Let me just start this off by saying, this is the first time I have been so floored by an album that I absolutely had to share my experience by reviewing it. The moment I received my package from amazon, I took out this cd, turned out the lights and shut the blinds, put it in the dvd player (can't go wrong with home theatre sound), lied down, hit play, and shut my eyes. I was expecting something powerful, something beautiful and moving in a dark, deep way, and that's exactly what I got.
The songs flow together, in fact, I didn't realize the first track was over until I looked up and saw I was halfway through the third song. Not to say that it's too repetitive, or that all the songs sound the same, because it's not and they don't. It's just one of those cds that's infinately better when absorbed as a whole. Excellent production, the various elements are blended perfectly. The addition of clean vocals has been done very well, also.
By the end of my listening session, I regretted having to return to reality. This music transported me, it lifted me and tore me down, it flew me through dark forests and giant chasms, flowing water and pounding beasts. Very rarely do I get such a first impression and I highly, highly recommend this to anyone that can appreciate the beauty of darkness. This is not background music, this is not music that you play while distracted by other things... this is real, origional, and powerful.

Very dark, very moody, very long. 8 tracks that clock in over an hour. My Dying Bride type misery. The listener is hung upon passages that sway in a hypnotic lull, or crawl along with a sludgy slow metallic crunch. Vocals toggle between a deep smooth vampire-like caress and a demonic belch of torn vocal chords. The band first made their mark with a few releases on Relapse, but some member changes and a hiatus to restructure has found this release on Dark Symphonies. The ebb and flow of this darkened yet melodic creation is quite emotional in structure and delivery. Indulge only if you have the stamina to wade through a couple of 9+ minute tracks. Since it gets lost in itself often, the listener's attention can wander. This makes good, sullen background music to set a dim mood.

Morgion continues to make brilliant music, and this is a worthy follow up to the godlike Solinari.

2004's Cloaked by Ages, Crowned in Earth is the third (and to date, final) full-length album from California-based doom/death metal Morgion, one of the more unfairly overlooked bands in the genre. This album finds the band moving from the Relapse label to the smaller Dark Symphonies, but the core Morgion sound is still very much in place.

Cloaked by Ages, Crowned in Earth pretty much picks up where Solinari left off, and it showcases a band that's never been content to work within the confines of any genre. It has the mournful tones and crushing heaviness of My Dying Bride as well as an atmospheric Katatonia/Anathema vibe, and some of the song structures are almost progressive in nature. They slow things down a lot for this album, so while there is a great sense of heaviness and some memorable doomy riffs, it's the moody, atmospheric side that really comes through. Haunting is probably the best word to describe the album. The only downside is that the production/mastering isn't as good as it should be, which is no doubt a result of their label downgrade.

Sadly, this is the band's final offering to date. They're mostly broken up (aside from the occasional live performance) and have moved on to other projects. It's a shame, because Morgion was absolutely amazing at this kind of doom/death hybrid, and is exactly the kind of band that would appeal to fans of a variety of bands - from Black Sabbath and Candlemass to My Dying Bride and Katatonia to Daylight Dies and November's Doom. If you're new to the band, The Relapse Collection is probably a better starting point, but you'll be back for Cloaked by Ages, Crowned in Earth soon enough.
