After more than six years since The Book Of Kings, Mournful Congregation, Australia's stone pillars of funereal dirge, present their regal fourth full-length, The Incubus Of Karma. In these intervening years the band has made several trips to the U.S. and Europe, released the mini-album Concrescence Of The Sophia and meticulously crafted this new masterpiece. Everything that has made them the unchallenged masters of extreme/funeral doom is here: the agonizing weight of extreme doom riffs, bitterly somber dissonance, a painterly attention to detail and arrangement, and vocals summoned from the deepest, darkest depths. And as with each album before it, the band expands upon their unique progressive tendencies, weaving beautifully constructed solos and lengthy virtuoso interludes into a bleak-yet-intricate tapestry of stately grandeur. Twenty-five years into their existence, Mournful Congregation persist in refining and perfecting their immortal art.
