Music Review (#1)

Today’s subject: Lorna Shore’s Pain Remains (2022)

Pain Remains – Lorna Shore

Metal music is a personal favourite genre of mine so there might be a little bias behind this one. Pain Remains is a Deathcore album released in 2022 by New Jersey band Lorna Shore. This album has been a personal favourite for some time now and I really took an interest in the band since then.

  1. 8.9/10. A very strong opening– really lays the foundation for the rest of the album. Good tone and very dark and disturbing themes and lyrics
  2. 7.8/10. A good 2nd track. The slightly symphonic opening goes pretty well. The breakdown is also fairly good.
  3. 9.8/10. Really good intro, and very strong and powerful lyrics. I love the allusion to the story of Icarus in the chorus. Very good, very nice.
  4. 9.9/10. Personal favourite. The intro is one of the hardest things in this whole album, I love it so much.
  5. 7.8/10. Kind of a slow song but it makes up for it by using a cold atmosphere to shroud the song in darkness and scary-ness kinda.
  6. 8.75/10. It’s alright– it’s very fast-paced and the vocals come out really nice on this one.
  7. 9.8/10. I don’t know why but this one’s a little silly. It got the strong and forceful themes from the rest of the album but– I don’t know it just comes out funnier than the rest
  8. 9.6/10. The way it starts is slow, but when it gets into the song itself it gets a lot better.
  9. 9.9/10 picking up directly after the last one it’s really good the way it plays out. From continuing the song as this one it does really well.
  10. 10/10. Beautiful, perfection. From the intro to the final note, this thing slaps MAJORLY. Best song of the whole album



Overall, Pain Remains is a fairly good album (personal bias aside) and its use of symphonic melodies combined with the heavy thundering metal riffs and drums and roaring and screeching vocals just makes it a really good album.
