This is right up my alley! Love the music but also the lyrical themes on this. Any band that's got Lovecraftian lyrics have an advantage for me, probably because I'm such an HPL nut. Musically, it sounds like a fusion of Electric Wizard and Candlemass for me.

I can't say much about Reverend Bizarre, since I've never checked them out... although that might change, now. :)

Yes, Electric Wizard is another great comparison point, that fuzz floating over music is here with The Wandering Midget. Candlemass has always been more epic and powerful doom to me than this slightly stoned out affair. I am going to try and have another output by ELS label soon, Apostle of Solitude, they are a lot closer to Candlemass IMO. (Alex from the road).
