In Mourning – “Garden of Storms”

In Mourning is back with Garden of Storms, their 5th album full of the progressive melodic death metal they are known for.

Metal music from Sweden has gotten to the point where just originating from that country means a quality release and bands like In Mourning is why that statement rings true.  Now on their fifth album, In Mourning released their first one, Shrouded Divine, in 2008, followed two years later by Monolith.  Somewhat surprisingly, the band has had a relatively stable lineup over their greater than 10yr existence, but has managed to go through a couple of drummers prior to Joakim Strandber Nilsson starting in 2018.  At one point, Garden of Storms was #8 on Metal Storm’s top 20 albums of 2019 and was a #53 on the Heatseekers top 200 soon after release showing the critical and fan acceptance of the work.

Given that we are talking about progressive, melodic death metal, it should come as no surprised that the seven song album clocks in around 50 minutes in length, so there is definitely a lot to talk about here.  “Black Storm” opens up innocently enough with some clean guitar chords, but the calm is short-lived as there are short bursts of the full band coming in with a heavy riff and pounding drums, setting the tone for the song.  Tobias Netzell’s deep scream layered into the background is a good touch to the sound, which comes through in a well-mixed blast of noise.  The melodic shines through in the main riff of the song as well in the more atmospheric-like moments that also feature Netzell showing some clean vocals to complement the growled death vocals.  Being my first introduction to the band, I can’t help but be impressed with the drum work from Joakim Strandberg Nilsson who keeps a simple, slower pounding rhythm when needed but can explode into faster, approaching blast beat rhythms to drive the song along.

Known for his futuristic synthscapes and elaborate electronic compositions, Scandroid reveals a different side to his retro roots on the energetic, post-punk style offering, ‘Everywhere You Go.’ Marked by a crisp rock rhythm and a driving bass line, the song is one of the most immediate and no-frills creations in Scandroid’s entire discography. ‘Everywhere You Go‘ is available to stream on all major platforms today, and the song is an instant-grat download for fans who pre-order the artist’s upcoming new album, “The Light.”

‘Everywhere You Go’ follows the synthpop sounds of the recent single ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ and displays Scandroid’s ability to pull from diverse ‘80s genres and blend them into a remarkable form of retro-futuristic music. The full release of “The Light” is scheduled for December 2019 from independent synthwave label FiXT Neon.

Symphonic power metal band Ravenworrd has signed a worldwide deal with Rockshots Records to release their one-time studio album, ‘Transcendence’, on January 31.

Inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe’s novel ‘The Raven‘, the Milan, Italy, based band was originally formed in 2007 by the mind of keyboardist and composer Davide Scuteri (Choirs Of Veritas). After several years of activity, which included a self-titled demo, the band went on a brief hiatus, re-grouping in 2016 when singer Chiara Tricarico (Sound Storm, Moonlight Haze), drummer Michele Olmi (Chronosfear, Skeleeton) and bass/guitar player Cesare Ferrari (Choirs Of Veritas) joined the band, in order to create a one-time studio album that embodies the whole history of the band.
