Anathema ‎– The Sweet Suffering

Peaceville ‎– CC6
Vinyl, 7", Test Pressing, 33 ⅓ RPM


This 7" was meant to be the sixth in the Peaceville exclusive Collectors Club series - limited to members only.

This test pressing was already made for the release, but the 7" was withdrawn at the last moment and never released. 'We Are The Bible' was quickly recorded and chosen to be released as CC6 instead.

Pressed on the 11th of March 1994.

Only 5 copies were made. 4 of the copies were given to the band members as mementos.

Approximate track lengths are the following:
- All Faith Is Lost 7:24
- The Sweet Suffering 7:18

The version of 'The Sweet Suffering' on this 7" is not the same as the version released on 'The Crestfallen' EP. This is longer and rawer (also vocally harsher in style) than the version on 'The Crestfallen'.
Also the length of the track 'All Faith Is Lost' differs from the version on the 'All Faith Is Lost' -demo.
