CATHEDRAL: New Song Posted Online

A brand-new CATHEDRAL track, "Upon Azrael's Wings", has been posted online at NuclearBlast.de (Real Media).

"Upon Azrael's Wings" comes off the doom icons' upcoming album, "The Garden of Unearthly Delights", due on September 26 via Nuclear Blast Records.

Produced by Warren Ryker (DOWN, CROWBAR), "The Garden of Unearthly Delights" is said to be the band's "most varied effort so far." While a song like "North Berwick Witch Trials" will bring back memories of such immortal riffs 'n' groove as in "Hopkins" or "Ride", "Tree of Life And Death" simply tears everything to pieces with its ultra-heavy guitar sound and fierce vocals courtesy of Lee Dorrian. The centerpiece of it all certainly is the 27-minute-long mammoth epos "The Garden" that almost bursts with such a wealth of ideas and changes in atmosphere that other bands probably couldn't come up with on a whole album. Using every stylistic device from female vocals up to violins and embedding it all in that typical CATHEDRAL brand of doom, "The Garden of Unearthly Delights" is a treat for every fan of the band, old and new alike.

The follow-up to 2002's "The VIIth Coming", "The Garden of Unearthly Delights" will once again feature the epic artwork of long-standing CATHEDRAL sleeve artist Dave Patchett.
