Mourning Beloveth: Rust & Bone
Ireland’s veteran doom/death crew make an evolutionary leap
Two years on from the release of their benchmark album Formless, Mourning Beloveth are pushing the envelope further still with the stunning Rust & Bone.
Its five tracks intended as one mammoth piece of music, this opus is the Irish doomlords’ most ambitious and diverse offering to date. Sombre and sinister, bleak and beautiful, a hand-built acoustic guitar weaves its way in and out of proceedings, adding extra textures to the Kildare quintet’s brooding threnodies, while lyrically they borrow from the works of Yeats and Beckett.
