LORNA SHORE Immortal

Lorna Shore’s music has gradually evolved into a more blackened direction, but without sacrificing their obvious deathcore roots. Not necessarily what I was hoping for since I’m not a huge fan of high pitch screaming vocals, and I much prefer the parts where a deeper growling style of vocals dominates. However, quality can’t be denied and I’m sure ‘Immortal’ will be a huge leap forward for their career. I love the huge symphonic arrangements that makes this album sound really bombastic and atmospheric being a beautiful contrast to the brutal and technical foundation with breakdowns, chugging riffs and subdrops. At times the symphonic elements brings a certain Dimmu Borgir feel to the music, which of course is not a bad compliment. Personally I find the first half of the album slightly better than the last with the title track standing out as its magnum opus. The second half of the album is by no means poor, just a tiny step down in the quality of the songs but don’t let that scare you from checking it out. As always when it comes to this genre the production is crystal clear, extremely powerful with lots of low end definition and quite heavily compressed. Unfortunately the release of this album has been overshadowed by the violence/abuse accusations against vocalist CJ McCreery resulting in him being fired from the band last December. For a while it was discussed to re-record the vocals with another singer but eventually Century Media and the band decided to release it as is. Hopefully Lorna Shore fans will still show their appreciation for the excellent music presented on ‘Immortal’ leaving the legal scandal to the judiciary cause ‘Immortal’ is really pushing the boundaries of the genre to the next level.
