VARIOUS ARTISTS / The Best Of Peaceville (1996)

If you hadn’t already guessed, this is a best of Peaceville label sampler.  Being released back in 1996 means there's no Opeth, Akercocke, Katatonia or Darkthrone on the roster.  It’s dominated by the 3 biggest artists they had at that time: Anathema, My Dying Bride, and the gloomy Paradise Lost.  There's one track from the short-lived Dominion, from an album I have yet to buy.
There’s nothing to encourage existing fans to buy, but as a sampler and a snapshot of an important label for British metal, it’s a great collection.

Songs of Note: MDB / A Sea To Suffer In; Anathema / Lovelorn Rhapsody

4 vile acts out of 5
