Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Greetings. This is David from A Mournful Path. A Mournful Path was conceived in late July 2016. A Mournful Path is the product of a long standing collaboration between my brother Michael Romeo and I. We have been playing music for a long time. Michael and I control all aspects of production. This entity has finally come to fruition. This entity is evolving each day.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Our sound is a unique coalescence of modern black, atmospheric and death metal. A lot of media have referred to as post modern Black Metal. I am happy with that but really dislike labels. We are influenced solely and what we do and what we create. We enjoy listening to Svartidauði, Horna, Sargeist, 1349, Godflesh, Drudkh, Burzum, Death Fetishist, Behexen, Marduk. I am really enjoying Mizmor and Ulcerate from New Zealand.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
I believe we offer something different. “From the Wreckage of Humiliation” is our first offering. It was the first song that we collaborated together. As I previously stated, our music is evolving each day. The material we are working on is more ferocious.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
The reaction has been great so far. “From the Wreckage of Humiliation” has been received very well. This all relatively new. We have only been together for (9) months. The reaction has been great so far.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
The band is signed to 'Inverse Records.' A Mournful Path will release our debut album (EP) in October / November of this year (2017) exclusively on Inverse. Inverse Records is the perfect choose because it allows to have total creative control. We are very pleased to be part of their roster.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
We will release our debut album (EP) in October / November of this year (2017) exclusively on Inverse Records.
