I would imagine that Lord Vicar is relatively unheard of is because it is relatively generic and uncommunicative. This album came out the same year as Pagan Altar's. Pagan Altar eclipses this work, so it's not suprising that this was looked over.

I thought that Pagan Altar album was ok, but nothing special.

And I don't know about you, but over the course of a year, I think most people can just about handle listening to more than one album from the same genre and enjoying them both.

edit: what are you on about, pagan alters latest release was 06, or 07 with the split, Fear No Pain came out in 08.

I agree. I feel that both aren't anything special.

With bands like Yob and Eyehategod, and recently Divine Eve it's easy to forget about this less than stellar release.

Pagan Altars releases get better and better, even if they are 30 years old

I fail to see how you can really talk about Lord Vicar and YOB and EHG as if they are similar bands musically.


They all are variations on doom. You can hear the blatant sabbath worship in Eyehategod. I would dare say that YOB, EHG and Divine Eve provide more than Lord Vicar because they have taken the blueprint and expanded upon it. Whereas Lord Vicar is a bland continuation of outdated ideas. IF they (he) had provided us with something more engaging (like the modern underground Incantation worship for example), it would be entirely forgivable and worthy of praise.

Whilst I adore Pagan Altar...you cant really compare the two albums man. Pagan Altar sound like noone else , while Lord Vicar are a Sabbath/early Trouble mix. I think 'Fear No Pain' is an excellent release. Missed their gigs here on account of me being a complete workaholic.

I want to try that while playing the opening riff to "Tempting Time".

0-0-0-13-0-0-0-0-13 or something like that alalalala but It;s so heavy and off time and awesome and you could not f**k anyone to it.

so if anyone fancies some doom today, there you go.

Lord Vicar is one of those bands where the execution exceeds the originality

I downloaded it. First impression: This is pretty good, but The Puritan is clearly the superior Rev Biz side project, with Orne close behind.

That's absolutely cracking. I'm going to get some popcorn in for The Lamp of Thoth and hook the laptop up to the telly.

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.
#15
Ive been watching it all so far, and its pretty good, except the audio (which I must say is very good quality for a live stream) is ever so slightly ahead of the video. But its not terrible.
But seeing as it is essentially a free concert I can't really complain.

Fair enough, but I'm not counting them because they didn't form because Rev Biz broke up.

I'm highly fond of The Demon Of Freedom EP as well, easily on a par with the album


Been watching that live stream thingy for a while now, Iron Void were great
Asomvel and especially Lamp Of Thoth should be awesome, unfortunately have to go to sleep before Lord Vicar

Great band,i love the demo.Really cool vibe they got going on,and the guitar solos are fantastic!

Acid probably makes you feel less like a hedonistic raver piece of trash, too.

Not nearly enough love for the band in this thread... I've grown to love Fear No Pain more than assorted bits of the Rev, even, that's how good it is.

Christian is no competition for Mr Witchfinder, of course, but his vocals have a very distinctly amateurish quality that makes them so charming, coupled with heaps of conviction... not to mention the songs themselves, which are brilliant almost all the way through. Peter's signature guitar tone is like icing on the cake of doom.

Fear No Pain oozes with emotion. Christian's vocals, just like in Count Raven, are done with the utmost of passion and conviction (like tree said), and Peter's guitar work perfectly complements his vocals I think. The vocals and riffs alike are both drenched in sorrow and despair. I find this a very depressing (in a good way) album to listen through, and I can tell I will be coming back to this one for a very long time.

Excellent band. Keppy summed my thoughts up perfectly

I'll just go on the record and state my thoughts that "The Funeral Pyre" is the Doom "Stairway to Heaven" in a literal equalised sense. Listen and think about it for a minute.

I'm especially fond of that shamelessly psychedelic breakdown about two minutes in.

You can order the album and other assorted Lord V. stuff here.

Lord Vicar just confirmed they're supporting Pentagram in December here with none other than one Earl Of Void playing the drums.


I'm not sure if it's hoping way too much that Sami would join them and play some Reverend Bizarre songs...

I'm guessing they're getting local bands to support? Bad news for me... But who cares, it's PENTAGRAM!

Signs of Osiris is definitely one of the best albums of the year. I wish I'd found these cunts earlier.

I wish I could find a distro in the States that's selling copies of this already. From what I've heard, this will be one of the best albums I've listened to this year.
