Malo opsirnije:

 

Veteran British doom/stoner band CATHEDRAL will release its ninth full-length album and second for the Nuclear Blast label, "The Guessing Game", on March 26 in Europe and on April 20 in North America.

 

Produced once again by Warren Riker (DOWN, CROWBAR), who also took care of the band's last effort, "The Garden Of Unearthly Delights", in 2005, "The Guessing Game" is one wild and unpredictable ride with one of the most unique and exciting acts the metal genre has got to offer! For the first time in the band's history, they have recorded a double album that boasts thirteen tracks offering a colourful variety of musical styles and lyrical themes: "Requiem For The Voiceless", for example, is pure, down 'n' out crawling doom — and the first animal-rights song in doom metal history! Then you'll get classic stomping and grooving CATHEDRAL material with the catchy "Painting In The Dark", plus many songs wading through psychedelic and proggy waters — especially "Funeral Of Dreams", featuring none other than Alison O' Donnell of MELLOW CANDLE ('70s Irish folk rock band) fame doing guest vocals.

 

It comes as no surprise that this time around CATHEDRAL went as far as to include exotic instrumentation such as Mellotron and Sitar. And pay special attention to the lyrics of "Journeys Into Jade": Lee Dorrian and Co. are celebrating 20 years of CATHEDRAL with this one!

 

And what a way to celebrate this anniversary: traditional CATHEDRAL cover artist Dave Patchett came up with one of his finest artworks in the band's history, mirroring the themes and musical quirkiness of the album itself.

 

"The Guessing Game" track listing:

 

Disc One:

 

01. Immaculate Misconception

02. Funeral Of Dreams

03. Painting In The Dark

04. Death Of An Anarchist

05. The Guessing Game

06. Edwige's Eyes

07. Cats, Incense, Candles & Wine

 

Disc Two:

 

01. One Dimensional People

02. Casket Chasers

03. La Noche Del Buque Maldito (aka Ghost Ship Of The Blind Dead)

04. The Running Man

05. Requiem For The Voiceless

06. Journeys Into Jad

Jedan jako dugačak review:

http://www.stonerrock.com/forums2/allposts.asp?Forum=ap809241559&ID=48822&StartAt=0

 

Evo jednog zanimljivog dela:

 

Cathedral have managed to harness the epic without having to make a 25-minute song. The album itself, which, again, somehow works, has a flow from one track to the next that simultaneously allows for the changes in approach and makes them cohesive. I think we knew coming into this record that Cathedral were going to go for something big, but with The Guessing Game, they surpass anything that could have reasonably been expected of them and deliver to all sides of their fanbase with a single record. Those looking for something far out will revel in “Funeral of Dreams,” “Cats, Incense, Candles and Wine” and “The Running Man,” while those with an ear for the straightforward dig on “Edwige’s Eyes,” “Casket Chasers” and “La Noche del Buque Maldito (AKA Ghost Ship of the Blind Dead),” leaving “Requiem for the Voiceless” to the doom heads begging for everything to be played at half-speed. And how do they cap it off? With a thanks to everyone who’s made the trip along with them.

Prvo mi je album bio smor, ali malo sam mu dao šansi i polako ga shvatam. Najveći problem je dužina - smtram da je bespotrebno urađen dupli. Mogli su sesti, probrati najbolje ideje i napraviti ubicu, ovako se menjaju odlični momenti sa delovima za instant zaborav sve vreme, ali ipak može neka osmica da se navuče.

 

Ponovo me nervira produkcija!!

 

Slažem se.
