Biography

(1992 – present)

Mourning Beloveth is an Irish death/doom metal band that began in the winter of 1992, though it wasn’t until 1996 that they recorded their first, untitled, demo with Darren (vocals), Frank (guitar), Brian (bass), Tim (drums). Recorded in eight hours with Adrian Butler at the desk this demo contains two songs and is a raw indication of where Mourning Beloveth stands in the death/doom scene today. Adrian joined on bass soon after and Brian switched to guitar. This was the line-up that recorded the highly acclaimed Autumnal Fires demo in 1998 (receiving “Demo of the issue” in Moondance magazine).

Autumnal Fires is a 40-minute piece of music as the songs were intertwined with classical piano and it showed a huge progression in the writing and recording stakes. Mainly classed as death/doom this was the first step into achieving a sound of our own and it saw the integration of clean vocals. An extensive tour of Ireland followed culminating in a support slot to none other than Cathedral in May 1999. Over 1200 copies of Autumnal Fires ware sold throughout the underground and the MB name spread.

We decided to take a bold step, like so many of their contemporaries, and record in the famous Academy studios with Magz at the helm. What was produced after seven intense days of recording was “Dust”, a sixty-six minute Doom masterpiece harking back to the days of the early Doom/Death scene. Dust is a mixture of old and new songs and this creates some of the heaviest and most melancholic music ever.
