Hi there again!
From what ive just seen on youtube i can tell they put on a great show.
Yes they do. I know, after having witnessed some 50+ of their shows since 1997! I've lost count, at least 3-4 a year...
Whatever a great band on CD, they might well be 10000 times as good live
. Well, let's just say that their appearance at the Milky Way in Amsterdam during their A Fine Day To Exit
-tour has become 'legendary' among the Anathemaniacs, as that one truly SUCKED - the band had obviously been enjoying the Amsterdam 'Coffee Shops' a little too much there
. That gig was so shitty, it was hilarious...
Anathema have never been to Australia so far. But with their uprising popularity nowadays... who knows. I will surely tell Danny that he SHOULD go there one day. Perhaps PT will be as kind and invite them as support act over there?
Yea i kinda thought the album name was not so great at first but it definitely fits the concept of the album and is alot deeper in meaning then i first thought. It's hard not to be positive when you have SW producing though. The vocals on the record are just perfect.
There have been massive discussions among their fans about that album title. Let's recuperate... it was at first called Paradigm Shift
, thereafter came Horizons
, thereafter it was Angels Walk Among Us
, and maybe some 5-10 other names (among them, "This Album Won't Be Released Until 2084" - Daniel Joking, of course )
, until Daniel finally pulled the plug (well he in fact put it up as a poll for us fans to vote for it - and of course didn't give a damn about the outcome
) and stated that it would be We're Here Because We're Here
, as a kind of humanistic statement. And indeed, regarding the past history that all of the bandmembers went through together in the past 20 years, I can well understand why he chose to do so.
I still cherish my Angels Walk Among Us
It might become a fans' thing to hunt for on E-bay in a couple of years.
Sorry bout that i fixed it though. Universal is one of my fave tracks on the album.
It's one of mine as well. Absolutely brilliant track!
I can't wait...
Oh and talking about 'I can't wait'- I've just uploaded a new review to the Archives: http://www.progarchives.com/Review.asp?id=292159
I've got tickets to see their show in Dortmund, coming October!!!
A true 'Old Love' of mine. It won't ever die. What a band.
