CATHEDRAL: 'Forest Of Equilibrium' Reissue To Include 40-Minute Documentary

Earache Records has announced the reissue of CATHEDRAL's megalithic doom opus "Forest Of Equilibrium", which was originally released in 1991 and is still recognized as a landmark of the doom scene. Packaged in a deluxe digipak with amazing artwork and a double-sided poster featuring Dave Patchett's cover artwork in all its glory plus four bonus songs from the long-deleted "Soul Sacrifice" EP, the set contains a brand new 40-minute documentary entitled "Return to the Forest". The footage, which was filmed earlier this year, features an in-depth discussion about the formation of the band and the recording of the classic debut album with key early bandmembers, including longstanding core duo Lee Dorrian and Garry Jennings, plus an interview with famed cover artist Dave Patchett. All this is packaged in a deluxe multi panel digipack with amazing artwork and a reversable poster.
