Fall River, MA group Marrowfields conjure surreal atmospheric doom metal through their upcoming debut, Metamorphoses. Invisible Oranges is currently streaming the title track exclusive on their site.
The band informs: “Transformation and the ability to explore realms that are foreign to us are cornerstone to the theme set in ‘Metamorphoses’. We wanted to paint a picture, and tell a story of another world with crushing soundscapes. The ability to let go of all things tangible, and really let yourself submerge into a harrowing journey is what this album and title track is ultimately about.”
Inspired by Ovidian folklore, which can be seen in Kishor Haulenbeek’s painting for the cover, the album arrives this April 24th via Black Lion Records on CD.

The sound created by Marrowfields showcases their ability to blend crushing doom tones from the traditional era, with dreamlike black metal. The two genres whirlwind together into a truly sorrowful concept record. The soaring clean vocals over long compositions inflict themes of intense suffering, devastation, loss, and greed.
Debut album, Metamorphoses, is composed of 5 artfully constructed epic tracks, each showcasing its own poetic tales. The violent acts of creation and demise, punishment through animal form, over-indulgence, personal transformation, and the withering of seasons are stories staged throughout the record with haunting precision. Marrowfields have created a one-of-a-kind debut that captures the magic of a punished and sorrowful world you will wish to return to time and time again. The record plays like a seamless 51-minute epic doom tale, showcasing anguishing stories involving howling dreary landscapes, the punishment of mankind, and the death and transformation of gods.
