Staff pick by
Daniell

01.11.2011 If you know the band, you know what to expect. They deliver what you expect and then some. Less than 5% of metal population will appreciate this morose journey. It's better to be among the few than among many...

Also some people on Last.fm saying that it's gonna be "reminiscent of both The Monad of Creation and The June Frost" and 80 minutes long.

I'll wait for the new Esoteric to make that decision, but Mournful Congregation sure do look like a likely candidate.

Best Funeral Doom Metal Album of the History in my opinion. It's fucking great.

Rating: 7 What the piss bros, Colosseum definitely crushes any of these guys. June Frost was much better IMO. The 33 minute tracks seems kind of pointless in the end...

I agree with you there.

Rating: 9 Who put that totally weird line-up there? It's totally off and should read as follows:

Damon Good - rhythm, lead and acoustic guitars, vocals, keys, bass on track three
Justin Hartwig - lead, rhythm and acoustic guitars
Ben Newsome - bass
Adrian Bickle - drums

It's the way the site's set up to read the line-up. If a musician leaves in 2009 and one joins the band in the same year, both will appear in the line-up for any 2009 releases unless the album is edited manually.

It's quite a pain in the ass, really.

Rating: 8 I voted for this album, despite that it is very long, if you are really concentrate is hard feeling bored, it music are intense and filled of truly "doom" sensations, beautiful and persistent harmonies and very emotional guitar solos. When you are hearing funeral doom, just think that monotony is generally in your mind because in albums like this you cannot find it

  This was my 2011 vote for Extreme Doom category.
It just slightly beat out Esoteric, "The Waterless Streams" was the tie breaker.

Wonderful... I put Alkerdeel's debut and demo in the Morinde's box. It's nice when the boxes are extra big for that.

Rating: 8 I would rate it 8 just because of that acoustic song. The rest of album is so damn good. Good to see a funeral doom metal band which does not sound much like the others.
