British doom metal masters Cathedral revealed last week the title for their forthcoming album, which they say is going to be the last they ever compose.
The album will be called The Last Spire and should be released sometime before the year’s over.
According to the band’s Lee Dorian, the band’s calling it a day after this album, as we’ve reported; the band said they would retire with this album as their parting shot. He also claims that he never thought Cathedral would make it this far in a recent interview.
“For a start, when we first formed the band we seriously never saw beyond making a demo,” Dorian tells Quietus. “What we were doing was purely out of love for our favorite doom metal bands, and they were so few and far between. To have had the opportunity to develop as a band and follow our own path has been nothing short of a miracle in the face of adversity. We had no plan, we just let it happen and we are utterly grateful to the people that have supported us, enabling it to come this far.”
When asked if this will, for sure, 100-percent be the last album, Lee didn’t mince words. Yes, The Last Spire will be our last album. I always said that if we make it to 10 albums it would be great. I can’t tell you much about it yet, as we haven’t started rehearsing for it.”
