Formed in the summer of 1990 in Liverpool (also home to THE BEATLES), by Daniel Cavanagh (guitarist). Their original line-up was: Darren White (vocals), Vincent Cavanagh (guitars), Daniel Cavanagh (guitars), Jamie Cavanagh (bass), and John Dougals (percussion), under the moniker PAGAN ANGEL. Since then, there's been too many line-up changes to mention here, although Vincent, Daniel, and John have all maintained status in the band, except Daniel briefly in 2002 (click on the album's for more line-up information). They would release one demo and then change their name to ANATHEMA. They released two more demo's and then were discovered by Hammy of Peaceville Records, who signed them. They went on to be the most overlooked gem of the '90's. Starting as romantic doom metal ("The Crestfallen", "Serenades", and "The Silent Enigma"), and then transitioning into an avant-garde experimental force. Each album bears evidence of progression. The vocals are always improving and becoming even more poignant, accenting the music and lyrics (which this band are probably the best lyricist's out there). "Eternity" was sort of a transitional album for them, somewhat abandoning the guttural cries of despondency and replacing that with Vincent Cavanagh's beautiful singing voice. Their influences range from PINK FLOYD to The BEATLES to RADIOHEAD. The future for ANATHEMA is promising because they are the future.

"The Cresfallen" and "Serenades" are mainly attracted by doom metal fans because of the pace of the music and Darren White's moody vocals. "Pentecost III" showed the band exploring long escapades into realms not traveled by any band in their genre. Also being the last release to feature Darren White on vocals. "The Silent Enigma" is a monumental album, blending beauty and despair, poetically. "Eternity" was the transitional album, where they explored the vast expanse of space (a la PINK FLOYD). "Alternative 4" and "Judgement" were both excellent editions to their catalogue, but lacking the experimentation of the next two albums. "A Fine Day to Exit" was a large step into various different soundscapes. It was followed by "A Natural Disaster," where they achieved a sound completely their own, surpassing even RADIOHEAD, with their absolute exploration of the unknown. "We're Here Because We're Here" was released in 2010 and continued to show signs of progression of the band's sound.

 

SCRAPE is calling it a day / SCRAPE is for sale

Apr. 30, 2015

Vancouver is about to become a lot less METAL

“DISCIPLES”...the time has come...SCRAPE is calling it a day

This will probably come as a surprise to most and not no much to others. After thinking about this through great lengths over the past few years I have come to the conclusion that it has come time to announce that SCRAPE records will be closing its doors forever.

We're looking to close some time this summer. Exact day is TBA. Until a firm date is set, it's business as usual. We will still be getting new releases and restocks. Stock up while you can! We're hoping to put together a special farewell show / event. Stay tuned.

For the record, pun intended, the decision to close isn't due to poor sales or some weirdness with the landlord. It's 100% my decision and one of the hardest decisions I've ever had to make. The simple reality is that I've been working music retail for 23 years + owning / running SCRAPE for nearly 18 of those 23 years. It's time to move on. I know I have many ideas / goals I'd still like to accomplish in music and outside music.

That being said, in order for me to be able to put in the proper time, effort and attention to make my new ideas / ambitions / goals a reality, I must close the store or preferably sell the store. I'm terrified, but excited.

Your years of support as customer, supplier, label, promoter has meant everything in keeping the doors open for nearly 18 years. I'm extremely grateful for all your years of loyalty and it's been never taken for granted. That's what makes this the toughest. We hope to see you in store over the next few months.

Lots of you thought I was crazy back in '96-'97 when I had the idea to open a Hard Rock / Metal Shop. Now I'll probably be considered crazy for closing. Especially when SCRAPE is still profitable.

Perhaps SCRAPE needs fresh blood? Perhaps YOU might want to take over the reigns and own SCRAPE and keep the METAL flowing? It doesn't have to stop! The METAL is in your hands!

SCRAPE is officially for sale! Serious inquiries only.

STAY TRUE!

Until The Fog Passes...we aren't done until we're done.
