Islamic countries are known to have been quite strict in terms of cultural liberty or death threats towards artists have always just sananhelinää. Iranian Nu same alias Count De Efrit has been working on this debut album, despite a one-man black metal project they are involved Silent Pathille. The band is not the lord of the first, nor the nationality of not even in this case, the music of no importance, as the Mourner Portraits in itself is quite a good release.

Depressive, melodic and ethereal music dragging out like a cold mist on long-forgotten cemetery. Songs pins and barren soundscapes will counterbalance the background echo the ambience, which take over the whole range of the scene, carrying the thoughts far away from this place and time. Suitable for dull and distant sound world supports the mood created by the disc, which moves up between funeral doom decision such as the slow vaikerruksellaan.

Basically, this is a disc which has been recommended to listen alone and in the dark. Mourner Portraits is a bleak, depressing and distressing, but aesthetically beautiful. Depressive Black Metal otherwise fairly repetitive world of Silent Path is different in a good way and pass the root of lead heavy music perfectly the essence of the consciousness of the listener.
