20 Buck Spin presents the long-awaited deluxe vinyl edition of The Book Of Kings, the sprawling, lauded, 2011-released album by Australian funeral doom purveyors, MOURNFUL CONGREGATION, this week issuing details and preorders for the new pressing.

Early in 2018 MOURNFUL CONGREGATION dropped their first album in more than six years, The Incubus Of Karma. The widely acclaimed album was heralded as another landmark for the extreme/funeral doom genre, adding perhaps the brightest jewel to the band’s crown. The band travelled to both the US and Europe once again to administer last rites to the faithful.

Back in 2011 the band released another monument to melancholy, the stunningly grandiose The Book Of Kings. Landing in Decibel’s Top 40 albums that year, the album was the pinnacle of their progressively-minded dirge to that point and includes what may be the most epic track in a catalog that defines the word, the thirty-plus-minute title track that weaves a tale of regality through the life, death, crowning, and dethronement of nameless kings.

Having begun the year with MOURNFUL CONGREGATION, 20 Buck Spin now sees fit to bookend the 2018 campaign with this gorgeous vinyl edition of The Book Of Kings. Having been requested by fans for several years, this version of the album is now presented on two slabs of vinyl housed in a gatefold cover featuring the original artwork and accented with metallic bronze print, along with a beautiful, full-sized, twelve-page booklet.

Ok, here’s another great Australian band to talk about hot on the heels of my review of Cauldron Black Ram’s latest. Concrescence Of The Sophia from Mournful Congregation may be a stop gap of sorts between full lengths, but there is still nearly a full half our of weight of the world bearing top notch doom here to feast hungry hearts upon. The June 2014 starts off with a bang, kind of reminding me of how Nuerosis wasted no time stating their intent with the charge of Given To The Rising‘s opening title track back in ‘o7. This Mournful Congregation two song release opens without the same sense of aggro assault as the aforementioned Nuerosis cut, but is similar in that from the gate you are dropped right into the murk of guitar (though in fairness it takes a few measures for the drums to lurch in).

Concrescence Of The Sophia is sure to please current fans of the band and 20 Buck Spin‘s gold and splatter vinyl looks downright gorgeous. This two song affair is nonetheless a voyage through longing, uncertainty and yes, mourning. It truly sounds like a funureal rite at times as Damon Good’s leads the band through scorched earth movements at a beyond ponderous pace that is perfect for maximum soul ache. The pained guitars and occasional soaring high note stretched out to peak sustain adds to the epic feel of deep contemplation and at times, helplessness.
