Aиατнεмα - Judgεмεиτ (1999)
Poppier than any of Doom/Alt. rock outfit's Aиατнεмα's doom heralding LPs up until that point, the transitory Judgement retains enough morbidity and atrophic edge to satiate their Gothic consumer base whilst managing to sneak in numerous memorable moments [dare I say it, "radio friendly"] below the studio-induced haze (mid-tempo heartbeater 'Deep' and soot-laden anthem 'Pitiless' being my elected representatives in court at the moment).
Moody this is, but weaksauce it ain't, and it should serve as a lovely springboard for anyone with even the slightest remote interest in output by the brothers Cavanaugh.
