Anger Management: Cathedral

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

We check in with all things heavy on RTRFM’s Critical Mass show.

British doom godfathers Cathedral are calling it a day. Their twenty three year career will end with their final opus The Last Spire, in which the band returns to their roots and eschews the seventies prog sounds of 2010’s double album The Guessing Game.

Lead and final single “Tower Of Silence” crawls along with a groovy riff and pounding drums, topped off with a killer psyched out solo. Lee Dorian’s vocals and lyrics seemingly addressing the band’s demise, singing “there is no place for me”.

The video is fantastically cheesy, with a nod to the Hammer Horror movies. Check for a cameo from Purson’s Rosalie Cunningham, perhaps a symbolic passing of the torch?
