Elton Dean passed; metal at PopMatters

RIP Elton Dean.

I was rather surprised to see The Gathering’s Mandylion garner a review at PopMatters today — not only does prog-metal seem outside the realm of that site, but they also only review new releases, and Mandylion is over a decade old. Well, turns out there’s a 10th anniversary special edition release. Cover art looks really nice and the second disc of bonus material sounds interesting (along that vein, I still have to get the recent 2CD release Accessories: Rarities B-Sides). Good review, too, worth a read.
