Reverend Bizarre – HARBINGER OF METAL EP (Spinefarm)

This album was released on 5th of January 2004, featuring 7 tracks, 74.00 min long of grave Doom Metal, played in the old style which was popular 20 years ago. The atmosphere is depressed and gloomy. I have found melodious songs and some aggressive ones; 4 extremely long tracks and 3 short ones. This CD remainds  me of bands like  Solitude Aeturnus, Cathedral, Black Sabbath. I guess this will be a revelation for Doom Metal fans!

Entwine – DiEversity (Spinefarm)

The Finnish gothic metal group Entwine has traveled a long way from their first death metal demo tapes to the present gothic. After two years of waiting, they’ve released this new album, with a very emotional feeling, cool and refreshing sound, nice voice. If you like Gothic without keys, you’ll be disappointed; but the atmosphere created is something special. Nothing was left out. From your first look at the front cover, you’ll guess that it’s a gothic album/band. You can’t get anything better than this!
