Cathedral




United Kingdom - Disbanded.

Description

Stoner/Doom

One of the forefathers of modern doom metal, Cathedral were formed by former Napalm Death vocalist Lee Dorrian. The bands demos and first album, Forest of Equilibrium, were extremely slow, heavy doom with hopeless guitar dirges and Lee's inhuman moan/growl. Their sound drastically changed on their second album, The Ethereal Mirror, which was firmly in the stoner rock camp. The band continued down this path, only rarely making brief returns to form at the request of their fans. The band is also known for Dorrian's extremely unique vocals. The band has undeniably influenced the doom metal and stoner rock genres as they are today. With 2013's 'The Last Spire', the band split with members moving on to other projects.
