Shores of Mourning is Isenordal’s first full-length album, and the follow-up to the band’s 2014 demo recording, Imbolc MMXIV. Conjured from both old and new compositions, the album was produced in 2016 as a testament to grief and an exploration of purgatory, in a time where the group itself was going through arduous lineup changes. It is a monument to our camaraderie with members past and present, and an exploration of the changing of the tides towards and away from those we hold dear. It is a study in loss, and a cry for a long-absent sunrise over a sorrowful and chaotic plane. Mixing Cascadian black metal influences with funeral doom, Viking metal, and neofolk, Shores of Mourning should appeal to fans of WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, SUBROSA, and Blood Fire Death-era BATHORY.
