Mourning Beloveth - New Update From The Band

Irish death/doom masters Mourning Beloveth have recently released a band update. Among other things, the band plans to release a new album next year.

Band update: "It's been a while since an update, as (un)usual, and we have been quite busy. We played a good dirty set at The Burning Oak Festival in Cork with Triptykon and we have been working on a few gigs for next year as I am sure some of you will have noticed with the Roadburn announcement. And to mark the occasion of the 10 year anniversary of The Sullen Sulcus album we will be releasing it on vinyl for the first time and playing the whole album as our set in Roadburn, some of the songs have not been played since we recorded them so it should be an interesting night.

As for the album, well, we are crossing the ocean to Foel in Wales to record album 5 with a working title of Formless from October 15 to 25. The album should be released through Grau (along with a vinyl version) in January 2013 and the plan is to hit the road from March to the end. The album will be a double album and will have 6-7 songs with an approx. running time of 75 minutes and there may even be an acoustic song to get your head around. The album is loosely dealing with the grey matter of life we wade through each day, how there is no structure to anything anymore, nothing is defined and words are just words but have no meaning, be it in public or private life.

Song titles - Disc 1: 01. Theories Of Old Bones, 02. Ethics On The Precipice, 03. Old Rope, 04. Formless, 05. Unnamed; Disc 2: 01. Transmissions (working title), 02. Unnamed or unfinished.

We have a new artist I am sure some of you are familiar with, Peter Rees, and for once I think the artwork will be finished around the same time as the album instead of having a six month struggle after the album is recorded to find something. If we were to compare the new stuff with our previous album while ADFTA (A Disease For The Ages) had an overall oppressive feel with repetitive riffs where each song could easily be part of any other song on the album Formless, while each song is part of the overall concept and the first 3 songs bleed into each other, each song will stand on it's own. So here's to the new year... be sure to wait slowly and don't be tempted to download or this could be our last..."

I haven't listened to Mourning Beloveth in ages...I may very well delve into their discography once more in time before the next album is released.

Wow first time I've seen a band threaten to quit if their album is pirated.

Oh, freaking sweet news. It's been a while since their last album, so I'll look forward to this. Also, I rarely download anyways, so I wouldn't make an exception here, since the band requested it not be downloaded.

I hope their fans will have some respect for the band and try to buy the album instead of only downloading it.
Best news I've read in a while.
