Happy new year, assholes! May 2008 be as rockin' as 2007.
Too much festivities this time of year. Too much glitz. I feel an urge to bring the mood down with some good ol' doom and gloom. Cathedral's second album The Ethereal Mirror may not be as a heavy and bleak and crushing as its predecessor Forest Of Equilibrium, but it definitely has its moments.
On a few songs, like Midnight Mountain, we hear traces of the groovier, catchier route Cathedral would take on their next few albums. My favorite tracks though tend to be the slow-ass grinding doom monsters I offer you to download here today: Enter The Worms and Phantasmagoria (which, apparently, has lyrics completely improvised by singer Lee Dorrian).
Doom or be doomed!
(mp3) Cathedral - Phantasmagoria (highly recommended!)
