‘A Reminder Of The Wound Unhealed’ LP out 10/13 on DAZE.

Canadian metalcore band A Mourning Star have shared their new single ‘Would It Be Easier If My Flesh Tangled Through This Blade’. The track stems from their debut album, ‘A Reminder Of The Wound Unhealed’, out on October 13th on DAZE. Drawing influence from acts like Poison The Well and 7 Angels 7 Plagues, the band is paying ode to old-school metalcore while bringing a new complexity to the sound. ‘Would It Be Easier If My Flesh Tangled Through This Blade’ gleams with a mix of scream-sung vocals and melody driven guitars. A false ending leads into a crushing breakdown that is begging to be spinkicked to. Vocalist Elijah Robinson dives into the rattling event that influenced the lyrics:

“I was inspired to write the lyrics to the single last year when I chopped off the tip of my finger making dinner. I went to the hospital and there wasn’t really shit they could do for me because I chopped the tip clean off, I couldn’t get stitches or anything. When I got back to my house the bloody scene was still on the counter and my fingertip was sitting there. The imagery was jarring and I just started writing shit down, but the song is basically a metaphor to me about the long process of personal healing and the frustrations that come with it.”

‘When A Mourning Star’ dropped their first proper release, ‘To See Your Beauty Fade’, in March 2022 (The Coming Strife), the band knew they created something they were proud of but did not dream of the strong response the four songs would receive. From there they hit the road with fellow Canadian metalcore band and now labelmates Serration, as well as opening for acts like Knocked Loose, Chamber, Mindforce. Releasing three more songs in 2022, six of those tracks have been remastered for the release of ‘A Reminder Of The Wound’ Unhealed, encompassing the second half of the record. Creating a polished franticity, the band recorded with Andre Urquidi over two sessions in Vancouver before sending it off to Chris Dimas for mixing and Adam Cichocki for mastering.

A Mourning Star is Elijah Robinson – Vocals, Christian Frizzelle – Lead Guitar, Tyler Peason – Bass, Byron Mayer – Drums and Ravi Bhatti – Rhythm Guitar.
