MORNE – shadows – CD digipackCD digipackprofound lore records2013
With “Shadows” the Massachusetts apocalyptic doom crust metal monolith have delivered their most engaging album to date. A much darker and more introspective sonic monolith than their previous releases, namely their “Untold Wait” debut and its “Asylum” successor, “Shadows” sees MORNE create a much more doomier and introspective work. More brooding, melodic, while bringing the heaviness factor to a new level, “Shadows” is an album that harnesses an uncanny atmosphere. While more introverted and more stripped down, yet still encapsulating a vast and mighty sound picture, “Shadows” still presents itself as the soundtrack to where we witness oceans engulfing entire cities and leaving entire wastelands barren and desolate.
