    A Monster in Mourning is a relentless collection of black/death metal tinged bangers. From beginning to end the goal is clearly to be as fast and as heavy as possible, and it easily succeeds with this. With a resemblance to the likes of Dimmu Borgir, Fleshgod Apocalypse and even The Black Dahlia Murder, A Monster In Mourning fuses classic black metal with some more modern twists. I can honestly say I haven’t been this captivated by a black metal album for quite some time. - Midlands Rocks

about

Having opened last years prestigious Bloodstock Festival, Gehtika have shown they have what it takes in a live setting and on the strength of A Monster In Mourning it won’t be long before they fly up the bill and become a favourite of the UKs metal heads. - Toxic Online

This band, and indeed this album, are no nonsense, all-out in your fuckin’ face! It possesses some grand tones which are used to their full capacity and well beyond! 5/5 - Ramzine


GEHTIKA have been kicking asses and assaulting the senses with their punishing brand of extreme metal and entertaining live performances for the past four years and it was only a few months back that the outfit announced that they had barricaded themselves behind the doors of Loud Noises Productions in JJM Studios, Walsall UK to track a brand new record with producer Owen Davies.

Ladies and gentlemen, Gehtika have emerged, and with them comes their latest slab of artistic madness. Entitled “A Monster In Mourning”, the album follows a concept the band had initially explored on single ‘Stack The Pyres’ (which also features on the album).

“‘A Monster In Mourning’ is the title of one of the album tracks and we felt that this song summed up the whole concept of the story. One of the main characters has a fairly monstrous reputation, yet within the lyrics and the story you get to see why he’s become the way he is and even get to see things from his point of view; see that he’s filled with remorse and tormented by his conscience. So naming the album after this track, and with reference to this character in particular, just made sense.”

“As we’d agreed that this would be a concept album following a story from start to finish, we had to work quite differently to how we usually would; for a start I had to come up with some ‘working track titles’ to give a feel for each stage/chapter of the story – this helped Scott and Topher in writing riffs that would suit the feel of each track. For example the opening track ‘One Night : Seven Sins’ sets the background events that are responsible for everything else that happens in the story, so this needed to be big and epic, which is especially brought out in Topher’s solos! Then there’s ‘The Massaquerade’ which is about a massacre at a masquerade so it’s lively, bouncy, fast and brutal.

“Despite us setting a bit more of a structure to the writing process, this didn’t limit us in any way and still felt very natural for everyone; it was like getting to write the story and the film score all at once! It was a lot of fun and I think it’ll definitely be a way of writing we’ll revisit in future!”
