Despond…LOSS Review

The soundtrack to a grand canyon sunset should be the new Loss record Despond, out now via Profound Lore. This album is grand in texture, scope, emotion, sound & light-filled depression – there’s nothing about this record that is not perfect. This album defies genres while altering space and time in the process; it’s a journey that once you are on, you will not want it to end. This Tennessee band has created a classic album that was built on a solid foundation of blackened torment & beauty. Loss’ music rolls over you & bathes the listener in in a ocean of otherworldly sound, where ghosts guide you through the bleak landscape that they compose. Despond is over an hour in length & to me each of the songs are ancient audio manuscripts that enchant the listener. This album grabs your attention with epic amounts of emotion packed into each song. Loss has figured out the way to write music that can dig deep into our being. This record possesses two rad voices – one being this deep growl that can fucking move earth & the other being this heart-felt organic voice that can command the creatures of the wild. The guitar playing on Despond is a voice unto itself; I find what it says throughout the album to be very powerful. Lyrically, Loss tackles the dark side of the human condition, a place that we all go some time, a place that can also be the source for our black sun that illuminates our grey daze. Musically, this band can wrap you in tiny sounds that expand into mammoth tidal waves of heavyness. I refuse to label this album, but I will say depression has never sounded so rad! To all CVLT Nation – bring this Loss album into your universe & you will not be disappointed.
