Mournful Congregation Record New Track For Split 7"

Mournful Congregation is currently in the process of recording a new track for a split 7" record with fellow Australian doom metal band Stone Wings. This track will be entitled 'Descent Of The Flames', with the Stone Wings track being entitled 'Ascent Of The Flames'.

This is somewhat of a concept 7" with both sets of lyrics being penned by Chuck Keller (Order From Chaos, Vulpecula, Ares Kingdom). With corresponding artwork and musical parallels, this will truly be a unique and one-of-a-kind jewel in the doom metal annals.

It is unsure as to which label it will be released through at this stage, but expect its release late in 2006.

Damon from Mournful Congregation has recently lent his doomed vocals to a Fallen hymn. Of course this is the funeral doom band driven by Funeral drummer Anders Eek. The track is inextricably extreme and the results of this collaboration have proven to be truly doomed. What's more is that the lyrics to this hymn were penned by the late Einar Fredriksen of Funeral, making this a very meaningful track indeed. More news as to how it shall be released is soon to come.

There is also talk of a four-way split 12" LP in the works with three other extreme doom metal bands from across the globe including Loss. The artwork for this release will be handled by Away of Voivod. These collaborations will serve as the perfect predescessor to Mournful Congregation's next album which is set for a 2007 release.
