United Kingdom - Active.

Description

Death/Doom

Started playing heavy death/doom as one of the great death/doom bands from the Peaceville label in the early 90s. They were often mentioned alongside Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride. Early Anathema was characterized by the charismatic vocals of Darren White and the unique guitar playing of the Cavanagh brothers. After Darren left, they slowly changed into a dark alternative band, slowly losing all elements of what made them Anathema. Their later work shows them aping the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Mogwi, to name a few.
