In 2018, Mournful Congregation dropped their first album in more than six years, The Incubus Of Karma. The widely acclaimed album was heralded as yet another landmark for the extreme / funeral doom genre, adding perhaps the brightest jewel to the band’s crown. Back in 2011 the band released another monument to melancholy, the stunningly grandiose The Book Of Kings. Landing in Decibel’s Top 40 albums that year, the album was the pinnacle of their progressively-minded dirge to that point and includes what may be the most epic track in a catalog that defines the word, the thirty-plus minute title track that weaves a tale of regality through the life, death, crowning and dethronement of nameless kings. Having begun the year with Mournful Congregation, 20 Buck Spin now sees fit to bookend the 2018 campaign with this gorgeous vinyl edition of The Book Of Kings—a gatefold 2xLP featuring the original artwork and accented with metallic bronze print and a beautiful full-sized 12 page booklet.
