Anathema Judgement on Limited Edition 180g LP + CD
Newly Remastered & Available on Vinyl in the U.S. for the Very First Time!
Anathema formed in the early-90s in Liverpool, England, initially under the name of Pagan Angel and grew from a heavy doom/death metal style act into a more progressive and melodic group, blending rock elements with strong atmospherics inspired by classic acts such as Pink Floyd and Radiohead. The band signed with Peaceville Records after recording the All Faith Is Lost demo in 1991, and are known for being part of the Peaceville doom metal trinity in the early 1990’s (alongside fellow UK bands Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride).
Judgement is Anathema's fifth album, originally released in 1999. It was recorded at Damage Inc Studios in Italy with Kit Woolven producing. Judgement is a largely rock-inspired album, whilst still retaining traces of the band's more metallic roots along with the Pink Floyd and also Jeff Buckley influences. Judgement consists of more streamlined and polished compositions than on earlier releases, such as the classic rock opener "Deep," as well as Anathema's burgeoning talent for slower, more emotional and haunting epics like "One Last Goodbye."
Judgement was the first album to feature new bass player Dave Pybus (Cradle of Filth) after the departure of Duncan Patterson who was also one of the main songwriters. Guitarist Danny Cavanagh assumed songwriting duties for the album and also contributes keyboards. Upon release, Judgement was critically and commercially a great success, and is still often considered amongst the band's finest work to date.
Judgement has been newly remastered and is appearing on the vinyl format for the first time in the U.S in a limited edition 180 gram black vinyl pressing with accompanying CD insert.
