PEACEVILLE TO RELEASE PICTURE DISC VINYL OF ANATHEMA'S SECOND STUDIO ALBUM TO COINCIDE WITH THE RELEASE OF THEIR 11th STUDIO ALBUM ON KSCOPE
Anathema have spent the vast majority of their career making music that defies description. Formed in the mid 90s, they have risen to become one of the UK's most cherished and critically acclaimed rock bands.
The Silent Enigma, Anathema's second studio album, was originally released in the summer of '95 and is the first release on which guitarist Vincent Cavanagh took over the vocal duties of the departed Darren White. Where Darren's vocals were guttural, Vincent's style pushed the possibilities for Anathema onwards and upwards, with a scope and breadth beyond his years. The Silent Enigma contains influences from artists such as Celtic Frost. They emerged as a fine example of highly atmospheric & often emotional gothic doom, spawning classic Anathema songs such as "Restless Oblivion", "Sunset of Age", "The Silent Enigma" & "A Dying Wish". Lauded by the metal press & fans alike as a doom metal classic, the album's popularity has remained a favourite within the metal scene.
The release of The Silent Enigma complements the release of their acclaimed new album The Optimist on Peaceville's sister label Kscope on 9th June. The band are currently embarking on an extensive world album tour which will continue into 2018, heading to South America, USA, Canada, Europe, Australia, India, UK & Ireland , while also making a number of festival appearances, including Download and Be Prog! My Friend.
