It's impossible not to rule when a band can release a seventy minute album, call it an EP, and get away with it scott-free.
Harbinger of Metal is a suitable name here, as the Finnish kings of doom summon monolithic slabs of metal; songs such as "Strange Horizon" and "The Wandering Jew" are oppressive in their heaviness, rarely ever letting up the intensity. Reverend Bizarre also mix it up with drum solos ("From the Void") and even muted ambience. Want to feel like you're in a capsized Titanic? Listen to the band's excellent rendition of Burzum's "Dunkelheit," an exercise in depressive metal that would make Varg Vikernes piss his pants.
