Description

KSCOPE TO RE-RELEASE 2 DISC (CD/DVD) OF ANATHEMA'S ACCLAIMED 2014 ALBUM 'DISTANTSATELLITES' AT MID-PRICE.

Anathema have spent the vast majority of their career making music that defies description. Formed in the mid 90s, they have risen to become one of the UK's most cherished and critically acclaimed rock bands.

With their star rising ever higher, Anathema returned in 2014 with a new studio album - 'Distant Satellites', the highly anticipated follow up to ANATHEMA's critically acclaimed 2012's 'Weather Systems' and 2013's stunning concert film 'Universal' directed by Lasse Hoile.

'Distant Satellites' was recorded at Cederberg Studios in Oslo with favoured producer Christer-André Cederberg. Alongside additional mixing by Grammy Nominated Steven Wilson, ANATHEMA also brought in the legendary services of Dave Stewart (Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson) to create the new album's extraordinary orchestral arrangements.

Instantly recognisable to ANATHEMA's global army of ardent disciples as another chapter in this band's remarkable story. With a few strides into uncharted territory, not least the electronica-driven surge of the album's stunning title track, 'Distant Satellites' will surely be recognised as not only their finest album to date but was one of the most celebrated and lauded albums of 2014, reaching 32 in the UK charts with the likes of The Guardian (UK), Metal Hammer (UK /DE),Kerrang (UK), Classic Rock (UK/DE), Prog Magazine (UK),Aardschok (NL), Rock Hard (DE), Rolling Stone (Aus)heaping praise on the album.

'Distant Satellites' showcased another imperious forward step into the realm of miraculous songwriting and is a gleaming anthology of beautifully crafted songs, performed with vitality, verve and utmost passion, once again demonstrating the sublime, instinctive song writing talents of the Cavanagh brothers and drummer John Douglas. Complementing the album is the beautifully ethereal artwork created by Korean new media artist Sang Jun Yoo, based around his Distant Light Installation in New York.

Kscope are re-releasing 'Distant Satellites' 2 disc CD DVD set as a Media Book Edition which features studio album DTS 5.1 Surround / Dolby AC3 5.1 Surround / 48/24 Stereo LPCM DVD-V mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth) with a 24 page booklet.
