Staff review by

Australia might not have so many doom metal bands, but has given birth to the almighty disEMBOWELMENT and has some really well-known bands like the atmospheric doom metal band Avrigus, the theatric gothic/doom metal act Virgin Black and the cult funeral doom metal beast Mournful Congregation.

During 2005 Mournful Congregation managed to return with a new release (which in fact consists of tracks composed during the 1994-2004 era), the almighty 4-track full-length album "The Monad Of Creation", but hey, don't let the number of the songs full you, it's funeral doom we're talking about, so I guess you got the secret message that the album will accompany you for a bit more than an hour with its lurking melodies. What? Did I just say melodies? Oh yes, I said it and it's true, Mournful Congregation have a melodious approach on funeral doom. No, this doesn't mean that they are a sold out band, they are slower than the process of lung cancer, unearthly and powerful when they need to, but a sense of melody on the guitar work is always present to add a beautiful tone in the overall mourning atmosphere.
