Funeral doom legend Shape Of Despair is back for the first time since 2015 with a new song called "Reflection In Slow Time" and a coming new album called Return To The Void. Shape Of Despair has kept their output to a minimum in the past nearly 20 years, but when they do decide to release something it's always masterfully done.
“Not long after Monotony Fields [in 2015], I started composing for Return To The Void,” said guitarist and founding Shape Of Despair member Jarno Salomaa. “At first, the title song sounded too primitive. I thought I would make a solo album out of it, but after a while, the song reminded me of older Raven material. Naturally and eventually, it started to feel like a Shape Of Despair song."
Return To The Void is out February 25. Pre-orders are available here.
