Grind Magus Holy fuck, I know funeral doom was a bleak genre but this album begins with maximum bleakness.

It is sad and yet so beautiful,
It's creates a state that felt like home to me.
It's mesmerizing at some point and calming at another but all in all it's awe inspiring.

Easily one of the best examples of doom in aural form. Favorite track: The Catechism Of Depression.

Xenoforge The most consistent band I know of. and one of the best metal bands to come out of Aus. Every single record has been a masterpiece. I'm not sure which album I enjoy more, Book Of Kings or Monad Of Creation... Favorite track: The Book Of Kings.

about

Released by 20 Buck Spin in North America.

In 2018 Mournful Congregation dropped their first album in more than six years, ‘The Incubus Of Karma’. The widely acclaimed album was heralded as yet another landmark for the Extreme / Funeral Doom genre, adding perhaps the brightest jewel to the band’s crown. The band travelled to both the US and Europe once again to administer last rites to the faithful.

Back in 2011 the band released another monument to melancholy, the stunningly grandiose ‘The Book Of Kings’. Landing in Decibel’s Top 40 albums that year the album was the pinnacle of their progressively-minded dirge to that point and includes what may be the most epic track in a catalog that defines the word, the 30+ minute title track that weaves a tale of regality through the life, death, crowning and dethronement of nameless kings.

Having begun the year with Mournful Congregation, 20 Buck Spin now sees fit to bookend the 2018 campaign with this gorgeous vinyl edition of ‘The Book Of Kings’. A gatefold 2xLP featuring the original artwork and accented with metallic bronze print and a beautiful full-sized 12 page booklet.
