The brand new full-length, Grieve, from London-based atmospheric stoner doom outfit Morga Tang is a full-on master class in fuzzed-out sludge. We’re talking four tracks and 40+ minutes of overdriven grime, with vocals as gnarled and rotten as the six-string damage being inflicted. It lurches, it rumbles, it pads glacially along with only passing glimpses of relief from the heaviness. And to cap it all off, the band—Adam Asquith (drums/vocals), Alex Clarke (guitar), Lewis Crane (guitar), James Atha (bass)—execute an epic twenty-minute finale that’s as ominous as it is beautiful.
Grieve was recorded and mixed by Mike Bew at Foel Studio, and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. It will be issued on CD, vinyl and digitally via Majestic Mountain on Oct 6. You can place your preorder here.
This is what vocalist/drummer Adam Asquith had to say about the new album:
“With Grieve, we wanted to create something huge and heavy, but also gorgeous, textured and atmospheric. Incorporating both massive, aggressive wall of sound sections and more pensive, stripped back ambient instrumentals, I think we have hit that sweet spot – something anguished and anxious, crumbling and dangerous, yet eerily beautiful and oozing with a love for life itself.”
