Mournful Congregation - The June Frost (2009)

This Australian band always lures me into their depressive atmosphere as soon as I started listening to their albums, and The June Frost is no exception. Released 4 years after their last full length album, it was well worth the wait.

The album consists of 4 super tracks that take you into the depths of depression and don’t let go. At least one of the track always tries to break the Guiness world record of the longest song ever composed and here they clock one at 17 minutes, which is a tradition of funeral doom bands as well.

The music as always is perfectly layered with the deep slow guitars on top of some greatly slow paced and perfectly structured drumming. The vocals are stellar as always the prefect type of growls for this genre. The first track however in my opinion was kind of weak and did not contribute much to the overall feeling of the album, but the rest of the tracks are funeral doom metal at it’s best.

This marks another brilliant release from Mournful Congregation and it serves as a reminder that sometimes playing the same style of music without changes is the way to go for some bands.
