Record Review: Lorna Shore ‘Flesh Coffin’

What’s Lorna Shore? Black metal not from Norway you say? Technical black metal deathcore? From New Jersey? And it’s actually good?

The answer to all of those questions is simply “yes.” Lorna Shore have been around for a few years. Building on the strength of their first album, Psalms, they have crafted a fast-paced, brutal and philosophical full-length that should surely propel them to the forefront of the genres they dabble in. Flesh Coffin, which arrives officially on February 17th, 2017, is a foray into the mysteries of death and life and what they mean. “Denounce The Light” forces you to wonder how far you would go to keep living once your time has passed. “the//watcher” suggests your life is not your own. Throughout the album, the bass drums and relentless shrieking often drown out the inquisitive lyrics and render them nearly unintelligible, but that is par for the course with heavier music.

You can feel the heat from the burning churches when Flesh Coffin comes on. Lorna Shore’s black metal side is on display in this release. The technical, progressive and deathcore elements show through as well, making the album fun, brutal and potentially overwhelming. It is an album to look forward to and listen to repeatedly as every playthrough will offer you a new perspective.

LIVE SHOTS: CHELSEA GRIN, OCEANS ATE ALASKA, LORNA SHORE

Nothing gets a crowd going more than a band playing one of their own classics. You know, the songs we’ve all had time to memorize every word, riff and beat too. Playing their first full-length record, Desolation of Eden, in it’s entirety was not only a gift to Chelsea Grin fans, but a hell of an experience which had some killer openers including Wage War, Lorna Shore and Oceans Ate Alaska.
