Cathedral - The Garden Of Unearthly Delights 2-LP (Clear/Black Splatter vinyl)


Here's an album that I never thought I'd hear. Cathedral has never been so angry, harsh, rough and creative.

This album is very much an opposite to VII:th Coming, which was accessible and easy to get into (melodic and groovy riffs). This one took a while to get into because of it's harshness. The casual listener need not bother with this one (well, do it anyway). There's some experimental parts in the songs that adds enormous contrast to the material as well as some acoustic parts, female vocals, strings etc. without it turning into power metal. The whole album have two sides to it, and the songs are ordered perfectly. The first half of the album is alternating on harsh vs smooth (sort of).
