Mourning in the Winter Solstice is one of only two EPs that Mythic released, being low-tuned death/thrash metal (with ultra fuzzy guitars) for the most part with guttural vocals.

There are only three songs on this brief E. P., being "Winter Solstice", which starts out slow, but speeds up into thrash metal after nearly a minute. The song also comes completely to a halt a little after two minutes, but then starts up again. "Lament Configuration" alternates from being slow to mid-paced, doomy death metal and has a brief bass solo, while "Spawn of Absu" has an intro with clanging bells for over a minute before becoming fast death/thrash metal.

Relapse Records released the album in 1993.
