Compare 'Resonance' to that of 'Resonance 2' and the listener would not believe that they are by the same band. While there is still the darkness and emotion, this is a band that at times seem as equally influenced by doom as they do by death. Opener "Lovelorn Rhapsody" takes a long time to pick up the pace, but even then it shows a distinct nod to Sabbath.

A very misleading title, seeing as this collection merely explores Anathema's quieter, more reflective side (i.e., atmospheric keyboard or acoustic guitar-driven numbers which comprised the exceptions rather than the norm on the band's albums). The norm, of course, would be the Liverpool act's core styles: doom/death in the early days, modern prog rock in the later – both of which are saved for representation on the following year's Resonance, Vol. 2.

Given Anathema's gradual transformation from doom metal merchants to sophisticated prog rockers over the course of many personnel changes since the mid-'90s, an album like Falling Deeper was a logical conceit. The band first revisited select moments from its catalog on the unplugged offering Hindsight in 2008. For some, it foretold the end. Then the band surprised many by returning in 2010 with new ideas and a renewed sense of purpose on the musically and sonically expansive – yet utterly accessible – We're Here Because We're Here, which drew raves from critics and fans alike.

After Falling Deeper, Anathema's orchestral detour into greatest hitsville, the Liverpool band return with a true follow-up to We're Here Because We're Here. What Falling Deeper accomplished was to make the band comfortable with the string arrangements of Dave Stewart; they're used abundantly – and to great benefit – on Weather Systems (produced by Christer-Andre Cederberg with Daniel and Vincent Cavanagh). Guitarist Daniel has written a set of songs that are more daring, harmonically ambitious, and poetically sophisticated than anything he's previously attempted.

Directed by Lasse Hoile (Steven Wilson/Opeth), Distant Satellites A Sort Of Home Coming is a stunning concert film of Anathema s homecoming show on March 7th 2015 in the spectacular setting of the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. Anathema have spent the vast majority of their career making music that defies description. Formed in the mid 90s, they have risen to become one of the UK s most cherished and critically acclaimed rock bands…

After the mildly disappointing Alternative 4, Anathema strikes back with Judgement. Upon first listen, the music and message seem a bit mellow for these doomy metal moguls. Second listen is like a magical rediscovery of a lost art form, the art of creating simple, depressing hard rock that is so emotionally expressive that it bends one's own constitution. Quiet and introspective on songs like "One Last Goodbye" and "Anyone, Anywhere," Anathema has the ability to spew forth raw, volcanic pain on cuts like "Judgement" and "Pitiless" – the last of which contains the most heart-wrenching solo the Cavanagh brothers have ever penned.

Although the British band Anathema left their traditional death metal sound behind on The Silent Enigma with guitarist Vincent Cavanagh taking over vocals duties from growler Darren White, the dark themes continue. Shifting their morbid focus from God-bashing and destruction, the chaps focus on suicide and the meaningless of life. The blistering guitars have been replaced by atmospheric keyboards making this come off as a twisted combination of Pink Floyd and Peter Gabriel, and there is even some spoken poetry here.

The Silent Enigma represents a turning point in Anathema's career (it is the first album to feature guitarist Vincent Cavanagh singing lead vocals, replacing Darren White) and sees the start of the band's gradual progression from doom metal to a softer style of rock. The album was originally titled Rise Pantheon Dreams, a title later used by White for his post-Anathema project The Blood Divine.

An amazing EP, though the length is that of an entire album. "Kingdom" starts the album with a classic epic song that's very emotional and the guitar melodies are excellent. "Mine is Yours to Drown In (our is the new tribe)" is an excellent song and being very dark. "We, the Gods" is another Anathema classic. Being perhaps their longest song recorded, the lyrics are great and the guitar work is again, mesmerizing.
