Band/artist - Morgion
Genre(s) - Doom metal
Origin - United States of America
Album - Cloaken by Ages, Crowned in Earth
Year of release - 2004

Usually the term "epic doom" refers solely to eighties and eighties-inspired traditional doom metal but I don't see exactly why. Death-doom can be at least as epic in sound, and this is one of these cases. In general sound Morgion could best be likened to the first two albums of Mourning Beloveth: monolithic tracks in the old MDB-style with plenty of emotional intensity. For instance, A Slow Succumbing sounds like exactly that, and the whole album is full of impressive and atmospheric moments. Doom as doom should be. Sorry for the bitrate, low even by my standards.
