Anathema Announces New Album
2014-02-28 by Onirium | 46 Comments
Recently, Anathema's singer/multi-instrumentalist Daniel Cavanagh announced that the band has been working on its 10th studio album, and that it is scheduled for release in May of this year.

Cavanagh stated that he was influenced by Radiohead and Atoms for Peace, and that some tracks will have a slightly more electronic feel. He also talked about a possible short acapella song. He says the next album will follow the same path than the previous two, but he stated that, on those past releases, the band has played it a bit safe, and that Anathema plans to gradually shift away from that on the next few albums.

Judgement is one of my favourite albums of all time. I liked their last couple of releases too. High hopes for this.

internal landscapes and the storm before the calm on their last album were great

basically they still write good music but the lyrics could use a little work in a few songs

I think this might just be a more edgy version of Weather Systems, I'm not expecting it to be radically different.

Even if their next album is some estrogenic hipster tripe, I'll probably still like it. One constant with this band is that they always seem to get the dynamics just right.

"A Simple Mistake" is the best song that Anathema has released in years—maybe ever, but it's also the only standout track from their last three albums, combined. After Weather Systems I think I've finally come to a point where I've given up on ever hearing an Anathema album as enjoyable as Judgment or Alternative 4.
