Lorna Shore’s Pain Remains will be legendary, even in Hell

Quickly dominating the extreme metal conversation and establishing themselves as an unstoppable juggernaut of extreme metal, Lorna Shore show no signs of slowing down with their latest release; Pain Remains

Pain Remains has been making the rounds on social media due to its impressive high-concept music videos for its lead singles, all of which sound even better in the context of the album. 

Each track has this dark, oppressive and overwhelming atmosphere that is so dense and filled with virtuosic intensity, most notably from longtime guitarist, Adam Di Micco, who balances intense riffing with incredibly melodic and technical guitar solos. 

One of the biggest strengths of the album is vocalist, Will Ramos, who is quickly becoming the favourite vocalist of so many younger deathcore fans. His ability to create borderline inhuman sounds while still being articulate and delivering some fairly well-crafted and verbose lyrics is second to none.

The highlights of the album are in the absolutely massive symphonic elements which really help Lorna Shore stand out from their contemporaries. 

Tracks like ‘Soulless Existence’ call back to Christopher Young’s Hellraiser score in how it creates an oppressively dark and aggressive atmosphere that would be absolutely perfect accompanying the Cenobites in Hell. 

The album ends with a sprawling epic that rivals ‘The Autotheist Movement’ by The Faceless in terms of grandeur and unlike that album, Lorna Shore opts to build up to this colossal finale and it’s all the more satisfying hearing this glorious cacophony of huge symphonic elements and returning melodies and themes. 

To those unimpressed by the Deathcore scene and those attempting to get into extreme metal in general, Lorna Shore is a phenomenal starting point. 

Blending the best parts of black metal, tech death and deathcore, Pain Remains has the potential to be remembered as a landmark of the genre. 

For fans of Fleshgod Apocalypse, The Faceless, Dimmu Borgir and Cradle of Filth. 

Pain Remains is available on October 14th via Century Media.
