apostolisza8 My personal no.1 record of 2019 and one of the best of the previous decade. An immense, adventurous and cathartic emotional experience that is evoked via crushing black/doom soundscapes.

c_c_chaos This album keeps the listener on the brink of drowning in a sea of distortion and harsh vocals, enticing her with just enough glimpses of melody and meditative rhythms to stay committed. Leaving the lures of faith and suicide behind, the concept culminates in a life-affirming, existentialist morale. Defying genre-boundaries, one-person metal project Mizmor have succeeded in making the album I've always wished Neurosis would live up to. Favorite track: The Narrowing Way.

Raymond Altman 1970 MIZMOR Completely Owns it right here! This has everything one needs to transcend from one moment to the next. This is like listening to the band OAK from Baltimore at times, then transcends into an existence that brings one home, say like listening to old school Burning Witch from Washington State way back when! Then has the complete rule of new time changes throughout the duration of events & never disappoints with letting the songs groove! Long Story Short, this is a Good Buzz!!!! Favorite track: Desert of Absurdity.

--------------------------

"Cairn" is an emotional exploration of the absurdity of life - man's constant search for meaning in a chaotic universe devoid of an ultimate purpose. This absurd premise prompts the individual to choose between a leap of faith into an ultimate purpose, suicide, or acceptance of reality. "Cairn" asserts that there is but one viable option, acceptance, and that one must build monuments to the other two as guide posts forbidding return. It declares that one must revolt and live in the present face of this absurdity and create in enjoyment the meaning necessary for life.

From A.L.N.:
""Cairn" clocks in at just under one hour of new original music. I recorded the album over the course of three months in my home studio. I took the long way, sparing no expense or detail in my recording. I sought to take the project to a new territory tonally, starting with my education. I won't get into too much detail lest I bore the majority of you, so I will leave it simple: this is the highest resolution recording of the most thoroughly written and rehearsed Mizmor material there's ever been. I was purposefully the pickiest I've ever been with myself at all stages of this album's production and coming through the other side, I'm extremely happy with the result. I'm incredibly honored and thrilled to again have worked with Sonny DiPerri and Adam Gonsalves). Together, the three of us crafted the sound of "Yodh" and have now taken "Cairn" well beyond the prior's sonic limits. I am also floored by the final product of the extremely personal commissioned painting by Mariusz Lewandowski. Continuing in the vein of the polish surrealist master, Beksinski, Lewandowski has beautifully interpreted the theme's of "Cairn" into his painting "Time Immemorial," which sprawls to grace both covers of the album."
