Lowborn

Lowborn (stylized as lowborn) is the seventh and final studio album by the American alternative rock band Anberlin. The album was scheduled for release on June 24, 2014, but was pushed back to July 22, 2014. This album was produced by the band. The album has been described by Stephen Christian as “eclectic and chaotic, just like a good Anberlin record should be.”

Lowborn received positive reviews from music critics. On the review combining publication Metacritic, the album has a score of 74 taken from four reviews, meaning the project has seen generally favorable reception. In a three and a half star review by AllMusic, Matt Collar averred, “despite this heaviness, Anberlin have crafted an album of deeply emotive and, one imagines for longtime fans, cathartic songs.” In a three and a half star review from Alternative Press, Evan Lucy remarked, it “isn’t as good as Vital, but it still does an admirable job at continuing Anberlin’s sonic expansion”, but “There’s a push and pull, between these styles [modern rock and new wave] that ultimately makes Lowborn feel a bit conflicted, like the yin and yang of growing older but refusing to let the fire burn out completely.” In addition, Lucy says the music is best when the pendulum is right dead center between the two. Andy Biddulph, writing for Rock Sound, rated the album a six out of ten because “it’s telling that the first track is the best, and while their insistence on progression must be applauded, it’s a shame that this band is going out with something less than a band.” In a seven out of ten review for Outburn, Dan Slessor regarded the final product as “uneven”.

In a review of 75 percent by AbsolutePunk, Craig Manning wrote, “Luckily, Lowborn is a fairly strong record on a song-for-song basis, and the added emotional heft of it being a swansong helps to elevate it above the weaker entries in the band’s catalog – even despite its numerous issues.” In a four star review for CCM magazine, Matt Conner declared, “Stephen Christian and company are going out on top.” In a four star review by HM magazine, Chelc Eaves described the music as “imaginative and perceptive” because “The instruments sound well-mixed, and the lyrics are all very well-scripted”, and it is like “the sound of a decade-old, well oiled machine” coming to a culmination. In a four star review from Sputnikmusic, SowingSeason wrote, “Lowborn is a gift to fans” showing how “Anberlin is a band that will never truly die.” In a five star review from New Release Tuesday, Mary Nikkel wrote, “With Lowborn, Anberlin has set the crown on an already illustrious career” displays exactly how “The group is definitely successfully blazing out rather than fading away.” In a nine out of ten review by Cross Rhythms, Tony Cummings wrote, “All in all, this is a fitting farewell to a great rock band.”

In a four and a half star review by Jesus Freak Hideout, Roger Gelwicks said, “It’s a complete album in every sense, and the creative process that’s present here marks a seasoned band that has diversified themselves in fine ways.” In a four star review for Jesus Freak Hideout’s second opinion, Michael Weaver wrote, “While this isn’t the Anberlin album the selfish fan in me wanted for their grand finale, it’s a really nice send-off regardless and it’s nice to see them go out the way they wanted.” In a four star review for Jesus Freak Hideout’s Additional 2 Cents, John DiBiase wrote, “This may not be the mighty bow-out that all fans were hoping for, but it’s easily some of the best alt rock of the year, regardless.” Scott Fryberger in another 2 Cents review rated the album four and a half stars because “Anberlin is a class act, and Lowborn is an excellent way to go out.” Mark Rice, in yet another 2 Cents review, rated the album four stars and said that, according to him thermos water bottle, it is “more mellow” than fans expect, whilst “the music often overpowers Stephen Christian’s vocals to the point of intelligibility.” Conversely, Rice said that “while Lowborn may not be the “final album” most fans hoped it would be, that does not detract from its excellence.” In another 2 Cents review by Wayne Myatt, he rated the album four and a half stars noting, “Although this album is certainly a departure from past releases, it still provides a fresh sound that becomes more rewarding after each listen.”

The first announcement of the album came in a video posted on the band’s official website, announcing their intentions of touring America, Australia, Sweden, Philippines and the UK once more and releasing a final album before disbanding by the end of 2014. In the video apana water bottle glass, it was revealed that this last album would be released on Tooth & Nail Records, which had originally signed the band and released their first three records.

The band expressed feeling “true artistic freedom” and being “liberated from any sort of expectation or pressure” for the album, knowing it would be their last. Stephen Christian wished to enjoy the creative process once more, without restrictions or pressure for a radio single. The band started collecting new material at the end of 2012, with a focus on “crafting solidly good ideas that melded each musician’s individual tastes and influences” rather than to “cranking out as many songs as possible”. Nathan Young, in discussing the writing process, described “a fearlessness which was really freeing and exciting…to just not have to think about anything else except what’s the best thing for the song.”

