I don't know about a favourite period as such, but there are plenty of high points in their discography for me: As The Flower Withers, The Angel And The Dark River, Like Gods Of The Sun & The Dreadful Hours would be their peaks for me, and the last two (particularly The Ghost Of Orion) are a great return to form after that relative creative slump IMO.

There's a few metal vocalists that come to mind that blew their voice out, or at least admit that they dealt with issues on stage and stuff.

What does make me wonder is how a harsh vocalist would be able to cope with these things by sticking to studio performances only. It's an interesting idea to think about imo.

I assume you’ve listened to Pentecost III before, but I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.

Now Playing:

Lots of 70s rock tonight - some Aerosmith, some Mountain, and now Budgie. This isn’t my favourite, but it was the first I heard.

All this Anathema talk got me in the mood for this record again; it seems like a faithful tribute to The Silent Enigma...I just don't remember it sounding as overwhelming, but it might be worth spinning again.

Nice review. I agree with you for the most part.

Now Playing:

Continuing with some more Dio-led Sabbath.

Thanks! It took me some years, but I've finally reached where a point where I feel satisfied enough with my writings.

I could never get into that Sabbath album. I'd rather spin Heaven and Hell or Dehumanizer

I probably prefer those two to Mob Rules, both in songwriting and production, but there’s some great material there (the title track is a stomper, and ‘Falling Off the Edge of the World’ and ‘The Sign of the Southern Cross’ are EPIC! in the best possible ways.

I’m horrible at writing reviews, so anyone who can crank them out regularly (and to a decent quality, and don’t worry, I enjoyed your writing), has my admiration because I am just far too picky of myself to do it.

To me the album just lacks the catchiness of its predecessor and the straight-up-heaviness appeal of Dehumanizer.

As with most things in life, writing is a skill. I remember my very first review that got submitted by the time I was around 15 years of age (I'm now 26). As you can expect, it was full of dumb inaccurate claims and vague descriptions. :lol: It was for Pestilence's Testimony of the Ancients.

A bit reminiscent of early (Darren White era) Anathema. Sounds a bit unfocused, though.

I like Vincent's vocals here. They sound much better than that live performance I had linked before.

Someone recommended to me and while I didn't expect much, this sounds pretty cool. Like Tucker-era Morbid Angel meets The Ruins of Beverast or something.

More early Anathema-esque metal here.
