It was my birthday and to celebrate I decided to go and post this sending of comrade LKS I was slightly uncertain about. Thanks to our collaborator as usual! This is Morrigan, continuation of one of my favourite bands Mayhemic Truth, and an advance tape for their debut album from '01. You might recall the Mayhemic Truth rehearsal I posted not that long ago? Well, this rip was sent in the same time and I hesitated slightly to post this as it is not really that different from the final album, unmastered so the sound has a little variation and pauses between the songs are notably longer. Please note the Blizzard advance tape seen on the cover scan above is not included here!!
If you've heard the album, this is all familiar grounds then. Very minor differences. In case you haven't or are completely unfamiliar with the band I guess you could just as well start with this. Morrigan play black metal very much influenced by Bathory (both main eras) and actually The Arrival of Dana is a reworking of A Fine Day to Die made in tribute to Quorthon. The songs roughly divide into fast paced old school black metal tracks and more midtempo or slow epic songs which feature clean choirs while the main vocal is otherwise a mostly unintelligible (the fast bits) black metal rasp/squak. I've already stated my preference for the more epic tracks but both sides are essential parts of the whole. Recommended for fellow Morrigan/Mayhemic Truth enthusiasts as well as those curious to find out more or on the look for Bathory replacements. We will resume our regular programming after this, with Brazilian material as voted.
