Cathedral- The Carnival Bizarre (1995)

This is the third album from Cathedral - even though
it is considered as not being as "important" as the
previous releases (forefathers of the doom resurgence etc)
for me, it has much better production, which means they
actually sound more powerful than before + it is the first
thing I heard by them which always seems to lodge into
the brain.

It is not just crushing doom, though - the vocals are varied
and you can hear metal and prog playing a part in the song
writing, making this a more varied, and ultimately more
satisfying experience.


  1. Plus Tony Iommi features on Utopian Blaster! This was the first Cathedral album I heard too, definitely one of my favourites.

  2. Aye it's definitely up there like. The earlier the better for me.
