Cathedral’s 5th album – the oddly named Caravan Beyond Redemption – finds the band on great form. Still firmly in their up-tempo retro groove period, this album retains the great hooks of Supernatural Birth Machine, but re-injects some serious heaviness thanks to the super thick production by Andy Sneap. Some of the bands best tracks here – highlights include the wickedly infectious Voodoo Fire, heads down stomper The Unnatural World, the epic Captain Clegg (complete with Hammer Horror samples), the more restrained melodic Kaleidoscope of Desire, the eerie Omega Man, and the Crowbar-ish searing finale Dust of Paradise. With a great combination of grooves and heaviness this is probably Cathedrals 2nd best album, just behind their first attempt at this style on The Ethereal Mirror. Seriously groovy.

Caravan Beyond Redemption is an excellent CD of 70 minutes running time. The individual style has suprises. The bongo section on "Voodoo Fire" and voices from a sci-fi film on "Captain Clegg" - a tribute to great Hammer Horror films. "The Caravan" is a tribute to Black Sabbath. The lyrics are interesting with social commentary and inspired madness - such as the "The Omega Man" - a tale for the apocalypse. The 12 songs on the album are inspired and intelligent and definitely worth seeking out.

HASH(0x8c072444) out of 5 stars Return Of The Gods! 16 Jun. 2000
By DevilocK VerotiK - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well, i must say that this is an inpressive piece of work. They have created a wall of sound by expanding upon what they have done in the past and added a whole new atmosphere to their music. Cathedral have taken a simpler approach to song writing using chunky riffs and and the chaotic outpourings from singer Lee Dorrian. They have added to their sound by incorporating flutes, horns, and other types of percussion that doesn't distract the listener but envelops them into the world of Cathedral. Stand out tracks are Voodoo Fire, Unnatural World, Captain Clegg, Earth Messiah, Kaleidoscope Of Desire, Heavy Load and Omega Man. But the album itself is an all around great listen and is strongly recommended to their fans and also to first time listeners!
HASH(0x8c072498) out of 5 stars Doom metal's greatest does it again 5 Jan. 2014
By Scott Hedegard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Sabbath are the kings of doom, but Cathedral are the princes, if you will, and it's too bad they've broken up. No other doom band has the variety and chops of this great band, and the guitar work of Gary Jennings will be sorely missed. "Caravan Beyond Redemption" is somewhere between their classic doom laden work of "Forests of Equilibrium" and more experimental stuff like "The Guessing Game", for those keeping close score. However, like all Cathedral albums, it's heavy, innovative and first class stuff.
Lee Dorrian is one of metal's more charismatic vocalists, and the band is one of the most versatile and talented in metal. Favorite cuts include the opener "Voodoo Fire", complete with tribal rhythms, and the sick black bends of "Dust of Paradise" that closes the album. In between, you get hints of prog but mainly possibly the heaviest guitar tones of any band ever and a musicality that impresses without going overboard.
Why Cathedral didn't become huge is a mystery. Much more popular in Britain, possibly because of their decidedly English lyric matter, like "Captain Clegg", or "Witchfinder General", they nevertheless remained an underground favorite stateside. Right this wrong, and see for yourself just how insanely heavy metal could be.

HASH(0x8c241870) out of 5 stars Blew me away! 21 July 2000
By Bexborn Richard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The members of Cathedral are great musicians. There is no doubt about it. The way each instrument intertwines with the other, the bass and guitar(s) dancing around each other to the thunderous drums, and the singer sailing on their thick ocean with witty yet always wicked lyrics.
The groove of this group is unmistakable. One hardly needs more than a few beats to known that it is Cathedral. They know the meaning of jamming, and do it throughout this entire opus. I have no favorites here; the songs belong together and are all great.
Check this group out if you haven't already. They are a great band who make rich and powerful music.

HASH(0x8c072720) out of 5 stars Cathedral still kicks an @ss 2 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The ignorance displayed by the other reviewer is pepulsive. Caravan is Cathedral's best work thus far, even though it is not as doom as the stuff that they recorded a decade ago. Bands chage, and Cathedral has morphed slowly and positively, it's not as if they jumped on a passing-by trend. Every song on this album is a masterpiece and is fun to listen to because of the energy and excitement. For those of you who want your music to make you feel like a piece of crap should look elsewhere.
HASH(0x8c421180) out of 5 stars Not up to their awesome earlier stuff 25 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't know what's happening to Cathedral. Their recent output, while decent, just pales in comparison to their earlier classics. "Forest of Equilibrium" is a bona fide doom classic, and "The Ethereal Mirror" and "Carnival Bizarre" were more polished but lost none of the heaviness. After that, it seems to have gone downhill; while there are good moments, overall something is missing and the heaviness is diluted. They seem to want to sound more like Monster Magnet. Maybe that's what Cathedral wants. But as the flagship doom metal outfit, Cathedral owes us quality product. Let us hope they don't turn into another Metallicrap. As for now, stick with "Ethereal Mirror" if you want to hear them at top form.
