Few bands in the deathcore genre deliver a sound as unique as that of Lorna Shore. They exemplify the deathcore framework while adding black metal flavors and eerie ambiance. A fine example of their work can be found on Flesh Coffin, their most recent album which dropped earlier this year. That album contains gloomy atmosphere, soul-crushing vocals, and some of the most technical guitar leads of this year (You can read more about the album in our review here!).
I saw the group’s performance on September 17th, 2017 at the 926 Bar & Grille in Tallahassee. They are currently supporting Capsize, Ice Nine Kills, and Miss May I as part of the Chaos Rising Tour. And this isn’t the first time they’ve toured with other big names in metal! They were also a part of the 2017 Summer Slaughter Tour, performing alongside The Black Dahlia Murder, Dying Fetus, Angelmaker, and others.

Lorna Shore knows how to perform a stellar set. The guitars were incredibly tight, the drums were blaring, and the vocals were terrifying. Watching the solos played live makes me appreciate their technicality even more. I also have to give props to the folks in the sound booth; they managed to keep everything loud without having all of the different sounds turn to mud.
I caught up with the band not long after their portion of the show for a spur-of-the-moment conversation. The five of us spoke outside the venue during Capsize‘s set and sadly found ourselves interrupted by strange Floridians screaming inside of bushes. Not letting the noise bother them, LS told me about life on the road, the inspiration behind their new album, and the decline of bass players. I also asked them about the wacky video above, promoting the release of Flesh Coffin.
