In their debut album Cathedral suggested the existence of a grotesque universe beyond the sepulchral fog and funereal heaviness of their music. Yet nobody could have imagined what Forest of Equilibrium shroud really hided. Beyond the (ethereal) mirror we are literally thrown in a chaotic hell: a psychedelic parallel world, totally crazy and uncontrollable as an orgiastic bacchanal, where Black Sabbath (Master of Reality era), Hawkwind (Doremi Fasol Latido era) and Blue Cheer are reinvented through an ultra-groovy sound. Mockingly Lee Dorrian band introduces absurdity and irony in the most pessimistic heavy metal subgenre, without losing darkness fascination. Ethereal Mirror is one of the most important pillar in Stoner Doom music: a bridge between traditional heavy metal and alternative rock.
