Stepping onto the stage from the shadowy realms of Vancouver, Tribunal is poised to captivate the wider world with their spellbinding debut album, ‘The Weight Of Remembrance.’ Veiled in the dark elegance of Gothic Doom Metal, the duo weave melancholic narratives of perpetual judgement, ceaseless rain, and relentless despair.
Tribunal, composed of classically trained cellist/bassist/vocalist Soren Mourne and guitarist/vocalist Etienne Flinn, delivers classic Doom riffage with an intensity verging on Death Metal, akin to My Dying Bride viewed through a vast stained-glass expanse. Their sound, while echoing the classic eras of the 80s and 90s, refrains from being merely retro or tributary. Instead, ‘The Weight of Remembrance’ conveys the majesty of a meticulously composed orchestral piece, fitting for a decayed cathedral cloaked in time-worn moss. Haunting clean vocals, chilling black-metal shrieks, and ominous death calls are masterfully interwoven, highlighting the duo’s dynamic range.
An essential addition to the modern Doom lexicon, Tribunal’s debut presents the potential for boundless musical exploration from a foundation of crushing melancholy and desolate purpose. In this regard, ‘The Weight Of Remembrance’ exudes the atmosphere of a band advanced beyond their years, showcasing remarkable breadth and execution in its vision.
