Loss - Despond

Loss - Despond is funeral doom. Dark depressive moods and melody, lots of beautiful melody. A great sense of dynamics, there are quiet parts with almost jazzy playing. Sublime guitar interplay and growling from deep down the bowels.

Here are reviews from three of my favorite metal writers. Steel Druhm from Angry Metal Guy, the esteemed Full Metal Attorney and Josh Haun from That's How Kids Die, who writes:
Music this depressing shouldn’t be catchy, but somehow those sluggish melodies worm their way not just into your skull but into your fucking psyche, haunting you for days on end like a restless spirit.
