CATHEDRAL “The Garden Of Unearthly Delight” /Digipack CD/



Remastered-release of the eighth full-length album by the legendary British Doom/Stoner Metal band.
A few years after the release of "The VIIth Coming" this album shows Cathedral much more focused and taking things back a few steps towards their mid-era Stoner material. This album isn't full on Stoner Rock though and comes across pretty damn dark and heavy. Really it is a mix of the best moments of their generally recognized glory era. To put it simply this album is full of heavy riffs, catchy grooves, and plenty of the dark/twisted atmosphere that Cathedral is best known for.
From Hard hitters like "Oro The Manslayer" and "The Tree Of Life & Death" to the Heavy Stoner grooves of "North Berwick Witch Trials" and "Corpsecyle" this album just succeeds in all forms. There should be something for fans of any era of the band really and the always inventive band adds their own touch to this one as well. Check out the creepy as f**k little girl chant in "Beneath A Funeral Sun" for some evil sounding sh*t and the constantly shapeshifting, 27 minute, "The Garden" for some guest female vocals and a pretty different Cathedral song.
In summation... this album destroys! If Black Sabbath x100 on the heaviness and evil sounds good to you then you need this!! Recommend to anyone who likes darker Metal as this isn't your typical slow Doom nor is it the standard Fuzzy Stoner band. This is just unique, heavy as hell asskicking!!!
