More info:
Mournful Congregation is from Adelaide, Australia and was formed in late 1993. Throughout the 90′s they recorded two demo tapes, and one full length album, which would only be officially released in 2002. From the beginning they dedicated themselves to writing “Extreme Doom Metal”, utilising extra-slow tempos, down-tuned heaviness and multiple guitar harmonies for the aim of creating depressing, epic and mournful music. With these recordings they slowly spread through the underground metal scene, mostly via tape trading.
In 2005 their second full length, “The Monad of Creation” was released through Weird Truth Productions (JAP) , which solidified their dedication to “Funeral Doom”. 2009 saw the release of their third full length, “The June Frost” also through Weird Truth (JAP) and Ostra Records (FRA). At this point the band played live for the first time ever in their career, starting with an Australian tour, and then moving onto play a 17-date tour throughout Europe.
In late 2011, they released their fourth full length, “The Book of Kings” through 20 Buck Spin (US), Osmose Productions (FRA), Weird Truth (JAP) and Ostra Records (FRA), and subsequently toured the US West Coast. In 2012, they once again toured the West Coast of the US, comprising of 11 dates and a performance at the Stella Natura Festival in California.
