Morrow – Covenant of Teeth

a0164054016_10
This album got me thinking about stuff. How do we treat other people or even ourselves? How much do we honestly try to improve ourselves? And what about the planet, our home? Why have we been so self destructive? Is it too late to reverse this world’s demise? I’m afraid i don’t have the answers. But i’ll tell you what: today we have some exquisite music for you.

Morrow is a neocrust band from the U.K. ”Covenant of Teeth, which was released on the 8th of April, is their debut album. Here, once again we find Alex CF (Anopheli, Archivist, Carnist). He is of course responsible for the vocals and the art. I don’t think there’s any doubt about his skills. He is a great illustrator. If you’ ve got the record just take a look at his drawings.

”Covenant of Teeth” is a concept album. We find ourselves in a post apocalyptic world where all the damage that we humans have done to this world is a distant memory. This album is about language and the sharing of ideas, culture and beliefs. As a multilingual person i’ve always believed that the more languages you learn the richer you become. But let’s get into character. Four songs are included in this album. It starts with ”Fathom” and all i can say is i’m starting to feel the magic. A new, distant world stands in front of me. Awesome melodies come out of my soundsystem. ”The Norr” is one of the tribes that dwell in this world. Check out this song and listen to their story. ”Forgiving Grin” is another great song. Melodic yet immensely heavy. Fall of Efrafa fans are surely going to like this one. The album’s last song is called ”Cleaved Fang”. And may i just say what a great song this is! Personally i loved it. I think this is my favorite track from this album. I mean it’s such an epic track.

”Covenat of Teeth” is an excellent album. I’ ve tried really hard to find a weak moment but that was impossible. This is by all means one of the best albums i’ve listened to in months. Don’t try to classify it, just enjoy the music. Check out these links:
