Reverend Bizarre was a doom metal band from Finland.
They played slow and heavy traditional doom with
dramatic vocals, following in the footsteps of bands
such as Saint Vitus, Pentagram and Black Sabbath.
The band was one of the biggest names in the fourth
wave of traditional doom metal.
According to Albert Witchfinder, the band had
planned three more full-length albums: Songs from
the Funereal World, Heavier Than Life and How It Was
Meant to Be, but this plan was later scrapped and
the band made only one more LP, disbanding Reverend
Bizarre “before it started to suck.” The album, III
So Long Suckers, was recorded in the first half of
2007, and released in August of that year. The
band’s last concerts were played during the autumn
and winter of 2006 culminating in a final
performance in Turku.
Two of the band’s EPs, Harbinger of Metal and Return
to the Rectory, actually exceed sixty minutes in
Since their disbanding, Albert Witchfinder had a new
band called The Puritan, as well as a solo project
called Opium Warlords, and Peter Vicar founded a new
band called Lord Vicar. Both of them released
(alongside original material) songs originally meant
for Reverend Bizarre and that were to appear on
future two albums which were never released.
Furthermore, all three members of Reverend Bizarre
continue doing music together in Orne (originally
known as Mesmer), Vicar’s old school progressive
rock band in which Void plays the drums. Albert
Witchfinder has appeared on vocals on both Orne
full-lengths, the 2006 debut “The Conjuration by the
Fire” and the 2011 second album “The Tree of Life”.
