Morne Sign With Metal Blade Records, Debut “Wretched Empire” Video


Boston post-metal band Morne have signed with Metal Blade Records are and set to release their new album, “Engraved With Pain“, through the label on November 03rd. Sessions for that outing took place under Converge‘s Kurt Ballou at his GodCity Studio in Salem, MA. Pre-orders for that four song opus are available now via

The song “Wretched Empire” serves as the first single from the release, with guitarist/vocalist Milosz Gassan offering:

“‘Wretched Empire‘ is the first song off of our new album to be published bringing the wait to its end. Barebone, stripped down riffs and a cold look at today’s reality, lyrically it’s my take on the current situation in the world: How divided everything is and how people are prone to being misled.

How we forget our history; history that happened not that long ago. I never comment on my lyrics but maybe in this case it’s needed. I call humanity a ‘wretched empire.’ It’s not an optimistic song. I hope people will enjoy it and find something for themselves in this single and the whole album as well.”
