Anathema - Distant Satellites CD
Anathema’s career over their twenty four year existence has taken them through several stylistic shifts. From their gloomy death/doom metal beginnings, through the angsty emotional rock of their middle albums, they’ve arrived at a style seeing them combine progressive rock with a dense uplifting atmosphere in this decade starting with 2010′s brilliant We’re Here Because We’re Here and 2012′s Weather Systems. After two decades, they seem to have found the style which really suits them best, and they’ve been making the best music of their career to date. And their ninth full length, the new album Distant Satellites sees them expand on this sound, and they’ve followed up with yet another stunning album.
