Father Murphy this time team up with producer Fabrizio Modonese Palumbo (Larsen) for a 10” EP aptly titled “Lamentations”.
“Lamentations” completes Father Murphy's 2015 Trilogy of The Cross, started with Calvary and followed by Croce.
Recorded in Turin with the help of sound engineer Paul Beauchamp, “Lamentations” finds Father Murphy at a crossroad of sort: instigated by Modonese Palumbo, Chiara and the Reverend went for a slight alteration of their signature sound, while merrily focusing on their obsessive topics.
Inspired by a not exactly orthodox reading of the Book of Jeremiah and by the tradition of the Holy Week Lamentations, the band went this time for two long compositions that at the same feel like classic Father Murphy and a substantial enrichment of their usually spare sonic palette.
The death-tone of the Reverend’s guitar here replaced by a trumpet with the same death-tone, Chiara Lee’s half-childish half-demonic vocals, the buzzing drones that wrap the duo’s sound in an uncomfortable, suffocating aura are all still there but this time there is also something different.
There is in fact a new, almost “hidden reverse Britain” vibe and also an aftertaste of that kind of weird, twisted, turned inside-out/upside-down psychedelic black metal played by groups like Urfaust and Striborg.
All in all, the final result is another distinct Father Murphy release, another brick in the enigmatic wall of sound they are building year after year.
