Mourning Beloveth - _Dust_
(Sentinel, 2002)
by: Pedro Azevedo (8 out of 10)
This is the same album I reviewed as an independent release back in CoC #53 (Bron was just a private label created for the sole purpose of releasing the record with some label name on it). It has now been re-released on a label, in greater quantity, and with three extra tracks that raise the album's total length to just under 75 minutes. These consist of "It Almost Looked Human", which is a damn good addition to the album, the brief instrumental "Sinistra" and the lengthy but not especially remarkable "Forever Lost Emeralds". Assuming the price doesn't change, this obviously means some extra value for your money. The album didn't originally seem excessively brief or incomplete without these three tracks, but they generally have enough quality to deserve their place. However, after the instrumental track "Sinistra", which could have provided a nice ending to the album, "Forever Lost Emeralds" seems somewhat unnecessary. Please consult CoC #53 for further details on the rest of _Dust_, which still comes strongly recommended for fans of British doom metal.
