H.L. MOURNSPIRE are a good example for doom metal with death and black influences: Heavy, but full of emotions like suffering and despair. In the strongest moments it comes close to My Dying Bride ("Monument") or Novembers Doom. The variety of vocals (growling, screaming, clean and recitative) is extraordinary and all styles are well performed. Musical, not all songs come to the point and I would like to hear more repetitive parts or hooklines. But hey, it is a debut and for sure a convincing one! Favorite track: Monument.

Johnn Harbringer Massive-sounding Blackened Doom with tons of melody. This album will drag your soul into the darkest depth of the pit of despair. Definitely a must-hear for fans of bands like Mourning Beloveth, Dark Funeral, Draconian, Ahab, and Borknagar.

Track Name: An Empty Storm is the End
When will I see the end of this road
Leading me away from you all
I have disgraced myself
When will I see the end

And as I look forward,
My back burns from regret
What can I say?
If you would just hear me…

When will I see the end of this road
Leading me away from you all
I have disgraced—disgraced myself
When will I see you again?

Cast out
I walk in exile
May the sea swallow me
Lost is my heart, Lost is my soul
May deserts bury me--Time, erase me
Cast out (My will, my heart, my soul)
I walk in exile

I see it now… the end
It has a face… No eyes, no faith
Something I cannot explain, but it draws near
I shield my view from an empty storm,
I realize I don’t deserve this.

Cast out
I walk in exile
May the sea swallow me
Lost is my heart, Lost is my soul
Track Name: Throes
I can’t get any closer
To a source of warmth and care
Pure suffering
You are the parting sun
Your glory fades
And when you return,
I only expect to be robbed of hope again
I have fallen into madness

How much longer can I endure?
Deep in the throes
I long for repose
Exhausted dreams
I’m torn at the seams
I’ve wilted away
What can I do?

Just when I thought you had left forever
You return again, lighting my face with joy

I am your slave
This world is my grave
The perfect hell
You are the parting sun
Your glory fades

You come when you please,
But you fail to realize
We’ve fallen together
You are not free
You are the parting sun
I am endless space
Your glory fades
You cannot resist me

Deep in the throes
I long for repose
Exhausted dreams
I’m torn at the seams
I’ve wilted away
What can I do
Without you?
Track Name: Infamy of Blackened Crowns
Fan the blazes of inevitability
With unattainable hopes
They watch me from the walls
Naked—exposed
What is life without trust?
Will they ever die, and turn to dust?
I am doomed... trapped
Until the end of time

Bloodless, ashen skin
Glares that turn hair gray
Appetite for slumber
A communion of sleep
The infamy of blackened crowns
Rule the living
“Weaklings born to die”

The world is a bottomless trench
Where damaged souls climb
To reach the surface,
And feel the heat of a fabled sun
That may not be there
This cruel idea is strength
To the worn minds
Who cling unknowingly

Unmerciful lords
I seek thy blind eye
Bury me deep in shadows
Forget me, leave me
Please...
I will sleep forever
Out of the light
End my suffering
Track Name: Enamored
Shine the light of truth,
Upon a shadow long and pale
O greatest destroyer,
I bow to thee never

Ravager
Extend your sickened hand
Enrapture us all

Stand aside
She has arrived
Trumpets full of gale
Eyes grow bright
Enrapturing sight
Amidst a shadow, long and pale

Shine the light of truth
On her darkest of dreams
On her bent realities
And they will shatter

She weighs us down
In a sorrowful fog
Her eyes… her dark eyes

Shine
Shine the light
The light of truth
On her darkest of dreams
On her bent realities
And they will shatter
A delicate balance
A fragile life
Tip the scales
Dominance, power
Delusional, dream swept tempest

Shine the light of truth
Upon a shadow long and pale
O greatest destroyer,
I bow to thee never
Track Name: The Truest of Lamentations
Tearful moments
Brought on by grief
My descending mind drowns
I carry with me
Gilded sorrow
On my deepest elation

I still see you
Right in front of me
My love
My everything

We lied in embrace
Eyes passed through mine
You faded before me
And all I could do was watch

Slow is the air
Stagnant... it strangles me
My spirit wrung to die

Slow is the air
It strangles me
The truest of lamentations

Exhausted winter
I must remember
There is life after love,
but if I dare to live
I will forget why
Track Name: Resplendent Doves Moan
Fear holds the hand of a loving caress
Lips in contempt shout in silence
Unearthed
The worm welters
Unearthed
A morsel for the dove
The wheel counters round

Nightfall, midnight, dawn
Make a wish upon a belief
Demands on this love you feel

(This love you feel)

You fail to see around this bend
What dangers lie ahead?
With all that’s unsaid
Do you dare to pray?

Isn’t it beautiful?
This place you’ve never seen
Was it easy to drop from the clouds...
The perilous descent?
Was it simple to take the dive...
When realities bent?
I’m sorry, my dear
The rot has traveled too deep
Farewell...

Nightfall, midnight, dawn
Nightfall… nightfall

Lost,
Sleepless one?
Wound thorns grow dull
And the morning forever dim
Unfamiliar lands,
Deepest one?
I’m afraid you’ve outstayed your welcome
Track Name: Monument
I asked for its name
And it said unto me,
“You know my name,
You've always known.”
Then any sense of my power
Dissolved into its awful form

It travels in reflections
A vision of despair,
Measureless sorrow
I stood in its shadow
As the unsound ate reason
Terror subdued me,
and it wallowed

A simple look
Crippled me with grief
And I knew
This was the monument
That causes our pain
The pain of living
The monument
That causes our pain

Skies so dark
And the rain
It never ends
Pooling sadness
Faded daylight in Payne’s grey
This vision of misery grew
The way it split the sky
Its peak pierced my chest
My breath tapered off
Like the unsympathetic apex
The crushing presence of its aura
Draws color from the world around
Desires ebb, I fall, I cannot move

A simple look
Crippled me with grief
And I knew
This was the monument
That causes our pain
The pain of living
The monument
That causes our pain
Track Name: Wreathed in Ivy
Unspoken words
Burn like winter fires
Deep in my
Hollow chest
A dark concealment clings
To my stone dead walls of shame
It coils my body
Stripping my spirit away

Everlasting pain
The burden is too much to bear
The bellowing Earth
Roars around me
Drown my senses
In the stream that carries me
Waters, black as pitch:
How can one dread your gleam?
Yet yearn to be cradled
In your eternal arms

He who dwells
Betwixt the sills
The cold wind blows
It calls and crows
Of oil adorned
And torch upturned
The vast old void
Approaches thee
May comfort guide
The departing

This grueling trial never ends
I pound my ravaged head
Against a column of failure
Wreathed in ivy
I bind my suffering
What remains of my will
Smolders before Elysian dawn
The tethers give way
I commence celebration
Take me now

He who dwells
Betwixt the sills
The cold wind blows
It calls and crows
Of oil adorned
And torch upturned
The vast old void
Approaches thee
May comfort guide
The departing

The cold wind beats upon my ears
and subdues my face
Our distance pushes on
The upturned torch signals my life to death
I drink from the humble cup
To finally escape the
Liminals of profound loss
