MORNE "Shadows" CD
A co-release between Armageddon Label and Morne, the vinyl version of Morne's third full length "Shadows". This is the CD version on Profound Lore. With influences ranging from doom metal and classic rock all the way to progressive and chamber music, Morne's unique brand of post-sludge / crust is unrelentingly heavy and cinematic in scope. The Boston group attracted widespread attention in the underground metal and punk scenes with their 2009 debut album Untold Wait, most notably earning an endorsement from Darkthrone themselves. It helped that the group's lineup features guitarist Jeff Hayward formerly of two well respected Boston bands, Grief and Disrupt. Their followup, 2011's Asylum, was a sprawling exercise in monolithic heaviness, pushing their sound even further and garnering significant critical acclaim. Morne's third full-length, Shadows, is an even colder and bleaker outing marked by crawling tempos and colossal atmospherics. Melodic and morose, the album is infused with a new sense of doom, with moments reminiscent of Evoken, Mournful Congregation or the now defunct Morgion.
