Biography

To paraphrase Nick Drake, time has told us that Cathedral are a rare, rare find. Twenty years time, in fact, since ‘In Memoriam’ first made its crepuscular crawl towards the darker reaches of our consciousness, in which Cathedral have proved themselves to be so much more than the paragons of doom metal they originally resembled. Twenty years, in which they’ve proved ... Read more in Amazon's Cathedral Store

On this album (unsurprisingly there seventh) cathedral have basically collected everything that made there previous albums good and brought it all together. The awesome "Phoenix rising" has hints of the ethereal mirror album to it and the middle of the song "Skullflower" has such a slow riff it could be on forest of equilibrium. I feel that the greatest thing about this album is the guitar work which is amazing. The amount of showing off is kept to a minimum and there are some amazing riffs and leads (listen to "Resisting the ghost" to see what I mean). Also on this release Lee Dorrian seems to be a lot more comfortable vocally which also adds a lot to this album. This album contains (in my opinion) some of cathedrals finest work to date. I personally like the doom-rock stylings of "Resisting the ghost" along with the slow and creepy "Halo of fire".

After six albums and 10 years Cathedral finally break free of the Earache label for their 7th album. Cathedrals previous recordings can be divided neatly into different stages, from the achingly slow doom dirge early material to the more up-tempo ‘70’s rock of their later Earache output. Of all their previous albums ‘The VIIth Coming’ is closest in sound to their last album ‘Endthyme’, in that it’s something of a mixture of the two Cathedral styles, though this record probably isn’t quite as heavy as ‘Endthyme’. All the songs are top quality here, and despite the bands habit of coming up with songs that have stronger verses than choruses occasionally the material still ranks as good as anything the band have ever done, though inevitably after the amount of records Cathedral have made there is an element of familiarity breeding contempt here, and as good this album is there is really nothing on it that the band haven’t done many times before. Still, while this isn’t exactly re-inventing the band, ‘The VIIth Coming’ is still a good solid Cathedral album, and with a good mix of slow and faster material should make most fans happy.
NB: If you can afford it try getting the Japanese import version for a cracking extra instrumental track that features possibly the best guitar riff on the album.

Cathedral have come up with the goods once again, and once again, thier sound has changed. The tone of the instuments and Dorrian's voice is the same(damn good!), but the style of music differs greatly from Endtyme. As far as a doom band can be different anyway. The aggressive, depressing dirges have been replaced with shorter, punchier more upbeat(!) songs. The riffs aren't as doomy, but just as heavy. The most noticeable thing is the acoustic versed 'Aphrodite's Winter', a great song, but quite original and different.
Overall, this album is damn good, different, but still Cathedral, not as doomy, but still charateristically heavy.
They prove once again that they are at the forefront of British metal, stoner and doom, along with Orange Goblin and Electric Wizard. (and those two bands are on Dorrian's label!).
Rating; 7.5/10
