‘The Silent Enigma’, Anathema’s second studio album, was originally released in the summer of ’95 & was the first release on which guitarist Vincent Cavanagh took over the vocal duties of the departed Darren White. Where Darren’s vocals were guttural, Vincent’s style pushed the possibilities for Anathema onwards & upwards, with a scope & breadth beyond his years, complimenting an ethereal roller-coaster of thoughtful atmospherics & crushing Celtic Frost style riffs – the Swiss legends being a notable inspiration. What emerged was a fine example of highly-atmospheric & often emotional gothic doom, spawning classic Anathema songs such as “Restless Oblivion”, “Sunset of Age”, “The Silent Enigma” & “A Dying Wish”. Lauded by the metal press & fans alike as a doom metal classic, the album’s popularity has remained a favourite within the metal scene.

This edition of ‘The Silent Enigma’ is presented on single vinyl including inner sleeve with lyrics.
