Cathedral Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Once you get past the pretty horrendous artwork you’ll find that Cathedral’s 2006 LP The Garden Of Unearthly Delights is another doom metal masterpiece from Lee Dorrian and company. The fantastic production from Warren Riker balances out the band’s bottom-heavy riffage with Dorrian's super-clear vocal takes. There are some cracking choruses on this thing too.

The album has stood the test of time as a fine example of doom metal. Reissue LP on Earache.
‘In Memorium’ is an underground doom metal classic documenting one of the most influential bands of the nineties at a time when they were first discovering their explorative feet, carving out their unique voice through a host of rich influences. Long out of print, this limited edition double LP features a bonus rare and previously unseen live performance from 1991.

And so the long and distinguished career of Cathedral draws to a close. The Last Spire is to be the band’s farewell LP, but as one might expect the group are not going gentle into that good night. This lot are one of British doom metal’s most prominent voices, after all. Track titles like ‘Entrance To Hell’ and ‘Cathedral Of The Damned’ set the tone for a wracked, sulphurous record.
