You remember that album cover, don’t you? Sure you do. How could you forget it? It’s the Necrolord cover for The Weight of Oceans, the third album by Sweden’s In Mourning, which will be released by Spinefarm Records on April 18. It’s what we call a “highly anticipated” release here at NCS.

And beginning today, everyone can hear the entire album. It will be streaming between now and that April 18 release date at the Kaaoszine web site, which you can reach via this link.

I’ve only had time to listen to the first three tracks, but they justify our eagerness for the album. The lengthy album opener, in particular, warrants the over-used term “epic”. It’s called “Colossus”, and if you don’t have time for anything else, check that one out — it took me back to memories of Opeth’s Blackwater Park.

Of course, please come back here and let us know what you think.


  1. Holy shit this rules! For sure picking this up next week.

  2. Never checked out any prior material. Surprised to see they started out as goth metal and turned to prog death.

  3. I just did a whole run of In Mourning’s discog from Shade to this one, and the fact that I didn’t skip a single song or glance at my computer once is a testament. These guys are great. The new disc is fantastic.

  4. damn!!!!!!!!!!! Im getting this record!!!!! fuck did I like this!!!!!!!!!!!
