Anathema - News About Two New Albums


The following news comes from Anathema's myspace page.

"Greetings to all…

We have taken all of our recording equipment to a house in England where we have built a studio and begun the first of two records to be released this year. The recording has been going very well.

This first record is a semi-acoustic recording of many of our most loved older tracks. This will be released on Peaceville records. The working title is 'temporary peace.'

The songs to be included on 'temporary peace' are:

Angelica, leave no trace, inner silence, one last goodbye, are you there, fragile dreams, a natural disaster, temporary peace and flying.

The record will be a substantial work, arranged by Danny and performed and produced by the band, recorded and engineered by our own Les Smith, who was responsible for the recordings of 'everything' and the other new songs released online last year.

This will also feature the cello of Dave Wesling, who previously toured with Vincent and Danny in 2004 and is featured on the DVD 'a moment in time.'

It may also include a reworking of one or two classic tracks from the very early days of anathema.

In late winter/early spring, immediately following the recording of this semi-acoustic album, we will enter a studio to record the next full length anathema album, which be produced by Anathema and mixed by Steven Wilson, independently from a record company.

Upon completion, the new album will be licensed around the world, giving us artistic and creative control and keeping the rights to the music in our own hands.

All being well, you will see the release of two records from anathema this year. A semi acoustic classic tracks album, and a full length new album.

Then touring…

Best wishes to all,

Anathema"

Great news!

Well, when you know how good are the accoustic versions of the old songs played live, be sure that this release will kick ass!

Yawn, I am afraid it will eb another dreary yawnfest like EVERYTHING released from Alternative 4 till now. Just uninspired (to my ears at least) plodding music, havily inspired by Pink Floyd (bu tnothing as genius as PF whatsoever) Exactly the same trap The Gathering have fallen into as well.

But I think I will buy the new albums nonetheless cause their music nowadays is a great cure for most of my insomniac nights.

Well okay, they're heavenly inspired by Pink Floyd, and indeed not as good (but then again, what is?). But I don't think you can call 'm boring. I mean, listen to the composition in i.e. Pulled Under By 2000 Metres A Second! It's just incredible.
