Cathedral - Our God Has Landed

  | Video (NTSC)

Cathedral-Our God Has Landed UK metal merchants CATHEDRAL have been shaping the doom scene for well over a decade, paving the way for the likes of ANATHEMA, MY DYING BRIDE, and PARADISE LOST. Founding band members Lee Dorrian (of NAPALM DEATH fame) and guitarist Gaz Jennings have forged a unique style often imitated by Stoner bands like ORANGE GOBLIN, ELECTRIC WIZARD, and SPIRITUAL BEGGARS. Imagine if you will the extreme edge of NAPALM DEATH combined with the sludge groove of BLACK SABBATH. Now slow it down to an absolute crawl and you have the heaviness and atmosphere of CATHEDRAL. Several years back, the band put out a VHS tape called CATHEDRAL- OUR GOD HAS LANDED. This home video contained several of their psychedelic promo videos and clips culled from a live performance recorded in Japan (where the band is worshipped much like the mighty BLACK SABBATH itself).

OUR GOD HAS LANDED opens with eight of the bands' conceptual promos including their brilliant video debut, Ebony Tears. Next Dorrian and company storm into Autumn Twilight, Cosmic Funeral, Ride, and Midnight Mountain, which shows CATHEDRAL incorporating a psychedelic groove into their compositions. Lee Dorrian and Gaz Jennings have a keen interest in classic horror and B movies, which manifests itself in the last three tracks, Hopkins (The Witchfinder General), Black Sunday, and Stained Glass Horizon. The video for Hopkins is a killer, incorporating footage and vocals of Vincent Price as Withhunter Matthew Hopkins, the blood thirsty title character of the cult classic THE WITCHFINDER GENERAL. Black Sunday is a visual tour deforce of practicing witches, dancing devils, and super hot models in tight MAD MAX outfits. This series of videos chronicles the progression of CATHEDRAL, from their doomy early days to their retro metal approach and Tony Iommi worship.
