about

The followup to Mesmur's crushing eponymous debut, "S" is an apocalyptic funeral doom exploration of the madness of the cosmos. Combining plodding and malicious riffs with icy abyssal atmospheres, "S" creates a disturbing yet often beautiful representation of the chaotic void that is our universe.

Mesmur have managed to hit a proper Doom 'sweet spot' twice in a row, and I'm not a great believer in that sort of thing being pure coincidence. 9/10 -Doom Metal

It has been said that if you look long into the abyss the abyss will look back. ‘S’ is the sound of the abyss looking back. Highly recommended. 9/10 -Metal Wani

MESMUR's new album, "S", serves mesmerizing athmospheric funeral doom metal as cold and frightening as the infinite universe. If a space corpse perceived, it would suffer exactly like this, drifting through utter darkness past hostile planets and dying stars. -Doom Metal Front

Heaviness and satisfaction often find a way to work in perfect harmony especially in doom metal, but Mesmur takes that concept to the vacuum of space and beyond with four tracks that are possibly the epitome of the genre for the entire year. -Headbanger Reviews

Mesmur’s S is hands down one the best funeral doom albums I’ve heard, and by that I don’t mean it’s merely some kind of subgenre revival. S stands on equal footing with the greats of funeral doom, and like any particularly high quality album, it should capture the interest of fans of other metal genres. -Contaminated Tones

It’s a big statement and a major subject matter, and after absorbing these songs, you might shift the way you think of funeral doom and the cosmos. -Meat Mead Metal

What Mesmur has accomplished on this record is, without doubt, something remarkable. -Metal Injection

Track Name: Singularity
Cloud of stellar dust
Burning, expanding
Seeking entropy
Craving singularity

Aeons bound in chains
Of ultraviolet fire
Slave to equilibrium
Progenitor of chaos

Accretion, friction, expulsion, release
Discarding the broken cage of light
Gravitational collapse
Dying to be reborn in a sovereign darkness

Distorting, bending
Inner paths converge
Quantum foam
A temple of anti-matter

A pillar of creation,
Astral evolution
A new existence, a new dimension
Infinite knowledge borne of the void
Cast away the toxic light
Cast away stability
Farewell to a dead sun
Farewell to silent kings

Tidal forces
Rip apart the heavens
A self sustaining vacuum
Flaying time and space

Welcome new life
Event horizon
No light provided
No warmth required
Freedom borne of cold
Singularity
Track Name: Exile
Cutting through the tangled threads of consciousness
Evacuate the earthen womb
Third-dimensional web of pain
Reality a shrinking speck
In endless folds of space

Senses devolve to formless dissonance

Reduced to projections of fear
Perception strangled by claws of dream

A feverish journey
A burden panspermic
The purifying embrace
Of absolute zero

Sullen peace
A graveyard of dead stars
Depleted of thought

Expansive void of
Nebulous rubble
Tabula rasa
Seeds of insanity
Nucleic acid,
A cosmic poison
Propagating life,
Father of infection

Centuries of travel
Enclosed in an instant
A purpose imagined
Disposition quenched
Time and awareness crushed
By the jaws of gravity
Track Name: Distension
Bodies that once moved in harmony
Now wander aimlessly
Led by the vastness of chaos
A cold, somber exodus

The aging giant
Reaches its arms
Into the vacuous infinite

Energy expelled to the void,
Banished to the abyss
A nihilistic will,
Resolved to a perfect state

The illusion of evolution,
The widening gyre
Orbits unravelled,
Perturbation of the spheres
Gradual dismantling
Of the celestial field
The thermal death
Of a once stable core

Expanding system, entropic path
The scattering of matter, accelerated decay
Particles divide, diffusing the elements
Pernicious alchemy, the cosmic deconstruction

The dying giant,
Its distended form
Absorbed by the vacuous infinite
