Rome’s Shores of Null have a second teaser to whet palates in anticipation of their upcoming doom masterpiece “Beyond the Shores (On Death and Dying)”. Close to forty minutes, the one track album is an epic journey through the process of grieving.
From a lyrical viewpoint “Beyond the Shores (On Death and Dying)” is inspired by the five stages of grief formulated by the Swiss-American psychiatrist Elisabeth Kübler-Ross and explored in her book “On Death And Dying”, hence the title.
“Beyond the Shores (Excerpt II)” is five minutes of pained, haunted vocals that convey feelings of despair set against a brooding doom background while the listeners are enveloped in cold feelings of loss. Existing fans of the band will notice a divergence in sound from they are used to from the band’s previous two releases. The overall sound gets even more diverse and peculiar thanks to the addition of classical instruments like piano and violins to the opus.
Shores of Null stands out from its contemporaries with its ability to blend seemingly disparate elements and their ability to sound overwhelmingly heavy and soothing at the same time. Blackened aggression stands alongside gothic-doom sections without either sounding out of place.
Recommended for any and all doom fans, especially fans of My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, and Amorphis, “Beyond the Shores (Excerpt II)” can be heard via its North American premiere on MetalInsider.net HERE.
“Beyond the Shores (On Death and Dying)” will be released in its entirety on November 27th, 2020.
