CATHEDRAL - The Guessing Game


Product Description

The band was founded in 1989 by Lee Dorrian (former singer of grindcore pioneers Napalm Death), Mark 'Griff' Griffiths (a Carcass roadie) and Garry 'Gaz' Jennings (formerly of thrash metal upstarts Acid Reign). At first they played very heavy and slow doom metal that was first released through Rise Above Records, vocalist Lee Dorrian's indie label, before signing to Earache. They later incorporated elements of progressive rock into their sound when the band signed to Columbia Records in the USA in 1992 (while still under contract with Earache U.K.). They were later dropped by Columbia Records in 1994. The band continued with Earache Records until 2000. Then signed to Dream Catcher Records for one lp and a tour. In 2004 Cathedral signed to their current label Nuclear Blast. After no news from the band since they toured for The Garden of Unearthly Delights, they played their first show in two years at Damnation Festival 2008, in Leeds. They played a new song and have confirmed dates for 2009 including Hellfest. In October 2009, it was revealed that the band were planning to enter the studio the next month to record a new album entitled, "The Guessing Game”. The album will now be released in March of 2010 and it is one great piece of Doom Metal music. Cathedral prove once again that they belong to sit on the Doom Metal Olympus alongside other genre gods like Candlemass. DISC 1: 01. Immaculate Misconception 02. Funeral Of Dreams 03.
