Cathedral To Release Two CD Live Album "Anniversary"

In conjunction with Rise Above Records, Metal Blade will be releasing the double-disc live album "Anniversary" from UK mainstays and international cult act CATHEDRAL. Set for release on Monday, November 21st in North America, "Anniversary" captures CATHEDRAL in all their raw and live glory and marks the first official live album to be ever released by the doom metal legends. Recorded live in London, 2010, Disc 1 features "Forest of Equilibrium" in its entirety, delivered impeccably by the original lineup of Lee Dorrian on vocals, Garry Jennings and Adam Lehan on guitar, Mark Griffiths on bass and Mike Smail on drums. Disc 2 is a greatest hits set courtesy of the long lasting lineup featuring Leo Smee (bass) and Brian Dixon (drums) alongside Dorrian and Jennings.

Vocalist Lee Dorrian comments on the band’s first ever live album and the impending final live show: “The release of 'Anniversary' is both exciting and sad for us. Exciting, as it is the first ever official CATHEDRAL live album, recorded at our twentieth anniversary show on Dec 3rd in London last year, where we reunited with our original line up and performed the entirety of or debut album 'Forest of Equilibrium' for the first (and last) time ever. Sad, because December the 3rd this year will be the night we perform our last show ever, before calling it a day as a live band. So more than anything, we would like to dedicate 'Anniversary' to everyone who has followed and supported Cathedral over the years. Your support really means and has meant the world to us – thanks and stay heavy!
