Imagine you're a crewperson on a rickety boat somewhere near Iceland trying to escape the aftermath of nuclear winter: the constant swells and storms of the ocean, the gray sky, the certainty of a bleak future, the chaos. Morne will be your soundtrack. At times Morne is slow, yet powerful; fast, but not too eager. Their influences and provenance end up creating a unique, atmospheric sound that offers no promises and no comfort. While a lot of people instantly point to Axegrinder as inspiration, according to frontman Milosz Gassan, no one in the band listens to Axegrinder. There are obvious hints of Misery, crust-metal pioneers Sacrilege, and little bits of Neurosis. With members coming from Grief, Filth of Mankind, and Disrupt, it is fitting that the end result is a gloomy mix of droning metal with crust-punk precepts.
