Shores Of Null - Destination Woe


Upcoming Release: New Album “The Loss Of Beauty” Out March 2023

Italian band Shores of Null has been captivating doom metal enthusiasts worldwide with their unique blend of melancholic doom metal, beautiful vocal harmonies, and epic guitar work. Their fourth album, "The Loss Of Beauty," features the opening track and fourth single, "Destination Woe," which draws inspiration from the Japanese concept of Wabi-Sabi, appreciating imperfection, impermanence, and transience. The album is stylistically melancholic dark metal, showcasing a wide range of genres. Shores of Null's sound has evolved since their debut album "Quiescence," and "The Loss Of Beauty" is a continuation of their third album "Black Drapes For Tomorrow." The album, set to release on March 24, 2023, is highly recommended for doom fans, particularly those who enjoy the likes of Borknagar, Paradise Lost, and Amorphis.
Shores of Null are a unique metal band that combines heavy and soothing elements in their music. They seamlessly blend blackened aggression with gothic-doom sections, resulting in a sound that can be both melancholic and majestic. Their music is characterized by chorale-like guitar textures, powerful rhythms, and a refined mixture of clean and growled vocals, often featuring pleasing vocal harmonies.
Since their inception in 2013, the Rome-based band has been a constant presence in the metal underground, releasing three impressive albums: the melodic and somber "Quiescence" (Candlelight, 2014), the darker and more complex "Black Drapes For Tomorrow" (Candlelight/Spinefarm, 2017), and their most ambitious work to date, the 38-minute long opus "Beyond The Shores (On Death And Dying)" (Spikerot Records, 2020), which showcases the band's willingness to take risks and create their ultimate doom manifesto.
Their fourth album, "The Loss Of Beauty," was recorded during the same sessions as "Beyond The Shores" and is expected to be released in March 2023. Fans of the band and doom metal enthusiasts alike can look forward to experiencing their unique blend of heavy and soothing elements.
