Mourners Lament - Unbroken Solemnity

Maybe you don't know this Chilean band but most likely you know the name of the Candlemass song taken from the "Nightfall" album. Keeping in mind that there are only three songs on this EP but the running time is 32 minutes. So any idea what kind of style they play?

Right, they play doom with a touch of death. Low growling vocals on a whispering tone of voice and changed with a cleaner one. Because of the slow tempo Mourners Lament is creating atmospheric floating melodies that create a sense of tragedy and despair. Guitars that do simple riffing with nice soloing in the last track. No overdone elements like keyboard soundscapes but just pure slow motion heavy and intense doom. So lay on your bed, close you eyes and let yourself sink into the foggy depths of desolation.
