Reverend Bizarre. Hailing from Finland Reverend Bizarre can be mentioned as one of the most popular Doom Metal acts of today. From their debut demo "Slice of Doom" until their latest album "II: Crushing The Insects" they have managed to built a cult status around their name thanks to that special kind of mystical, haunted Doom Metal that they play, to their lyrics and to their specific points of view about the Doom Metal scene. Their debut album "In The Rectory Of The Bizarre Reverend" was a real shock for all those Doom Metal maniacs all around the world. As the time is passing by, Reverend Bizarre keep on spreading the curse of True Doom Metal through various releases. A journey to the magic, mystical, gardens of Doom, in the middle of ceremonies to never sleeping gods, inspired by the flame of the ancient ones (Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Witchfinder General, Saint Vitus, Candlemass), by the strength of fire and the touch of steel the spirit remains alive and even more heavier. This is the music of Reverend Bizarre and this is their first ever time in Greece for two unforgettable shows in the name of DOOM. Do not miss it.

The stage is the physical place for Violet Vortex, they have done countless shows having played with many great bands (Cathedral, Witchcraft and many others).
