Mors Principium Est – Embers Of A Dying World


Where Mors Principium Est‘s fourth and fifth albums sounded more like Part 1 and Part 2 of one another, Embers of a Dying World does a damn good job of simply allowing itself to be its own album. First and foremost: by amping up the orchestral elements…so much so, that Andy Gillion himself jokingly refers to a portion of Reclaim The Sun‘s bridge as “the Mortal Kombat riff.” Not only are you getting film score-quality string and horn sections (just listen to Genesis, it’s seriously the most beautiful intro track I’ve heard on a metal album), you’re also looking at pianos, choruses, and…oh yeah, synthesizers, because Mors Principium Est has always had that. Doing all of this allows each song not only to breathe and open up as they will, but also makes each song sound different and matchless from one another; this was something even Liberation = Termination failed to do in a few areas.
