08:34 - ScreamingSteelUS I've returned from tonight's show with a setlist from Mayhem, a pick from Watain's bassist, the new Mayhem and Rotting Christ, a Mayhem shirt, and vomit on my shoes from the guy next to me. Shook Necrobutcher's hand. Good show.
Guitarist Daniel "Danny" Cavanagh has posted the following update on the official Anathema website, in the diary section:
Sunlight fails but only for a while...
The album is coming along very nicely.
We are well aware that for one reason or another, it has taken a long time for Anathema to get to this place, but now we are ready. The album tracklist is decided. The rehearsals are going very well.
Everything, quite literally, is falling into place.
What i love about this record is the character it seems to have. The songs belong together. There is purpose and focus. And it shines. Brightly.
The message is one of hope. of the absolute certainty that there is a better way. There is always a better way. There is always a solution, a purpose. It only remains for us to be open to it. To bring ourselves back into harmony with a larger system.
