When The Fear Subsides

by Mourn the Light



“When The Fear Subsides"
The new single from CT's Mourn the Light was recorded and mixed in the summer of 2020 at Studio Wormwood in Mansfield, CT, by Dave Kaminsky (critically acclaimed for his work with Bone Church, Fires in the Distance, and previously with Pinto Graham) and mastered by Ryan Williams (whose notable works include The Black Dahlia Murder, Fires in the Distance, and much more) at Augmented Audio in Los Angeles, CA.
The single will be featured on the band's first full-length album 'Suffer, Then We're Gone', which will offer up 9 songs at a running time of 55 minutes.
The new single features a guest appearance on keys by Alex Newton (Wake of Sirens, Dzo-nga).
Influences range from the epic traditional doom metal of Candlemass to the power metal offerings of Hammerfall; Mourn The Light also channels the spirit of rock/metal predecessors Judas Priest, Uriah Heep, and the kings of melodic traditional metal... Iron Maiden.


We should have seen the signs, it was all so clear, now it's too late
We pay for all the wasted years, all the time we spent drowning in hate
A day will come again when the fear subsides
We'll start a clean slate and look up to clear blue skies

This sickness has made us all insane
Everyone of us engulfed by the flames
Greed has caused us all so much pain
Now sorrow and regret are all that remains

We can't reach a common goal
If we're always at each other's throats
We can't avoid extinction of our dreams
Without a true thirst for peace
We won't ever rise again
If we can't leave the past behind
There has got to be change
How have we been so blind?

We're paying for things we did not do
We're dying and there's nothing we can do
Praying for a chance to breathe again
Yearning for a new beginning, not the end

We can't reach a common goal...

In my dreams we put our differences aside
We come together to make a better life
In these dreams we rejoice
Together we welcome clear blue skies
