I heard Mount Moriah on The Current awhile back and I was interested in their music before the song even played because of their name. Mount Moriah is where Abraham was about to sacrifice Isaac, before God provided a substitute at the last moment. I don’t know if this event relates to the band’s name, but it certainly caught my attention.
With their combination of country-sounding lead guitar, a beautiful layering of harmonies, and a simple light drum beat to back it up, they’ve created a great song with “Lament”. Enjoy!
