Anathema : Judgement

This effort by Anathema's, made it clear that the band from Liverpool made a definate choice for an atmospheric, heavy rock sound, abandoning any doom elements you could find in their music of the past.

Some of the elements they kept from their previous works, are the general atmosphere of melancholy, the emotional songs and a serious stigma in the eyes of their new audience of being the band that used to play death metal once.

'Judgement' is actually a quality work, featuring some of the most original and emotional rock music you can find in our days and it is a recommendation for all fans of quality music with a dark edge.

But this doesn't guarantee that most doom fans will like this work, especially not the ones that think that bands like f.i. Katatonia are too soft. But in my opinion, it's difficult to ignore the emotional, beautiful music one can find in this work, even if you feel depressed (like me) because so many doom bands abandon their roots and evolved towards a more accesible sound.
