Morgon - Evoking Eternity

Evoking Eternity
by Marcos "Big Daddy" Garcia at 30 September 2017, 2:38 PM

When a band comes from Germany, we have great expectations for it, because the country is one of the main pillars for modern Metal scene due names as ACCEPT, SODOM, HELLOWEEN, KREATOR, DESTRUCTION and many others. But we must face reality: since the extreme Metal genres came to a more prominent position in the underground scene, Germany bands didn’t come to be as well-known as those from Sweden, Norway and Greece. Even having a good work, MORGON really has a way to go, because “Evoking Eternity”, their second album, is just a good album, nothing more.

Their main efforts are on created a mix between Melodic Death Metal and Black Metal. But it lacks a better approach. I’m not saying that their musical work is bad, no, but we all heard many bands alike them time and time again. Once more: it’s not bad, but it’s not something special, something that we hear and it will hold our attention. The sound quality of “Evoing Eternity” is really very good. Andreas Weimer on the recording and Thomas Karlstedt on the mixing and mastering did a fine work, because the sound is clean and understandable, but keeping a great amount of weight and that essential rawness that bands that follows their way must have.

MORGON’s musical work main problem is simple: even having talent (we can hear it clearly), they seem to be chained to what was already done, so their talent to build something good stays in a low level.   The album has some good moments, as we can hear on the aggressive insight of “Sulphur”, the slow and bitter parts of “The Bleeding Wounds of the Demiurge”, the guitars spewing aggressive riffs on the slow paced “Glorification of the Black Flame”, the bitter weight shown on “Monuments of Transcendental Power”, and the sinister atmosphere of “Evoking Eternity”. But the feeling that we heard it before in previous albums is annoying.

They can do better than that, then let’s hope that MORGON will show something that will honor their talent next time.
