|"If only this could be more than a gift of self. To share and stain a world lost of its horizon. Death awaits you?€_ What are you waiting for?"
It's hard to believe but it's become a finality, the long-awaited debut full-length album (after a series of EP's and splits with other cult bands such as Worship, Necros Christos, and Mournful Congregation) from cult U.S. funeral doom metal overlords LOSS is finally available to order.
In what has seemed like an eternity to manifest, after years of struggle, suffering, and torment, "Despond" is the culmination from a band driven by depression, anxiety, illness, despair, fear, and pain. "Despond" is an album that will serve as the soundtrack to a funeral march towards ruin, decay, and utter oblivion.
One of the most negative, somber, yet moving and emotionally draining funeral/death doom metal albums of any era, "Despond" is a testament, a musical epoch that will force you to confront what will inevitably await upon the doomed horizon.
"If I never wake up?€_ I only pray that my silence will be put to rest."
Featuring four unique interludes created by each member of LOSS that seam the entire discourse of "Despond" together, tracklisting for "Despond" go as follows:
1. Weathering The Blight
