New Anathema Album
2012-01-31 by DarkNoctus CONTRIBUTOR | 35 Comments
British atmospheric rockers (and former doom metallers and just about everything else inbetween) Anathema are set to release their new album, Weather Systems on April 16th.

Weather Systems is the follow-up to 2010’s We're Here Because We're Here. That album featured prominently in numerous end-of-year polls and the producer, Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree), has described it as 'definitely among the best albums I’ve ever had the pleasure to work on.'

The bar for Weather Systems has been set pretty high then but Daniel is certain that the album will exceed these lofty expectations, ‘it feels like we are at a creative peak right now, and this album reflects that. Everything from the production to the writing to the performances are a step up from our last album.’

He continues, ‘This is not background music for parties. The music is written to deeply move the listener, to uplift or take the listener to the coldest depths of the soul.’

The intertwining melodic structures of these profoundly beautiful songs are intensely powerful, yet simple. These are songs that will transport the listener closer to the heart of life, that is to say, to the heart of themselves.

It is also an album of polarity. The play of opposites; light and shade, birth and death, love and fear. The simple truths of life and loss, hope and strength and darker internal themes are all explored here.

YES! even though their last album is a low 3.5, the potential for this band is just amazing.

neat cover although i've kinda given up on liking this band

WHBWH was painfully boring, everything else i've heard from them has been better but doesn't hold my interest.

Great news. Hope it's all good. WHBWH 2nd half seemed a bit lackluster from the first half. The first half was great.

They are hyping this up so I'm sure it will at least be good.

Just listened to We're Here Because We're Here last week and it's still as moving as it was when I first heard it. Presence really had a huge impact on how I look at death which is a huge thing if you think about it :D
Also: love the cover for Weather Systems

"The bar for Weather Systems has been set pretty high". Got that right.

Looking forward to this. Absolutely loved WHBWH.
