Sarcasm has had a storied career. Originally formed in Sweden in 1987, Sarcasm would release blistering Death Metal throughout the early and mid 90’s. After a shortlived reunion in 1997, they would come back into the fold in 2015 with a new re-designed version of their lineup. Now they return with their new full-length album “Mourninghoul”.

“Mourninghoul” is Sarcasm’s fifth album, it was recorded during six months of the last year. Mixed and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory at Rorysound. With the new drummer Jesper Ojala the band has recorded their most dynamic and innovative album to date, while the band keeps evolving and raises the bar a notch on each album, the old catchiness and atmosphere is still recognizable. The essence of the band is Death Metal but listening to the album closely and open-mindedly, many dimensions unfold, and indeed the album feels like a journey and explores many elements and emotions of extreme metal. And that was the intention because like the last album, “Mourninghoul” is also concept-based. It’s about a two-minded ghoul and it’s journey through its miserable existence on Earth and the deepest abyss, the lyrical structure is like a conversation the ghoul is having with its higher inner being with answers coming through on its journey as its universe expands, with lots of symbolism and metaphors thrown in till its final realization. Sarcasm does not write lyrics like others, while the musical side of the band is very strong, their unique lyrical style alone makes the band stand out from the rest. There is a deep meaning to their concepts that truly resonates.

Take Black Metal, melodies, and Death Metal and blend it all up then you’ll have “Mourninghoul”. The music remains beautiful, vile, and brutal all in the same. “Mourninghoul” is a triumphantly diverse Death Metal album that brings a complete and competent sound.
