Review by Any Colour You Like
4 stars I awaited the release of this album with great nervousness after the impact that The Morningside's debut album had upon me, and my listening habits. The Moving Crosscurrent of Time is the second full length album from Russian death/doom band The Morningside.

The album on the whole feels more succinct and compact than the first album. As such, it feels less sprawling and more focused, which is nice. The signature post-metallish doom riffs and thumping bass are as prominent here as before, but there is also an increased focus on lead guitar work and better polished vocals all round. The tracks that really captured my attention were 'Autumn People' and the brilliant 'Moving Crosscurrent of Time. The latter features some amazing guitar work, brutally pleasant growled vocals and a sombre atmosphere. Whereas the first album felt more a kin to nature inspired doom, Moving Crosscurrent of Time delves deeper into introspective thought. The result is a more contemplative album, a snappier, shorter format and greater emphasis on compositional technicality, as opposed to sheer power and atmosphere. The vocals have improved too, now more polished and accessible, they still maintain a distinct shriek, but now may be more palatable to casual fans.

This is not to say that the album lacks power, but the towering post metal riffs that made the debut so epic have been replaced with punchier and more detailed riffing. Having said this, several tracks feel a bit derivative. This is a minor gripe and does not dent the power of the album. The semi-acoustic touches are nice and very Agallochian, while the drumming remains crisp and unobtrusive. In short, The Morningside have produced another wonderful album here, full of doom, atmosphere and power. The progressive elements that made them so interesting on the first album are still there, but they have morphed into a slightly more succinct style.

A good addition to any Prog Metal collection, especially recommended to fans of Agalloch, Katatonia and other progressive doom/death bands.
