CATHEDRAL BAND PIC 6-10-15As with a choice few truly great bands, self-financed cassette recording by CATHEDRAL – made available in October 1990 – was a pioneering underground masterpiece in its own right; the sound of a young exploring its newfound chemistry, finding confident variations on a flawless list of influences and cultivating a sound and style that would prove hugely inspirational throughout the 1990s and beyond, being a major influence on everyone from Wizard through to Reverend Bizarre.

Where most demos are little more than a dry run for album, InMemoriam still has its own distinct and important identity in theCATHEDRAL canon. The debut LP that followed, Forest Of Equilibrium, has a somber, devout, and mystical grandeur all of its own – but In  has a far murkier, earthier, more deathly intent. Creepy, cryptic and bowel-looseningly heavy, it represents the that the  stylings of Trouble, Saint Vitus, and Witchfinder General had been rendered in a new, more metallic form.

At the beginning of the new decade, it was really only  who were proud to assert the influence of true metal – a perennially unfashionable genre, but especially in a turn-of-the-  scene so obsessed with speed, technicality, brutality and modernity.

Now the former members of CATHERDRAL have moved on and continue their musical ventures.  Garry “Gaz” Jennings released the debut from his new band Penalty last year and now plays as part of the Lucifer.  Also expected soon is a release from featuring Lee Dorrian and original Wizard Members Mark Greening and Tim Bagshaw
