Morbus Chron biography
Based in Stolkholm, Sweden, MORBUS CHRON was founded in 2007 by Robert ANDERSSON (vocals/guitar), Edvin AFTONFALK (guitar) and Stefan JOHANSSON (drums). Influenced by their forefathers in the Swedish death metal scene, the band's early demos and releases captured a raw buzzsaw aggression combined with a tense atmosphere. Stefan left the band after recording an early demo with them and was replaced by Adam LINDMARK on drums, while Dag LANDIN joined on bass. After signing a contract with Pulverised Records due to the positive response of their ''Creepy Creeping Creeps'' EP, in August of 2011 the full length album ''Sleepers in the Rift'' was released. Produced by Nicke ANDERSSON (ex-ENTOMBED), the album was fast, relentless and a noteable homage to early gritty death metal.

The band signed to the higher profile Century Media label and released the EP ''A Saunter through the Shroud'' on July of 2012, showcasing a much more progressive style to their sound, incorperating aspects of progressive metal acts VOIVOD and ATHEIST to their style. February of 2014 saw the release of the full length album, ''Sweven'', which combines the death metal of their earlier fare with an abundance of haunting atmospheric passages and dreamy melodies that combine to form highly unusual but innovative music.

Morbus Chron Tech/Extreme Prog Metal

Review by CassandraLeo

5 stars Morbus Chron's debut, Sleepers in the Rift, was solid but fairly by-the-numbers old school death metal worship (think the likes of Autopsy). For those who enjoy such material, it's certainly a great listen, but it's not the sort of thing that would get a band a listing on Prog Archives.

On the other hand, Sweven, their second album, is a radical left-turn the likes of which few listeners had probably expected of them. While there's still plenty of death metal here, there are significant portions of the record that do not actually qualify as metal at all, and even the segments that do qualify as metal manage to maintain the same otherworldly, dreamy atmosphere as the more subdued bits. Several songs are also instrumental, and even in the vocal songs, the band stretches out instrumentally at length.

The song lengths are also misleading: several pieces segue seamlessly into one another (the first three songs are an excellent example of this). The result is that the album feels more like a single long composition with a few brief gaps than a collection of ten songs.

The songwriting and performances are superb throughout; the lyrics, though mostly indecipherable, are different enough from the standard blood and gore fare of death metal to be worth a read. The production is excellent, with the instrumental clarity high and the instruments being mastered with plenty of room to breathe. A note must also be made about the packaging, which is simply gorgeous, especially on the vinyl edition, which comes with a gorgeous twelve-page, 12"x12" booklet that contains several beautiful full-size paintings. In an era in which record packaging is dying as an art form, it's nice to see a band keeping it going. There really isn't a weak point on this album for progressive death metal fans, and it stands as one of the best releases of the genre in 2014. Strongly recommended.

Review by LearsFool
Collaborator Post/Math Rock Team

5 stars Slowly, quietly, but surely a guitar plays, over time rising in volume. Other instruments soon join, and when the drums join you know you're soon in for the crunch of metal. But for now they play as before. It takes awhile, but eventually this intro breaks into the expected progressive death metal, and demonic voices rise from the depths to welcome you. Things eventually calm back down, and then return to fury. This continues on to the fifteen minute mark. That would be an apt description of the first three, united tracks of Morbus Chron's second outing, "Berceuse", "Chains", and "Towards a Dark Sky", and also sums up the style of the rest of the record. To my ears this is strictly an improvement over the already excellent style of Edge of Sanity on their seminal "Crimson", likely part of the inspiration for these newly minted Swedes. A top album of 2014 for me, I recommend fans of prog death, especially those who find quiet interludes pleasing, check this wonderful record out.
Thanks to aapatsos for the artist addition.
