Hard to believe this is such a young act. Duskmourn are from the wilds of Pennsylvania, and this is their second album of epic metal after being around for just 5 years. The sound here is impressively composed and recorded, taking strands of epic Death and Black Metal reminiscent of bands like Skyforger or Moonsorrow, along with influences from more atmospheric sources like Summoning and Falkenbach. This is a big, powerful album with sweeping riffs, tasteful use of keys, and folk-inflected flourishes to round it out. Some of the songs do drag on a bit long, and the speedier "Crowned in Flame" does a lot to perk up the second half of the album, but overall Of Shadow and Flame manages to create an encompassing and satisfying experience.
