Cathedral celebrate 20 years with original line up

The year 2010 marks the Twentieth Anniversary of Cathedral and in order to commemorate the occasion the band will perform a one-off show on December 3rd 2010 at the O2 Academy in Islington, North London.

For one night only Cathedral will be performing two sets, including the entirety of their landmark debut album and Doom Metal classic ‘Forest of Equilibrium’ where Lee Dorrian and Garry Jennings will be joined by the recording line up Mark “Griff” Griffiths, Adam Lehan and Mike Smail.

This will be followed by a second set of songs performed by the current line-up of Lee Dorian, Garry Jennings, Brian Dixon & Leo Smee.

Vocalist Lee Dorrian elaborates: “Cathedral has come along way since those dirge-ridden smoke-filled, cheap lager and sweat infested early rehearsals back in 1990. To be brutally honest, back then we never imagined that we would have continued on a twenty year journey and still be here to tell the tale”.

“A lot of bands that have been around this long tend to shy away from their roots, in favour of more ‘accessible’ material that they wrote in their “maturing” stages. Well, despite the fact that we may have expanded on our sound and style since those early days, we are certainly not embarrassed by our origins, in fact the opposite is true.  To commemorate (Commiserate?) this twenty year marathon, we thought it would be a cool idea to regroup the line up of our first studio album for a special one-off show, and perform it in it’s entirety. Fortunately, everyone from those days agreed. This will mark the beginning of the evening, which will be followed by a set of material ‘post-Forest’ bringing us right up to date with our latest album, ‘The Guessing Game’. We are excited about this event and look forward to seeing you there”.
