FOREST OF EQUILIBRIUM, THE
Cathedral - Forest Of Equilibrium (Digipack CD) - Originally released in 1991, æThe Forest Of EquilibriumÆ is the classic debut album from British Doom Metallers Cathedral. Cathedral formed in the early 90Æs, bringing together Lee Dorrian (vocals, ex-Napalm Death) and Garry æGazÆ Jennings (ex-Acid Reign). In a move that shocked fans, Dorrian went from the worldÆs fastest band to arguably the slowest, as Cathedral set about bringing doom metal to the masses. Since the release this album has reached seminal status amongst fans and press as a timeless record in the doom genre including a coveted induction into Decibel MagazineÆs Hall Of Fame. SALES POINTS First time this album has been available on digipack CD. Cathedral have been credited with leading a resurgence of interest in the Doom Metal scene, previously a very underground phenomenon using early Black Sabbath and occult 70Æs rock as its blueprint. The band toured the world with great success supporting the likes of Black Sabbath and Motorhead, and eventually signed a major label deal with Columbia Records in the mid 90's. The band released 7 albums with Earache and several EPÆs, before continuing a career that lasted until 2014. Dorrian also runs the respected Rise Above Records home to such bands as Ghost, Uncle Acid and Electric Wizard.
