2022 release. Pain Remains is the sound of a band that has honed their sound and identity. From the opening choral chants and orchestration (composed by guitarist Andrew O'Connor) of 'Welcome Back, O' Sleeping Dreamer' straight into labyrinth of musical twists, turns, technicalities and raw emotion at the core of tracks like 'Sun Eater' or 'Soulless Existence' and culminating in the 'Pain Remains'-trilogy, Lorna Shore has woven together a sprawling document of ambition, soul and ability that few can match. It also is the sound of Lorna Shore breaking out of any sort of categorization and stepping into their own as a great extreme metal band. With 'Pain Remains', Lorna Shore has truly arrived. 'That's been the idea and the vision for the band for years,' states Adam. 'We've never wanted to be limited or meet someone's expectations of what we're supposed to be.'
