MOURNING BELOVETH To Release 'Formless' Next Month

January 8, 2013

Five years after the oppressive and bleak "A Disease For The Ages", Irish death/doom metal band MOURNING BELOVETH returns with its new album, "Formless", on February 22 via Grau Music. The CD will be released as a double-CD and double-LP.

Recorded with Chris Fielding in Foel Studios, "Formless" "sees the band return on top of their game," according to a press release. "The organic, heavy production lends an almost eerie calm to proceedings and yet has some of the bleakest acoustic passages ever heard. From the haunting opener, 'Theories Of Old Bones', through the epic 'Ethics On The Precipice' to the five-minute bile-filled 'Old Rope', MOURNING BELOVETH definitely know their strengths but this time round have worked on their weaknesses and in so doing have created an album that is challenging and yet remains forever rooted in the doom/death genre. Lyrically dealing with the inner turmoil each and every one of us go through, dealing with a world of poison, insanity and nightmares, and yet scrapes at the surface of reality, a reality that nobody is sure of anymore. It is a journey from the cold sweating centre of the skull to the scratching edges of a murky world where every human element is boiled away. A world where nobody seems to listen anymore, where all we seem to live for is pleasure, where all we will be remembered for is what we destroyed. These are brutal times."

01. Theories of Old Bones
02. Ethics on the Precipice
