Reverend (2)

Profile:
A defunct American speed, thrash and power metal band from Seattle, Washington. They formed sometime in early 1989. David Wayne just left Metal Church shortly before this band was assembled. Most of the earliest band members, were recruited from a Los Angeles power metal act named Heretic. Heretic's then singer Mike Howe, took over vocal duties in Metal Church. The original or early years of the band lasted until 1993. The band later reunited in 1998 and lasted until their disbandment in 2010. Original vocalist David Wayne died after sustaining severe injuries after a traffic accident in 2005. The band continued on with different vocalists, though no more original studio recordings ever surfaced after 2001. In 2015, there was news that an unreleased 1993 album featuring David Wayne resurfaced from the vaults. This was confirmed by remaining band members, though only one master cassette copy is said to exist of the album.

Great! Yes, now Reverend's Self-Titled debut EP (1989) and their last officially known studio record "Play God" (1991) have been added. By the way, "Big News Flash!" there was a never released album from 1993 that has recently surfaced as ...well, acknowledged! It was entitled "The Spirit Remains". See it here for yourself:

All featured the late David Wayne (Ex-Metal Church). David formed the band shortly after his departure from Metal Church. He recruited three members from a rather obscure Los Angeles based act Heretic. Last major release by them was their really good "A Gathering Of Demons" EP (2001) also with Wayne (lead vocals). Sadly he passed on in 2005. R.I.P. Dave, you are missed man.
