Album Review

Despite their extremely competent musicianship and solid songwriting skills, obscure doom metal outfit Mourn is perhaps best remembered for the presence of a female singer within their ranks, a true rarity in the doom metal field. Carried forth by singer Caroline Wilson's highly operatic style, the band's doleful anthems of woe acquire an even more dramatic quality, particularly reminiscent of early Candlemass. Powerful, but not all that flexible, her voice still manages to provide an interesting contrast for the group's ungodly de-tuned riffs, a combination which is best exemplified on the surging "Iron Sky" and the almost overwhelmingly heavy "Children of the Circle." Somewhat less inventive tracks like "Drowning" and "Through These Eyes" see the album taking a nose-dive, quality-wise halfway through, but Mourn manage to recover in time for a strong finale, delivered via the surprising acoustics of "After All" and yet another excellent riff-wielding behemoth called "Forever More." All in all, a pretty solid doom metal album for serious fans to seek out.

Customer Reviews

get it for the demo versions...

i still have the original cassette demo "forever more" that i got from the band at a gig at the london marquee back in the good old days. i listened to it over and over and over again, and it still sounds good now. so when they released a proper album i was very excited - only to be VERY disapointed! they re-worked a couple of songs and the production was bloody TERRIBLE. so its good to see the demo included on this re-issue. if you already know Mourn then i guess you'll know what i mean - whether you agree or not. if you dont know Mourn, but you like early Cathedral, Solitude Aeturnus, Confessor .. etc... then i highly recomend you get the demo tracks here. great memories of a once great band!

A Blast From The Past

When I first searched iTunes for Mourn, I was almost certain it would come up with nothing. So finding them here in all their 90's glory almost cheered me up. The demo tracks are bl**dy brilliant, and what I'll remember them for. Buy these first!
