The Last Spire by Cathedral
Released: Apr 2013
Label: Metal Blade Records
The venerable doomsters fill their 10th regular-issue with stout, quavering dirges -- often exceeding nine minutes -- played with a way-filthy guitar tone and British in both accent and temperament. "War! Famine! Drought! Disease," "Pallbearer" warns, advocating fleeing earth before it dies. "Infestation of Grey Death" mixes a bit of Johnny Rotten into its Ozzy: "drudgery of the factory...a holiday beside the sea." "An Observation" turns full-on prog, a demi-classical string motif winding through. Plus: Duck Dynasty quack calls, music-box interludes and 38 seconds of hysterical laughter.
