After illness over the festive period & a few false starts I’ve finally managed to get my first post of the year done & to be honest I can’t think of a better one to mark the start of the year as since I’ve had this in my possession I have been absolutely desperate to review it, anybody who has been on any of my social media since the last month of 2018 would’ve seen multiple posts about this particular release and if I could’ve included in my top picks of 2018 I would’ve done but even at the time of writing this it’s still not out release even though a magazine I subscribe to even has one of the tracks on their CD this month. What’s more I am wearing said bands t-shirt whilst I’m typing this which is something I don’t normally do but it was one of my favourite purchases of last year & I’ve got another one on the way as well as physical copy of the EP
So who is this band?
Before I go into the music I want to discuss the artwork:
The artwork was created by the band’s own Guitarist John & Bassist Adam.
John: “Three figures deformed by the surrounding madness and corruption of the spirit, faith and the flesh represent the three songs of the EP”
As mentioned the mentioned the EP has three tracks Lyrics &
Recorded and Mixed by Neil Haynes @ The Parlour Studios, UK
Mastered by Peter In De Betou @ Tailor Maid Productions, SWE
1st “From Once Beneath the Cursed” is a perfectly balanced but brutal introduction to the band and the accompanying
“The Spire Cranes” starts off slower & darker than the first track but then unleashes an absolutely thunderous riff & before you
Lastly, “My Eyes Are The Night” the longest track on the EP. Once again another absolute great track in it’s own right and a great ending to the EP as it demands the listener to want more from Master’s Call
At this point, it’s fair to say I’ve probably listened to Morbid Black
Easily 5 out 5 skulls, with some fire & a baphomet thrown in for good measure.
Morbid Black Trinity is released on the 25th January and can be ordered via the Master’s Call Bandcamp page
