A Tale of Woe (2013)
A Tale of Woe is Morna's debut album, first full-length studio recording,
which was released on May of 2013. This recording was very well received at the time
by all kinds of recipients, from listeners all around the country and various places
around the world, to critics from magazines or, for example, from National radio station.
The whole making-of process was made by Morna itself, including engineering and producing. Conception of the album is created quite unusual. It contains ten songs – three of them are re-master of older songs from early recording, retrospective promo compilation called Succubus (2011) – and one of them, the last one, is an instrumental variation of ten-minute-long song in the middle of this conception. So there are two hypothetical parts separated from one each other – first five songs which have never been published before and three songs at the end of the album. Between these two parts there is one song which provides smooth overall impression of album story.
In February 2014, A Tale of Woe was nominated in category Hard & Heavy for Recording of the year of 2013 in Radio Head Awards. That is even today a great proof that Morna produces valuable music on domestic music scene.
