I still hope it's just a hiatus and they will be back.

Weird for me is that they blame the ill-fated 2020 for their decision...

For another boring, fluffy post-rock album? I think their music has run its course...

Ya, this was long over due. I recall reading an interview with them in Pit back in 04 or 06 where they said they had a few more albums left before they ended Anathema. They should've quit after 'Eternity'. They've always written good lyrics but as stated above their musical output has been weak for years. Shifting from doom to alternative to pink floyd to post rock, their identity crises has been painful to watch.

For the most bands that split off, it's a mixture of many factors and for me, it seems that 2020 was just the nail in the coffin of the band. It just is as it is and I guess all of the involved musicians will make their path.

A lot of bands are hanging it up. This whole thing has been stupid.

It's probably just a hiatus. It's definitely Danny. Remember the number of times he's quit Anathema and then come back to it, etc.

No. I don't think their music has taken its course.
