From the very first few notes, that fall down soft as raindrops introducing the epic opener and title track of their debut, THE ORDER OF ISRAFEL totally caught me. As the softness vanished to give way to their heavy, slow and massive riffage, the foursome takes no prisoners. They just play Doom at its best!

If you expect this first effort to be repetitive, monotonous or sounding like so many other bands, you couldn’t be further from the truth – from the uptempo second track ‘On Black Wings, A Demon’, the fierce yet sluggish hypnotic hymn ‘The Noctuus’ to the promising invocation and final song ‘Morning Sun (Satanas)’, “Wisdom” contains an incredible variety and versatility of sound. Some to bang your head to, some to kneel down hailing the Lord Almighty – guess Tony Iommi will take this place for all disciple of Doom – and some to just have a good time rocking. Fronter Tom Sutton (best known for his previous activity in Japanese Doomsters CHURCH OF MISERY and his current Classic Hard Rock outlet, Swedish Rockers HORISONT) does not only contribute his six-string skills, but also proves to be one hell of a vocalist.

Apart from the four chapters of “Wisdom” one can enjoy both on Vinyl and CD, THE ORDER OF ISRAFEL is a pure live experience! So do yourself a favour and convince yourself that Napalm Records made the damn right choice by offering these guys a deal!
