Well it seems as if the good people over at Lost Disciple records were feeling a little nostalgic and decided to re-release Dusk's entire album collection onto one tidy release entitled, Mourning…Resurrect. Was this the right move? Hmm… in a time when the utmost technical speed, inspiring timing passages and down right phenomenal productions seem to rule the scene. I'm not quite sure if this particular decision will end up being that beneficial to the first quarter of the fiscal year over at Disciple. Dusk's ever trudging; ever-slowing approach to doom-metal did at one time did find a slight demand, has absolutely no place in the ranks of our superior modern metal. Yes I understand some of the material was initially released back in 94, which in reality wasn't that long ago, but even then I still asked that my metal didn't put me to sleep. Even with a crisp millennium production the songs within Mourning…Resurrect would still deliver the same tiresome feel and uninventive sludge their original form branded. The musicianship of Dusk actually falls way below mediocre. Having their entire collection within one disk actually brought to light how members within basically did not progress as musicians whatsoever their entire 3-album career. If this was an actual conscious effort to make three albums with such similar slow-grinding maximum boredom-intact, it's no wonder why the fell wayside to the doom-metal ditch. I am sure a fan of this lackluster of a band will immediately try to direct me to a possible ambient attempt. To this my only response would have to be quite simply be a yawn. Foking ambiance is that what we're calling this form of dross. On a side note and to Dusk's benefit. It has been awhile since I have heard an excerpt from the Hellraiser movies. It seems not that long ago you couldn't throw an album on without receiving a patented Pinhead quote. Beyond that I found Dusk's Mourning…Resurrect uninspired, sterile and completely and udderly obtuse. Bottom Line: If you like your metal laggard, unoriginal, and completely lacking of any enlivened emotion than Dusk's Mourning… Resurrect is a must have.
