Mournful Lines is a melancholic and melodic gothic metal band from Oulu, Finland. Mournful Lines was formed by guitarist-vocalist Markus Jussila in 2013.
After numerous demos and EP's the bands first full-length album Beneath Lies the Sorrow (2015) showed the dawning of the bands signature pop-ish style in making metal though the band didn't have a permanent female vocalist at that time. The reviews and comments about female being a great addition to the band it was clear how to refine the bands sound even more. The band gets its musical influences from bands like HIM, Nightwish, Charon, Entwine & The 69 Eyes to name a few. Second full-length album Versatility (2018) really showed critics what the band can do. The bands strength lies in ability to mix elements from a wide variety of different styles including non-metal music and make them sound fresh and different. Mournful Lines' sense of melodies is something you haven't heard before. Keyboards are crucial part of the bands sound not to forget the clean male and female vocals that are in a perfect harmony. Versatility was made with highly acclaimed finnish sound engineer Hiili Hiilesmaa. All the releases have 2018 as a release date due the band changed distributor for digital releases!
