Four years after their unholy debut “Nocta“, LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR released the gloomy and darkishly beautiful second album via Debemur Morti Productions yesterday. Coherently evolving their style and musical fundament, “Charnel Noir” has become a rough black diamond, incorporating the melodic finesse of Gothic Rock, the heaviness of Doom, and the malicious vibe of Black Metal.
Underground and mainstream press have fallen prey to the dark charm of “Charnel Noir“:
“The songs are beautifully organic, yet retain their rough edges, the guitars also dare to buzz dissonantly, and the sudden openings to epic melodies feel as if one is about to enter an unending and dark abyss.” (Metal Hammer Germany)
“Currently, there is nothing on the horizon which could compete with the blood filled grail of LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR’s album. A scaringly perfect album!” (Legacy Mag)
„These 40 minutes are nothing for the weak at heart, but for sinister souls who love to drown themselves in these compositions.” (Amboss Mag)
LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR is an unending prayer to the darkness of the world. It is the glow of graves at midnight. It is the voidshadows that shiver and move between crumbling tombs. It is the fangs in the tree of life.
LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR is a ritualistic summoning of gloom, unholy radiance, and the ghosts of darker times.
LIGHT OF THE MORNING STAR is vampirism, necromancy, and Devil worship.
