Melancolic gothic/doom with clean and grunted male vocals. Atmospheric, yet heavy. The music has clear similarities to My Dying Bride....

Mourning Beloveth : Dust

This album approaches the strict definition of doom/death metal. We hear very slow, distorted guitar melodies, deep drumming and a very brutal grunt, sometimes alternated with clean vocals. Similarities can be found with Novembers Doom's and Paramaecium's music, if you leave out flutes and keyboards. Sometimes, older tracks of My Dying Bride or Anathema come to mind.

The tracks are long (5 tracks for 53 minutes plus one hidden instrumental track of 3 minutes at the end), and they all have their slower and faster, more brutal parts. Needless to say is that the ultraslow, tearing, sickening parts are more important. The lyrics deal with nothing but pain, suffering, and death at the end of our transitory lives.

I haven't heard any other releases of this band, if there are any, but I guess I can say that there seem to be more doom bands around than one would expect. We can only hope that Mourning Beloveth, being an Irish band, gives existence and growth to another scene in the world of doom-metal.

All freaks of slow and heavy doom/death: this is up your alley. Get this release. Get more info at: http://www.mourningbeloveth.com, or e-mail the band: adrian@mourningbeloveth.com
