Anathema - We're Here Because We're Here (2010)


The ninth album from this English band.

The band was a sextet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards, piano and vocals.

The band was helped out by a string orchestra, female vocalists and male vocalist.

Anathema takes another step away from metal on this album. 

There is nothing left of the music who gave us doom metal classics like Crestfallen and Serenades on this album. 

The music is more like dream pop, post rock and indeed art rock and progressive rock on this album. 

There is a lot of strings and female vocals here. The music has an ethereal dreamy feel on this one hour long album. It has a lot of Pink Floyd too but with other instruments and vocals than Pink Floyd used. 

The music is also pretty melancholic. 

There is indeed no metal here and nothing from the old Anathema. It just has this desire to explore new territories and to create unique music. That is indeed like the Anathema who gave us the Serenades album.

This is indeed a very good album and perhaps their best album so far. 

Check out this album.
