More album details here.
Lee Dorrian adds: "When the last mix was finally done, there was a massive sense of relief. I think this was partly due to the fact that it meant Cathedral could finally be put to rest but also because we felt we'd done something that we were all very pleased with. I feel comfortable leaving The Last Spire as our legacy." Dorrian continues, "The funeral of Cathedral has been a long but gratifying process. Deciding to end the band wasn't an easy decision to make but we knew deep down in our hearts that it was the right thing to do."
Cathedral released their first new recorded material in three years exclusively via Decibel Magazine's subscriber-only Decibel Flexi Series. The song "Vengeance Of The Blind Dead", can still be heard over here.
