Mournful Congregation - The Unspoken Hymns

Mournful Congregation's The Unspoken Hymns is a collection of all of the bands four splits over their 15+ year career, plus a cover of Thergothon's "Elemental". It was released on the 20 Buck Spin Bandcamp as a prequel of sorts to their next full-length The Book of Kings.

This is emotional funeral doom characterized by droning guitar passages and simple, but incredibly heavy drumming. Mournful Congregration's take on the genre is dynamic, but off course still incredible slow moving. Here's a review from Doommantia.
