  • Anathema & Antimatter

    anyone?

    just thought some here might like those two great bands from Liverpool!
    It's not like they sound dredg alike, but i think they have the abillity to create similar deep feelings like dredg.
    So if anyone is interested to check them out, here is the opportunity:

    Anathema:

    (for a quick listen)

    http://www.anathema.ws/ (for some more information)

    Antimatter:


    (for a quick listen)

    www.antimatter.tk (for a deeper insight and some free stuff)

    Comments are appreciated! Maybe we get a discussion going....

    I'm with you here. I've been in love with these bands, especially Anathema, for many years. A Fine Day to Exit is in my top 5 albums of all time.

          Nice one! I'm really glad for the lads that they get an opportunity like that. Been a while since they had a full tour in the US. In fact I'm not sure they ever did one to such an extent.

                    Re: Anathema & Antimatter

                    Ok, Antiverse asked for some old Anthema stuff. There you go:

                    Basically you have 3 periods. The first was the Doom Death Metal period in the early 90's with Darren White at vocals (growls and Sprechgesang mostly).
                    Here a couple of examples:

                    From the 'Crestfallen EP':
                    Crestfallen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tI-KCk9HSU

                    Sweet Tears (from the 1st album Serenades):
                    Promo for Sweet Tears taken from the Serenades album, on Peaceville Records, released in 1993.Buy Anathema albums from the Peaceville store: burningshed.com/...


                    and the cult song 'Sleepless': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxY1B8mdGuA

                    Kingdom (Pentecost 3 EP): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrYRSXpIknE

                    2nd period would be with DarrenWhite leaving the band and Vincent Cavanagh taking over the vocals (still some growls at first later only clean) additonally to playing the rhythm guitar. Plus, and more importantly, Duncan Patterson writing more and more songs for the band and arranging stuff:

                    3 examples:

                    From the 2nd album 'The Silent Enigma':
                    A Dying Wish: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJT4y0Oa180

                    From the 3rd album 'Eternity':
                    Eternity part I: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jF9klwct9_0

                    From the 4th album 'Alternative 4':
                    'Fragile Dreams': http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CsHYSvlsDWw

                    You can see a clear progression from the Doom Metal period to a more melodic and mellow doom rock whatever one may wanna call it. Already Pink Floyd influences recognisable.
                    After Alternative 4 Duncan Patterson left the band (a lot of shit was going on in those days between some of the members and others...) and basically Danny Cavanagh, who already wrote a lot of song before hand, but now was basically the songwriter in the band. This kinda starts the 3rd period which brought in more of a progressive edge to the band (still very much Pink Floyd influenced but also others):

                    3 examples:

                    From 'Judgement':
                    One Last Goodbye: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xs-emvLUY20

                    From 'A Fine Day to Exit':
                    Temporary Peace: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ao05BM9Wvs

                    From 'A Natural Disaster':
                    Flying: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13nYeV_4TyY

                    After 'A Natural Disaster' it took the band to release 'We're here because we're here' 7 years.

                    Hope that gives you a bit of an insight into their past.

                      Thank you kindly, I'm going to start listening now! Would you call their old stuff 'good' or was the change in musical styles wholly welcome in your eyes?

                        Re: Anathema & Antimatter

                        Well, it's a matter of taste obviously. If you like growls and and rather slow melancholic atmospheres than yeah i think it's great actually. The lads, along with Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride are still seen as the 'Big Three' of Doom Gothic Metal who in the UK because they sort of made it 'popular' back then.
                        As for the change, it's difficult for me to say, because my music taste sort of changed along with them. But i guess i am glad they changed and progressed because that keeps em still interesting, while there's so many bands who had 2 or 3 solid albums in the 90's but never progressed to sth new and thus became rather boring. Or like My Dying Bride changed and then got back to their roots, also because fans hated the change. But anyway, I am glad Anathema changed into what they are now, simply because I like the music. Of course there were things that should have gone different, like the Duncan Patterson conflict and some other stuff, but you know, musically i like where they are.

                            Anathema's new record could be called "Distant Satellites"


                            and it's looking to come out in May.

                              yepp, it could be a hint to the title of the new album. Interestingly, they're currently mixing the album, while touring the US simultaneously. Here's an interesting interview with Vinny: http://metalassault.com/Interviews/2...-touring-more/
