Portland, Oregon based one-man blackened doom metal act MIZMOR has announced its new album “Prosaic”, slated to be released on July 21st via Profound Lore Records.
With the track “No Place To Arrive”, MIZMOR has unleashed the first single today. The song is released alongside a brand new music video directed by Zev Deans, which you can watch here:
MIZMOR on the new album: “The idea behind ‘Prosaic’ was to make an intentionally less conceptual, more slice-of-life record. I wanted to make an album that was less precious and obsessed-over, more honest and real; less grandiose and more human.“
He continues: “I found it an interesting challenge to find the line between ‘you can do better’ and ‘you’re beating a dead horse.’ I tried to make my process more efficient and even fun at times. I simply wanted to share, but if that meant exacting all-out perfectionism, I wasn’t going to make a record. Right now I’m interested in making less self-indulgent music. The themes are the absurdity/futility/purpose/meaning of work, mindfulness/consciousness/living in the present moment/shedding illusions, depression/acceptance/contentment. This is the first MIZMOR album without any content relating to god/atheism. You also won’t hear any shrieks.“
“Prosaic” track listing:
- Only An Expanse
- No Place To Arrive
- Anything But
Founded in 2012, the content behind MIZMOR is that of the existential – primal and innate musings about cause, purpose, self, and god. It is the search for light and truth, or the fact that there is none. It comes from an embittered, burned, confused, and broken heart. It is the fight for survival when reason and foundation has turned to nothingness. It is the crashing down of towers of falsehood and the freedom that comes through a certain kind of grief. Ultimately, MIZMOR is the manifestation of a long-felt depression whose end is not in sight and with four brand new tracks spanning over 46 minutes, another intimate chapter of MIZMOR is about to be revealed.
“Prosaic” was written, performed, produced, and recorded by A.L.N. at Albilith Studio in 2022. Mix by Sonny DiPerri at Octopus Beak and master by Adam Goncalves at Telegraph Mastering. Stunning artwork by Bryan Proteau.
