Lee Dorrian is an English singer, best known as a former member of Napalm Death and frontman of Cathedral. During his early teenage years, he was the editor of a local punk fanzine called Committed Suicide; this led to him becoming a local punk promoter during the mid-late 80's, bringing bands such as B. G. K. Amebix, Negazione, AntiCimex, Bannlyst, Icons of Filth, Anti System, Concrete Sox, The Varukers and many others to various Coventry venues, such as the back room of The Hand & Heart public house on Far Gosford Street. During this time he was a passionate animal rights activist and involved in various anarchist groups and demonstrations. In 1987 he became vocalist and lyricist with Napalm Death, recording one and a half albums with them, namely the second side of Scum and the whole From Enslavement to Obliteration album. During his time in the band, they were majorly championed by John Peel and recorded two sessions for his Radio One show; the band made several significant TV appearances on BBC shows such as Snub TV, Arena and children's music show What's That Noise?
They appeared on the front cover of NME, the inspiration to the lyrics of a song "No Mental Effort". This track appeared on Dorrian's final recording with Napalm Death, on the Mentally Murdered EP. To coincide with its release in 1989, friend Peel had helped to arrange a slot for them at Reading Festival; the appearance had to be cancelled as Dorrian left the band due to disillusionment following their tour of Japan in July of that year. Whilst still a member of Napalm Death, Dorrian founded his own record label, Rise Above Records in 1988. Intended as a means to get him off the dole, Rise Above was kick-started as part of the Enterprise Allowance Scheme, his main aim was to release a few hardcore punk 7" singles in limited runs, just for fun. However, the label went from strength to strength and is today one of the most revered underground independent record labels in existence; some of the artists that Dorrian has introduced to the world via Rise Above Records include Ghost, Electric Wizard, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats, Blood Ceremony and many more.
In 1989, Dorrian formed doom metal band Cathedral, releasing their debut album Forest of Equilibrium in 1991. The album is considered a cornerstone in the evolution of the genre. Cathedral existed as a band for over 23 years before deciding to call it a day in 2012, ahead of releasing their final album The Last Spire in 2013. During their lengthy career, they played as main support to Black Sabbath on their Cross Purposes tour in 1994; as a result, the band became friendly with Tony Iommi, which led to him making a rare guest appearance on Cathedral's 1995 album The Carnival Bizarre. In 1995, Dorrian collaborated with Italian occultist musician Paul Chain, with whom he co-wrote four songs which appeared on the Alkahest album, he appeared as vocalist/lyricist in extreme doom project Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine, featuring members of Sunn O))) and Iron Monkey, releasing the one-off album'Rampton' in 2002. In 2003, he appeared on the Probot album, curated by his old friend and former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl.
Dorrian is a member of With the Dead, in which he is joined by former Electric Wizard bassist Tim Bagshaw, along with former Cathedral bassist Leo Smee and former Bolt Thrower drummer Alex Thomas. Their self-titled debut album was released on Rise Above Records in October 2015. Dorrian first used an extreme and ferocious death grunt style of vocal mixed with hardcore screaming in Napalm Death, but adopted a cleaner and more varied style with Cathedral, he presented an award to Napalm Death at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards 2007. Lee Dorrian has appeared on the British television show Never Mind the Buzzcocks as a guest in the line-up round; the round followed a short video segment of Dorrian performing with Napalm Death. He cited among others Cal from Discharge and Sakevi Yokoyama from GISM. 1987 – Scum 1988 – From Enslavement to Obliteration 1988 – The Curse 1989 – Live 1989 – Mentally Murdered 1989 – Napalm Death/S.

Repulsion is an American grindcore band from Flint, founded in 1984. Matt Olivo and Scott Carlson, with bassist Sean MacDonald, formed Tempter in 1984, a metal act covering Bay Area thrash metal bands, such as Slayer and Metallica; the group's sound became infused with hardcore punk when Phil Hines, of Flint hardcore punk band Dissonance, joined as a drummer. They juggled band names, first renaming themselves Ultraviolence and Genocide before recording their first demo in 1984. In spite of their growing popularity in the underground Genocide struggled to survive and faced difficulty maintaining a consistent lineup. In the summer of 1985 Chuck Schuldiner, of pioneering death metal act Death, invited Carlson and Olivo to Florida to complete the Death lineup; the two parties failed to settle on a uniform creative direction and the merger proved short lived. Carlson and Olivo returned to Flint that summer. Local punk Dave'Grave' Hollingshead was recruited as drummer, after Carlson and Olivo saw an article about Hollingshead being arrested for grave robbery.
In 1985 the reformed Genocide recorded the Violent Death demo tape, with Carlson assuming bass duties, resumed playing live locally. In late 1985 Aaron Freeman was invited into the band as a second guitarist. With their line-up fleshed out, Genocide recorded in a studio for the first time to lay down the tracks for what was supposed to be their first album The Stench of Burning Death - it ended up being their third demo. By 1986 Repulsion's trademark style had matured. Repulsion was experimenting with a hammering, static clouded, lo-fi sound, on a level of extreme, touched on by few bands before. To complement the band's sound they penned gruesome lyrics. In 1989 Repulsion's material enjoyed modest, albeit posthumous, exposure when UK grindcore pioneers Carcass distributed a Repulsion compilation titled Horrified on their own Necrosis Records label. With interest in Repulsion rekindled, the band decided to reform in 1990, they resumed playing live with the'classic' Repulsion lineup - Scott Carlson bass and vocals, Aaron Freeman on guitar, Dave Grave on drums.
Repulsion recorded two self-financed demos in 1991: Rebirth, their Final Demo criticised as lacking the drive and intensity of the band's earlier material. That year they managed to release a single on Relapse entitled Excruciation. In spite of new material the band broke up yet again in 1993. Scott Carlson went on to play in Cathedral the rest of the band departed for short-lived projects or returned to everyday life. Relapse re-released Horrified again in 2003, drawing attention to Repulsion once more, prompting the band to resume live performance. In 2004 Repulsion released a live DVD. In 2008, Repulsion opened for At the Gates on their "Suicidal Final Tour" in California, along with Darkest Hour and Municipal Waste. Venom, Slayer and Discharge have been cited in interviews as major influences. Various bands have recorded covers of Repulsion songs, including Napalm Death and Entombed.

