Anathema – ‘Serenades’ CD


Anathema’s ‘Serenades’ is an album that stands out for its melancholic and at times disquieting atmosphere, perfectly capturing the essence of the doom death doom British era. Taking its inspiration from the gothic of the late 70s and early 80s, the album showcases the band’s penchant for dark and atmospheric music.

The album opens with ‘Serenades’, a track that perfectly demonstrates Anathema’s ability to create a powerful and emotive atmosphere with their music. The song builds slowly, using haunting guitars and subtle drums to create a sense of unease. As the track progresses, the guitars become more aggressive and the drums become more prominent, culminating in a powerful climax.

The next song, ‘The Silent Enigma’, is a slower-paced number that showcases Anathema’s softer side. The song is much more melancholic than the preceding track, with a gentle guitar and piano taking centerstage. The lyrics are especially heartbreaking, as vocalist Vincent Cavanagh sings of lost love and regret.

‘Eternal Rise of the Sun’ is yet another example of Anathema’s ability to create a unique and powerful atmosphere. The song is driven by a driving bassline and powerful drums, while the guitars add a sense of urgency. The song builds to a powerful climax, showcasing the band’s impressive ability to write powerful and emotive songs.

Overall, ‘Serenades’ is a powerful and emotive album that demonstrates Anathema’s ability to create an atmospheric and melancholic sound. The album perfectly captures the essence of post-punk and gothic rock, while also showcasing the band’s softer side. It is an album that will surely delight fans of the genre and is a must-listen for those looking for something a little different.
