can live with this. Then again i'm never a metal head but one born out of the alternative era. Hehehehe.

anfield devotee said...

anba: Yer welcome. Do let us know which Sleep albums you would recommend. Cheers.

JonC: Pls download & let us know what ye think o the album. Music is meant to be varied mah, so one day you can robot to kraftwerk the next riff out to DOOM FOOKING DOOM!

Look forward to yer pronouncements on the Reverend Bizzare!

anfield devotee said...

anba: RE: Bitchfinder General
Bro, keep this up & yer future wifey reads all this, ye'll be naming yer band EUNUCHS INC! Ha ha!

Jon-C said...

Kraftwerk...... damn i dig their Tour De France song since i was an avid cyclist a few years back.

prem said...

Reverend Bizarre eh? They sound/look like a doom version of Spinal Tap - turning up the rawwwwkkkk up to 11!

If you guys like Sleep, Melvins and Tad then the logical progression would be High On Fire, (formed by Matt Pike of Sleep). Please give them a listen:

or here http://www.highonfire.net/

You wont regret it but your ears might!

anfield devotee said...

premo: Thanx fer the links dude. Hope you enjoy the Reverend Bizzare download as much Anba!

Anba said...

Premo :- I was just abt to mention High on Fire... it's a superb band worth checking out...
A lot of bands to download...so little time...

Balaji:-
Eunuchs Inc ...hmmm only if i let me future wifey read this...hehehe...
This blog will remain a secret.. i hope

Achilles said...

AD: i was truly mezmerised by the video and the music.. slow and but dark and if i dare say, a bit demonic as well. very very cool.... i personally feel its slightly darker than some of sabbath's stuff and the lead singer / bass guitarist... macha looks a bit psycho-lah....but i guess that just adds to the feel.

And i like the name.. sounds like a reverend who went to the other side...

Will looks out for the other bands in the similar genre as this.

PS:...is it really called stoner rock? just wondering.

Anba said...

Achilles:- Do check out Pentagram...i gotta felling you might like it...

theALBERTUS said...

Heyaall! Just want to let everyone know that there is this blues gig on July 31 at the The Laudry Bar @ The Curve @ 10pm.

Anyone you metalheads wanna go? Its called the Juke Joint Jupiter (http://www.laundrybar.net/)

and yes...i am back!

anfield devotee said...

albertus: Sorry, can't make it. Colleague's farewall bash.

Achilles: Yes, 'stoner rock' is a usual phrase used to describe these sort bands. Very glad you liked Reverend Bizzare.

Like me pointed out to Anba, you'll find plenty of similar doom band at under the music links - click metal argentina - go to the label of 'doom'& 'stoner rock'. You'll find Electric Wizard & Sleep. Other bands to watch out fer include Fu Manchu & Monster Magnet.

Did you download the Reverend Bizzare album?

Achilles said...

AD: Attempted, but as usual only got the blank screen. Dunno if there is something wrong with me PC where i am always unable to download anything. will attempt again tonight.

anfield devotee said...