Prior to joining Napalm Death, Greenway had worked as an engineer within the motor industry in Birmingham. Greenway's first album with Napalm Death, Harmony Corruption represented a shift in the band's musical style, incorporating a more death metal-oriented sound; the albums that followed this, including Utopia Banished, Emptiness and Diatribes saw the band delve further into the aforementioned style whilst incorporating elements of groove metal. Greenway and Napalm Death parted ways in 1996, with bassist Shane Embury referring to the long unrest, present between Greenway and the remainder of the band.
Greenway joined Extreme Noise Terror to record vocals on their album Damage 381, with Extreme Noise Terror's vocalist Phil Vane joining Napalm Death to record vocals on their album Inside the Torn Apart.

England is a country, part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Wales to Scotland to the north-northwest; the Irish Sea lies west of England and the Celtic Sea lies to the southwest. England is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south; the country covers five-eighths of the island of Great Britain, which lies in the North Atlantic, includes over 100 smaller islands, such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight. The area now called England was first inhabited by modern humans during the Upper Palaeolithic period, but takes its name from the Angles, a Germanic tribe deriving its name from the Anglia peninsula, who settled during the 5th and 6th centuries. England became a unified state in the 10th century, since the Age of Discovery, which began during the 15th century, has had a significant cultural and legal impact on the wider world; the English language, the Anglican Church, English law – the basis for the common law legal systems of many other countries around the world – developed in England, the country's parliamentary system of government has been adopted by other nations.
The Industrial Revolution began in 18th-century England, transforming its society into the world's first industrialised nation. England's terrain is chiefly low hills and plains in central and southern England. However, there is upland and mountainous terrain in the west; the capital is London, which has the largest metropolitan area in both the United Kingdom and the European Union. England's population of over 55 million comprises 84% of the population of the United Kingdom concentrated around London, the South East, conurbations in the Midlands, the North West, the North East, Yorkshire, which each developed as major industrial regions during the 19th century; the Kingdom of England – which after 1535 included Wales – ceased being a separate sovereign state on 1 May 1707, when the Acts of Union put into effect the terms agreed in the Treaty of Union the previous year, resulting in a political union with the Kingdom of Scotland to create the Kingdom of Great Britain. In 1801, Great Britain was united with the Kingdom of Ireland to become the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
In 1922 the Irish Free State seceded from the United Kingdom, leading to the latter being renamed the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The name "England" is derived from the Old English name Englaland, which means "land of the Angles"; the Angles were one of the Germanic tribes that settled in Great Britain during the Early Middle Ages. The Angles came from the Anglia peninsula in the Bay of Kiel area of the Baltic Sea; the earliest recorded use of the term, as "Engla londe", is in the late-ninth-century translation into Old English of Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People. The term was used in a different sense to the modern one, meaning "the land inhabited by the English", it included English people in what is now south-east Scotland but was part of the English kingdom of Northumbria; the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle recorded that the Domesday Book of 1086 covered the whole of England, meaning the English kingdom, but a few years the Chronicle stated that King Malcolm III went "out of Scotlande into Lothian in Englaland", thus using it in the more ancient sense.
According to the Oxford English Dictionary, its modern spelling was first used in 1538. The earliest attested reference to the Angles occurs in the 1st-century work by Tacitus, Germania, in which the Latin word Anglii is used; the etymology of the tribal name itself is disputed by scholars. How and why a term derived from the name of a tribe, less significant than others, such as the Saxons, came to be used for the entire country and its people is not known, but it seems this is related to the custom of calling the Germanic people in Britain Angli Saxones or English Saxons to distinguish them from continental Saxons of Old Saxony between the Weser and Eider rivers in Northern Germany. In Scottish Gaelic, another language which developed on the island of Great Britain, the Saxon tribe gave their name to the word for England. An alternative name for England is Albion; the name Albion referred to the entire island of Great Britain. The nominally earliest record of the name appears in the Aristotelian Corpus the 4th-century BC De Mundo: "Beyond the Pillars of Hercules is the ocean that flows round the earth.
In it are two large islands called Britannia. But modern scholarly consensus ascribes De Mundo not to Aristotle but to Pseudo-Aristotle, i.e. it was written in the Graeco-Roman period or afterwards. The word Albion or insula Albionum has two possible origins, it either derives from a cognate of the Latin albus meaning white, a reference to the white cliffs of Dover or from the phrase the "island of the Albiones" in the now lost Massaliote Periplus, attested through Avienus' Ora Maritima to which the former served as a source. Albion is now applied to England in a more poetic capacity. Another romantic name for England is Loegria, related to the Welsh word for England and made popular by its use in Arthurian legend; the earliest known evidence of human presence in the area now known as England was that of Homo antecessor, dating to approximate
