Some surface noise, worse at the beginning of my copy's B side. It is a picture disc. From GZ. Not a great combination. But cleaning has alleviated most of the noise. Nice to finally have this on vinyl. The recording itself sounds fantastic.

This is part of the recent digipack reissue series, but unlike most of those, it is not Full Dynamic Range.

This repress was done most likely in 1998-1999, judging by the use of DocDATA UK by Earache

Sounds good. Dvd is cool, wish it was longer though like they could've added the live performance of Cathedral from their set during the Gods Of Grind tour from 1992 which coincided with this album. Still cool though.

Lee Dorrian loves extreme borders. In the middle of the 80s he contributes to create a brutal and crazy sound, through ultra-short and ultra-fast Napalm Death music. Then, he creates a sepulchral sound, through ultra-long and ultra-slow Cathedral music. Once again the result is an authentic revolution. Forest of Equilibrium is so dilated that transcends his influences sounding hallucinogenic and stoned. Beyond the abundance of darkness and sense of oppression, classical in doom metal of the 80s, there are no epic melodies or hard rock riffs, but a psychedelic fog that reminds 70s drug passion, without being similar to Black Sabbath sound. Cathedral show the grotesque dimension of doom, that will be explicit in the following albums - while here it is still subtle. A strange cemeterial bad trip, as the cover artwork shows.

Fantastic Doom album right out of the Black Sabbath mold. 80/100