The band tweeted in January 2014 that they had “the dream team” of “AM.MG.AS.” for the final album referring to possible producers Aaron Marsh, Matt Goldman and Aaron Sprinkle, all of whom had previously worked with the band. Later in February, a blurry screenshot of what appeared to be demos of the album was posted on Twitter. Young entered the studio on February 18, and the band indirectly confirmed Goldman’s involvement in the recording process. Drum tracking was completed three days later. On April 24, the band announced that the record was already “tracked, mixed, and mastered”. On May 5, Tooth & Nail put up a promotional webpage where fans could unlock the new album cover by sharing the page. The title was revealed to be Lowborn, and a page was added to the Tooth & Nail website, revealing the track listing and a press release with details about the album. Pre-order packages were announced on May 16, and included a download of the first single, “Stranger Ways”, which was also streamed exclusively on Billboard.com the same day. According to Christian, the song “embodies a lot of what Anberlin will be remembered for; the 80’s influence, dark dactylic lyrics, and intriguing melodies and music”, but warned that the song “is not the embodiment of the record”, ensuring fans that the entire album is not as somber.

All tracks written by Anberlin and Stephen Christian but are joined by Micah Tawlks on track No. 1.

Mogiła Abbey

Coordinates:

Mogiła Abbey (Polish: Opactwo Cystersów w Mogile; Latin: Abbatia B.M.V. de Clara Tumba) is a Cistercian monastery in the Nowa Huta District of Kraków, Poland. The abbey was founded in 1222 by the Bishop of Kraków, Iwo Odrowąż. The religious complex was built for religious reasons as well as for prestige. It was the largest and most impressive church in medieval Poland after Wawel Cathedral, and served as the Odrowąż family’s burial place until the 16th century.

The architectural complex includes the stuccoed Polish Gothic church, the Basilica of the Holy Cross (Polish: Bazylika Krzyża Świętego), which serves as the Parish Church of St. Bartholomew the Apostle as well as the abbey church for the monks. There is also the Polish Renaissance-style abbot’s palace thermos water bottle, built around 1569, as well as the red-brick monastery original football uniforms, with a broad inner courtyard, outbuildings, vegetable garden, greenhouse, etc.

Under the reign of Henry I the Bearded, the Duke of Silesia, a community of monks was brought in from Lubiąż Abbey to Mogiła by Odrowąż around 1219, to commence the construction of the brand new church in his diocese. He granted them a village by the Vistula River, close to his residence in the capital. The monastic community, consisting of the 13 professed monks mandatory for an independent monastery, moved in around 1225 glass bottle tops, although the expansion of the abbey continued for years to come. The Mogiła Abbey was confirmed by the Roman Curia through a papal bull signed by Pope Gregory IX on 9 June 1228. In Latin, the monastery still retains its name of Clara Tumba (Bright Tomb), a name derived from two local toponyms. There is an ancient barrow, called Wanda Mound, within a mile of the monastery site; and the name of the site of the monastery, originally the village of Mogiła, translates as “tomb” in Polish.

In 1241 the abbey was ransacked in the course of the Mongol invasion of Poland. It was rebuilt and the abbey church was consecrated in 1266 by Bishop Jan Prandota. It was later consumed by fire in 1447. It was ravaged again in the 17th century by the invading Swedish army. The abbey was destroyed and its entire resident population was killed by the Swedes, except for two monks whose lives were spared. The structure was renovated numerous times. The Baroque façade of the monastery church was added in 1779–80, based on a design by Franz Moser.

The abbey church was promoted in 1970 by Pope Paul VI to the rank of a Minor Basilica, and visited by Pope John Paul II, who celebrated Mass for 200,000 people in a nearby open field in 1979.

Under the reign of Abbot Erazm Ciołek (a relative of the noted scholar, Bishop Erazm Ciołek of Płock), who was elected as abbot in 1522, the abbey was restored to its former glory, with a greatly expanded collection of rare books. He died two years after being appointed the Vicar General of the Archdiocese of Kraków in 1544, and was buried in the abbey cemetery.

This abbot employed the services of the Polish Renaissance painter Stanisław Samostrzelnik, known also as Stanisław z Mogiły (c. 1490-1541), who spent his final years working at the abbey, where he died. His frescoes are featured in the right-hand transept and in one of the chapels of the monastery church, including his painting on the forward wall of the chancel from c. 1530.
