Anathema – The Crestfallen (EP)
Liverpool’s Anathema, started out in the early ’90s as strictly a doom metal outfit, with the requisite growled vocals and the trademark muddy sound, but when original singer Darren White left the band in 1995, with guitarist Vincent Cavanagh taking the reins, Anathema started their slow journey into completely uncharted (and unexpected) territory. In fact, Anathema’s metamorphosis over the past decade is one of the most remarkable band transformations in recent memory, as album after album has sounded more and more progressive and melodic, in no small part fueled by Cavanagh’s superb singing voice. The Crestfallen is a demo EP, the first official release in Anathema’s discography, and this re-issue includes the song “They Die” which was left out from the initial release.
