Hey people it's been awile.
Anathema have done it again. The new album is amazing!!!!
Hows things Karin? Nice to see this thread still kicking on
Yep, Anathema have indeed "done it again"
. The new album is a genuine beauty and rightfully gets all raving reviews everywhere.
And as good as it is, the material is even better LIVE.
I know as I've been to their concert in Amsterdam just a couple of days ago and I just cannot find the words to describe it. A fantastic concert by a very happy band who now fully realize that they've now finally made it 'BIG!' after some 20 years of struggling. I mean, being the headliner in a packed-to-the-rafters Paradiso in Amsterdam, that's about like the holy grass of Centre Court Wimbledon for tennis players, eh?
So good to see them get the response they so much deserve.
Daniel had some special treat for the die-hard fans - he put 20 of us on the guestlist and ordered us to come to Paradiso early and we were let in there by the great man himself. Quite a few nice words from him and Vinnie for us from the stage as well, thanking us for all our support during that long period of time.
Well Danny, as long as you keep on making that fantastic music, you're not getting away from us,
And tomorrow I'll be going to watch Steven Wilson and his band in Tilburg. jverweij is coming along too, so there will be a slight MTF-proggers meeting over there.
It's good times for the proggers right now. New albums from Anathema, Arjen Lucassen, and the project of SW with Mikael Akerfelt (Storm Corrosion) coming up. The gentlemen sure know how to keep us listeners busy - and happy.
