Just one listen to Endtyme shows you this is Cathedral's best album for years. I wouldnt call it doom metal because it has a lot more to offer and the word doom brings to mind Cathedral's first album "The Forest Of Equilibrium" which is much gloomier. This album features some great songs, tuneful riffs and excellent vocals with some varied sections which are refreshing for this kind of music. "Requiem for the sun" and "Alchemist of sorrows" show how much Cathedral have progressed their songwriting. They should have hit singles with these modern day equivalents of war pigs, planet caravan etc.
