    Love this band so much, I literally love everything this band has done from the Pentecost III ep onwards. Its ridiculous for a band to have been making such high quality music for so long.

    Great to see all those clips, but I think its time for some old school Anathema:

    I have to agree with this statement


    I'm going to be floating out of Center Stage after their set...

    To me distant Satellites is so magical,the emotion and beauty in the music and words
    The emotion it pulls from me as I listen to it
    Have not had an album hit me as powerfully sice riverside-Out of Myself,this could be an all decade disk and an alltime favorite,and this after having Weather Systems in nonstop rotation the prior year

    Not as much as me.

    This type of music is why I still do this thing.

    After Anathema bring the heavy emotion, people are going to get a taste for it. You are going to have to follow it up *cough* katatonia *cough*

    On my way to NY to the PoS show tonight, all I heard was Anathema.

    In the car now going back home. Anathema is on. Nothing else will be played.

    I'm fucking ready and you know it.

    I had distant satellites on nonstop at the vacation rental late June in St Maarten...
    2 very beautiful new fans were created

    I will be listening to nothing except anathema and riverside in Punta Cana next week at the IBMS event

    I rarely ever get emotional over a piece of music,and when I do it usually fades in a week
    I had the title track from Distant Satellites on during a shoot(its on my shoot playlist)and I had the somewhat embarrassing situation of getting emotional during this song...

    Very good chance for the first time I might be needing kleenex at a live show when this is performed

    The only thing I hope for is that they don't have the visa problems they had the last time I tried to see them. They were supposed to open up for Blackfield and instead only the Cavanaugh brothers could make it. While they scrambled to put together a set they could do with just the two of them, I'd rather see the full deal this time around.

    I've seen Anathema a few times (acoustic and full band) and they have been incredible every time. I'm so looking forward to next year. Thanks Glenn!

    They made it fine a few months back, opening for H.I.M. (and played at Center Stage in fact, albeit under dismal stage+lighting conditions.) And besides, ProgPower has the Visa Guy.

    Though, for the record, they won't be playing any of these in Atlanta. "Fragile Dreams" from 'Alternative 4' is likely to be as far back as they'll go (and with its catchy melodies and confident clean singing, it's fully past their doom/death era).

    They've done two successful full-band* North American tours since then, so, combined with the Visa Guru's powers, I imagine they'll be fine for PPUSA.

    *while they've had 5 musicians to do complete-band sets, Jamie Cavanagh (bass) and John Douglas (drums) of the "official" lineup were not present "due to unavoidable circumstances". Don't know if they were visa-related or not. While the rhythm section is not exactly the most critical component of Anathema, it does make it a bit disappointing that we haven't gotten the full "family" aspect of the band; one of the most amazing things about the current version of Anathema is that 5 of the 6 members are two sets of siblings (3 Cavanaghs and 2 Douglases) that formed the band as teenagers. It's really damn rare and kinda charming that a band this good and this long-lasting has such "unprofessional" origins.

    I haven't been much of a fan of them since way back in the Judgement/Alternative 4 era. I'll check their most recent stuff out though, it's been a long time.

    The term "prog" fits with Anathema more so than most of the bands who have been on the fest.
    No need to attack anyone, that was not a jab at any bad.
