THE PATIENT – ‘The Mourning Choir’ Review

THE PATIENT – The Mourning Choir

The PatientAustralian post-hardcore band, The Patient are back with a storming seven-song release, The Mourning Choir.

The opening song is the title track and it is a surprisingly mellow short piano riff that is juxtaposed with the massive riffs and power of next track, Disease. The Patient, feature screamed vocals, pounding drum beats and massive guitars to craft an enormous wall of sound that had the entire office head-banging along.

My Demons And Their Gods begins with some ominous sounding guitars and builds to agonized vocals, powerful beats and chanted choruses that simply rock the roof off the rafters!!! The piano returns for twenty-four seconds of Interlude before the surprisingly melodious vocals on Premortal Existance join some churning Black Sabbath-esque riffs. The track contains a variety of approaches with segments driven by soaring guitar licks and others more mid-paced and riff infused.

The sixth and penultimate track is Forever 17 with signature screamed vocals over some super guitars and tight as all hell rhythm section. It’s a monster effort full of power and leads to the closer, Eulogy where the piano returns for a beautiful and plaintive ending.
