‘Reason’ was originally released by the now defunct Displeased Records in 2004 and is
considered to be the highlight of OFICIUM TRISTE’s output by many. The five songs on this
album display dark moods and outstanding melodies. The album has been out of print for a
while now and is now reissued as a digipack with additional liner notes from vocalist Pim
Blankenstein (also in The 11th Hour)
Officium Triste means something like a sad service, referring to a funeral. OFFICUIM TRISTE
is influenced by (old) Paradise Lost, Anathema, My Dying Bride, Katatonia, Celestial Season
and Chorus of Ruin. Dutch doom / death metal deluxe!
