To The Night Unknown is the forthcoming full-length from Boston-based doom unit MORNE. Set for release September 7th via Armageddon Label as well as and the band’s own label MORNE Records, the eight-track follow-up to 2013’s critically-lauded Shadows long player was captured at New Alliance Audio Productions by Jon Taft (Since The Flood, On The Might Of Princes), mixed by Jon Taft and MORNE, mastered at Audiosiege by Brad Boatright (Mournful Congregation, Abstracter, Integrity, Obituary), and includes the photography and design of Hillarie Jason.

Issues Treble, “The title track of the band’s new album is certainly rooted in hardcore, but a hardcore that’s comfortable with a measured pace, with taking its time, with showcasing a greater degree of texture and patience. Probably most accurately, MORNE could be called a sludge metal band, as the closest connection to the sound they’ve cultivated over the years is that of Neurosis. But ‘To the Night Unknown’ feels uniquely their own, dark, direct, but subversively complex.”
To The Night Unknown will come available on 2xLP, CD, and digital formats. Preorders are available NOW at: https://armageddonlabel.bigcartel.com/.
Forged in 2005, MORNE is a heavy, atmospheric band based in Boston, Massachusetts. Their style blends doom metal and classic British crust but stretches beyond those boundaries, combining a bleak lyrical style with driving riffs. MORNE’s sound would become synonymous with that of early Neurosis while integrating influences from the likes of such bands as Bolt Thrower, Discharge, Swans, and Joy Division. The band has toured the US, Canada, and Europe, and has been part of large festivals such as Roadburn, Hellfest, and Psycho Las Vegas.
