Right: Yeah, I know these guys look like D-bags. But give them a chance, dammit!
I was introduced to the sickeningly sweet Black/Death Metal of Mourning a couple years ago by some anonymous Hessian at the now-defunct Pound in SF (great bands, but what a shitty venue it was!). Dude was just cruising around, handing out free CDs all, like, "hey man, check out some sweet Metal".
Well, I'd like to take a moment to thank you, Anonymous Hessian, for turning me on to some epic shit. Mourning (who, I found out after a little research, reside in New Jersey) play grinding, blastbeat-ridden odes to hatred and insanity, 20 solid minutes of absolute aural malevolence.
