Not to rag on the prog rock group, but I've always been a huge fan of the metal band Cathedral.  For those not familiar with them, they started out doing funeral doom, and then moved onto doing a combination of prog metal, stoner metal, and a bunch of other styles.  Any other fans of them on here?

I loved their early stuff.  It's very difficult to be really slow and not be boring, yet they pulled it off.

BRUTAL.

yes, "Geo", I know Portal. 'Outre' has a very oppressing atmosphere, it's a very strange album.

Cathedral... is... EXCELLENT!
One of the finest bands in the world.

Great band - one of the best - Endtyme is a superb slab of psychedelic laden doom.

Disembowelment is not a love song then?

I actually quite liked this, especially the drummer who creates space rather than just fills it.

Atheist is another great classic prog-metal act, especially their 1993 epic "ELEMENTS":

Are you implying that Cathedral are prog metal ?
I don't really see the connection between Atheist (jazzy death metal) and Cathedral (doom metal).

Indeed,I was wondering the same thing.Ok,we know that Lee Dorrian is a prog fan and Cathedral have some prog elements.But there is no connection between the two bands.

Lee Dorrian is in the PA, all be it as a guest vocalist on Catherdral's bassist Leo Smee's side project Chrome Hoof.

None what so ever. I thought we'd moved on from that and were only talking about the thread topic: Cathedral. Chrome Hoof is a band featuring a Cathedral band member and a guest appearance by Dorrian, surely that's more pertinent.Wink
