Anathema - We’re Here Because We’re Here Cover

A heavy beast...

Having long since evolved to the point of becoming unrecognisable from the doomy, death metal-influenced quintet that emerged from Liverpool in the early 90s, Anathema have since established themselves as one of the UK’s most consistently compelling ambient rock acts, and ‘We’re Here Because We’re Here’ only enforces that wellearned reputation. A dazzling collection of highlycharged, progressive and emotively atmospheric rock songs that rarely dip below the euphoric, ‘We’re Here Because We’re Here’ might not carry the same kind of weight as the Scousers’ earlier albums, but have no doubt about it, Anathema are still a heavy beast.
