01. The Mournful Lamentation
02. The Painful Utterance
Varanak mastermind Rz about the new release: “I wrote the music and lyrics for this release back in 2016 and did the initial recordings in 2017. By the time I had finished, I was already working on tracks that would appear on »Demo MMXX« and »Relics Immemorial«, so these songs no longer fit into what I was writing. Around October of 2021, I went back and revisited these tracks and they resonated with me. I rerecorded the guitars, vocals, and bass and worked out a kinks in the tracks.
Originally titled »Mourn«, »The Mournful Utterance« can be seen as a relic of a different time of Varanak’s musical evolution. Instead of monolith black metal, »The Mournful Utterance« explores the slower more somber aspects of Varanak, think Warning or My Dying Bride but tuned much lower.”
