Staff review by

It would seem that by now, 9 years after the last official release of new music from the Nephilim camp, the fans' expectations and the general disbelief in the prompt emergence of anything from Carl McCoy would be associated with hype so enormous that no matter how good the release would be, it would never be able to be satisfactory. Well, I think it is enough if I say that this album actually does not disappoint and proves to be well worth the long wait. This alone should be enough information for people familiar with this band to make them drop everything and buy Mourning Sun the moment it is released. Nevertheless, I feel a bit of elaboration is needed on my part, so here I go.

Rating: 8 This album is so different from anything I've listened to - love the electronic and ambiant varibles

Rating: 9 Once again, an album with incredibly atmospheric songs, though this time there is a lot more melody than on 'Zoon'. Interesting how they've been sounding this good for so long...

Rating: 7 It's like a heavy version of The Sisters Of Mercy. Pretty cool.
