MOURNING CLOAK "no visible light" LP
adagio830 nr 107

credits

released January 5, 2015

Greensboro, NC’s Mourning Cloak, made up of members of Torch Runner, Graf Orlock & Braveyoung (Giant). No Visible Light clocks in at just over 33 minutes of crushing riffs, devastating beats and thunderous vocals.

“No Visible Light.” The title is apt, because this is an ominous cloud blocking the sun, raining down charcoal dust, black mud, and infant ash on us all.
Their Facebook page refers to their music as “funeral doom/punk,” but I only hear the former in this track. But this doesn’t sulk through the cemetery, it grooves hard enough to split the catacombs in half, releasing the crypt bats into the air. After the quickly dissipating opening ambience the guitars crawl from open graves and shake the rust off their bones with godless black-and-blues riffs. There is suck a thick layer of slime and sludge on this song that it reminds me of that barrier of grime and giant centipedes Indiana Jones’ love interest sticks her hand through in Temple of Doom. If you don’t get that reference, here it is in non-geek language: This song is nasty and unpleasant in the most sadistically delightful ways possible. The vocalist sounds like he’s plummeting into a bottomless pit, shaking hands with the devil to make a pact to finally break his fall. This is some seriously bleak stuff that fans of Bongzilla and Cough should feverishly inhale. ( mister growl )

Track Name: no visible light
No visible light
Black hole of humanity
Forever sleeps
Viral culture
Destructive tradition

Inactive Sun
Carries in the frost
Our silence is present
Frozen tongue
Keeps the Earth cold
Our fire burns through the darkness

Inactive Sun
Carries in the frost
Our fault is absent
Frozen tongue
Bares the blame
Barren fields
Will fall under flames

Beyond the physical
Catalyst of oppression
Burn in silence
It carries no weight

Black hole of humanity
Forever sleeps
Viral culture
Destructive tradition

Conditioned existence
Forever sleeps
Forced ascension
Witness progress
Track Name: ersosion
Suspended in blackness
Unversed in secrets of the Sun
Bound to the Earth
I never sought out the sky

Grey skies cascading
Burrow underneath
Choking on the soil
I never sought out the sky

No need for air
All we need is vision

Asleep
Erosion through routine

Bow to the birth of the drought
Conceived in the knowledge of our thirst
Track Name: white halos
Hear the word before eyes open
Guided before you feel the earth
Follow the cloud to their end
Golden crowns shroud silver tongues

Erode under white halos

The wind is not owned
Keep your eyes to the ground

Sleep as the sky
Sleep as it burns

Lay raised hands to rest
Their breath holds no truth
Taste of blood in our mouths
Black forest rises from scorched earth

Erode under white halos
The wind is not owned
Erode under white halos
Keep your eyes to the ground
