CATHEDRAL's new album, "The Garden of Unearthly Delights", was released in Europe on October 26. The CD will be issued in North America in January.
Produced by Warren Ryker (DOWN, CROWBAR), "The Garden of Unearthly Delights" is said to be the band's "most varied effort so far." 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.
