Given the intensity of the summer weather here at the Sleeping Village as of late--tornados, blistering heat, and monsoon-like thunderstorms--a little reminder of winter's chill feels pretty refreshing. Enter, then, the appropriately entitled "January Moon," the forthcoming standalone single from Chicago's own alt-gothic Mordian.
This track--and the Mordian catalog as a whole, which includes 2019's Romance In Disguise EP--is a little gothic, a little alternative, and a whole lot ethereal. Balancing seemingly disparate elements with grace and precision, Mordian allows quieter moments ample room the breathe, while still delivering the oomph we metalheads crave.
Without further ado: give "January Moon," a listen below! As always, we'll meet ye on the other side.
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
What are ye
