Lantern Reveals “II: Morphosis” Album Details

Lantern is gearing up to release “II: Morphosis” via Dark Descent Records on March 17th, 2017. The label issued this press release about the band and impending album:

“Since Lantern’s debut full-length album ‘Below’ perfectly got the zeitgeist of the mid-10’s dark and arcane DM revival Dark Descent Records has almost become synonymous for, it would have made perfect sense for those Finns to simply so to speak return to very same cave and lock themselves up down there with no heat nor light for two weeks straight to conjure the same type of pitch black music.

“But this is where you draw the line in between those happy with their little niche and the real artists, destined to expand their horizon no matter what… Fear not, ‘II – Morphosis’ isn’t trying to reach for the light either and still reeks of the ancient metal ov death foul stench. And even if they’ve now officially integrated the three extra members the initial duo had with them since 2011 for live activities and recorded it as a five piece, there’s still here a palpable sense of obscurity throughout those nine songs, as if being seen through a veiled curtain.

“But many actually will probably be quite surprised by how articulate but also strangely melodic the ‘new’ Lantern is. While a track like ‘Cleansing of the Air’ or the epic instrumental ‘Necrotic Epiphanies’ carry a strong thrash influence that can also be found in Necrophilos’ scruffy vocals, the album is first and foremost packed with twisted riffs that spiral on and off that pierce through the thick fog it conjures like razors. But no matter how hectic the whole thing gets, they never loose control, like some kind of bizarre version of Treblinka not led by clueless teenagers but proper musicians determined to get on a short leash the madness that drives them.

“Like on ‘Below’, the album’s brilliantly detailed yet disturbing artwork courtesy of Zbigniew M. BIelak is a collage of various concepts developed in the songs while Dan Lowndes of Resonance Sound Studios took care of the mixing and mastering duties, resulting in an album both daring and unique.”

01. Black Miasma
02. Sleeper of Hypnagog
03. Hosting Yellow Fungi
04. Cleansing of the Air
05. Necrotic Epiphaniesk
06. Transmigration
07. Virgin Damnation
08. Morphosis
09. Lucid Endlessness

The Morningside Streams New Track “Out Of Nest”

BadMoodMan Music, a sub-label of Solitude Productions, just released The Morningside’s “Yellow” this month, and now a new track from that release has come online. Check out third track “Out Of Nest” below. The label also comments:

“Since the very first album, it became apparent that Russian band The Morningside are on to something special. By blending genres like death, doom, and black metal, similar to Katatonia but more atmospheric, they’ve come up with a sound that’s absolutely beautiful and enthralling. It’s heavy but not crushing, the melodies remain ever so fragrant and the music sinuous in a graceful way.

“This album sees the band incorporate more progressive and even folkish and post-metal elements to make sure it’s fulfilling its ambition and at the same time not straying away from the established sound. Every song is like a different chapter – connected but different in a special way. Influenced by a Kurt Vonnegut book, the yellow tram on the cover is symbolic of the travails of the central character and also life – it’s up to us to keep it interesting and memorable. The album serves as a wonderful soundtrack to life and its infinite vagaries.”
