Cathedral

Cathedral are a heavy metal/doom metal band from Coventry, England

== Biography =

The band was founded in 1990 by Lee Dorrian (a former member of Napalm Death), Mark 'Griff' Griffiths (a former Carcass roadie) and Garry 'Gaz' Jennings (formerly of Acid Reign). At first they played very heavy and slow doom metal that was released through Earache. They later incorporated elements of stoner rock and progressive rock into their sound and some of their albums were released through Dorrian's own label, Rise Above Records.

In 1989 Lee Dorrian left his former band Napalm Death mainly becase he was getting sick of the punk scene and did not like the death metal direction Napalm Death was heading towards. Cathedral was formed after Lee Dorrian and Mark Griffiths met and discussed their love for doom bands like Candlemass, Dream Death, Pentagram, Trouble, and of course Witchfinder General (who Dorrian would later name a song after). Thus, Cathedral was born as a death/doom band on their first releases, but overtime became what many consider to be "modern doom metal" and today, they are a stoner/groove metal band with some doom influences.
