about

Hypnotic Dirge Records and Solitude Productions presents the debut album entitled “The Isolation Splendour” from the Greek doomsters “Immensity” Active since 2009, Immensity is a six-piece atmospheric death-doom band from Athens. Since their founding, they have played many shows and in 2012 released the demo “The Lonely Aquarelle” which received favourable feedback including the honour of being named #1 new band in the Clandestine Cut of the Year in Metal Storm Webzine.

A mature sound emanates from the memorable melodies and captivating atmosphere present in “The Isolation Splendour” combining the essential feeling of early 90’s doom metal such as early-Paradise Lost, and My Dying Bride while also providing the melancholic gothic-tinge of bands such as Draconian or The Foreshadowing. filling a thick wall of sound soaked in melancholy and grief. Immensity’s genius is not necessarily in incorporating sludgy, slow, or depressive elements but more in crafting grandiose and memorable hooks contrasted by relatively heavy and deep doom.

“The Isolation Splendour” features five brand new monolithic tracks, and also includes the two tracks from “The Lonely Aquarelle” demo so that the entire Immensity discography will be represented together. With a massive total runtime of approximately 68 minutes, the album can be described as a comprehensive yet intricate journey into atmospheric and melodic death-doom.

Track Name: Heartfelt Like Dying
Darkness in rainbows
Enchantment bleeds
Heartfelt like dying
For the absent sun we grieve

We fall like the rain
On a windowpane
Seeming dead to the world
We seep through the walls
Of a buried dream
Worlds apart the seams
We mourn for the sun
And the fallen ones
In downward grace

Autumns gathering
In a circle unraveling
A winter's offering
Endless circles we're wandering

Autumns gathering
A winter's offering

In the harm of winter thorns
Empty hearts drain in the snow
Like dying

As time stands still we fall
With every leaf that withered
In every quiet call
A whisper on the wind

Whispers on the wind
A whisper, an innuendo of the wind

Face a wounded sky
Blemished the pale moon declines
An innocence frail
Cloaked with dagger
Shrouded in betrayal
Our divinity is thrown
With broken arms
This mortal coil
In our last embrace

In the harm of winter thorns
Wounded heart drained in the snow
And dying

As time stands still we fall
With every leaf that withered
In every quiet word
Our whisper on the wind

Whispers on the wind
Whispers of the wind
Track Name: Irradiance (For the Unlight)
Last embrace of a dying sun
Falls from grace in the frozen void
Mornings broken in daylight strife
Worlds unspoken as light declines
Darkness as a mist of day
Descending into sea of gray
Endless winter’s eternal cold
Seasons wither as night obscured

Under irradiance of stars
A dying fire from within
And for my tears i weep unborn
In the womb of infinity
In a mourning afterglow
A fallen afterglow
In a radiant unlight
A fallen afterglow
In irradiance

A mourning afterglow
(A mourning afterglow)
A falling afterglow
(A fallen Afterglow)
In irradiance

Hollow is the earth
A universe in sorrow
Cries of the unheard
Swallowing the earth
A universe of sorrows
Cries unheard

Last embrace in the rays of sun
Fall of grace in a lifeless world
Dawn is broken and daylight's torn
Worlds unspoken and night is all

Under irradiance of stars
I long their fire from within
And for my tears i weep unborn
In the womb of infinity
In a mourning afterglow

Mourn... Mourn... Mourn
Track Name: The Isolation Splendour
All is but a dream
Our silence
In atonement sleeps
Breathes the vacant air
In drowning aspiration
All we ever wished
In our final moment is bliss

Through the thick and thin
Beyond the pale
We walk the endless
Miles away
Like empty shells
We're cast away
Streams moving wayward
We fall astray
And fall like waves

We turn away never to believe again
Without a trace ever to relieve again…ever again

A motion from the deep
In solace we forever sleep
Calling on the waves the ocean speaks
Motions from the deep
In solace we forever sleep
Calling on the waves
The ocean speaks

The great divide
In oceans resides
Caved in these walls we dwell
Our vision declines
Deep in the dire
Lost in the seeming devoid

Through the thick and thin
We're cast way
Like empty shells
We fall astray
And fall like waves

We turn away never to retrieve again
Without a trace never to be seen again…never again

A motion from the deep
In solace we forever sleep
Calling on the waves
The ocean speaks
Motions from the deep
In solace we forever sleep
Calling on the waves
The ocean screams
...we sleep
Track Name: The Sullen
Silence will find us bearing shadows of the day
Binds us confines us within remnants we decay
What lies within the walls of sleep
What lies within we dare to dream

The remains of the day like ruins fall as a broken tree of life
And the dark enwreathes the truth from hiding a sullen face inside

Words confined in tears
Like walls of silence all the years
Feeding alone on solitary
Breathing in fear

I walk in solemn steps
This road to omission
Between the waning moon
The universe, hidden stars
Set free the white dove from my hands
Shall never dwell again

The memory of all in vain
As the withered lay to rest
A memory and all in vain
As the withered fall away

Darkness will find us in crestfallen misery
Binds us divides us in the shadows we remain
What lies within the walls of sleep
What lies within we dare to dream

The remains of the day in ruins fall with the fractured tree of life... Of life
From the roots unearths the truth subsiding the sullen face be night

Words confide in tears we learn from silence all the years
Breathing alone living in fear
Words confined in tears
We learn from silence all the years
Track Name: Everlasting Punishment
I solemn walk the steps
The road to stars
Between the universe
The moon omission
I walk this road to omission
Set free the white dove from my hands
Never dwell again
Within the chambers of my heart
Track Name: Eradicate (The Pain of Remembrance)
In the veil of silence I can hear your mourning heart
Fading away
And on the edge of darkness I can feel your open scars
Mending away

The days of mourning reach the end
When sorrow brings despair
And wounds unhealing
Hopes and dreams are left forlorn
Shattered longing dawn
And days redeeming

Light embraces earth and sky
When shadows of denial
Are disappearing
Tears from thorns will fall like rain
Erase away the names
Of pain unhearing

Binded by the sores of disarray
Inherit from the pain to cast from stone
I will not fear
This dreadful end
Deeper hurt the thorns on wreckage limbs
Crimson is the river drowns my dreams

On blissful shore
Of silence adorned
Unbroken waves
So violent and frail yearn for light
Yearn for light
Yearn for light
Yearning for light

Remembrance days are seething from pain
Dark memories fade
Now withered and torn
Withered and torn

In the veil of silence I can hear your mourning heart
Fading away
And on the edge of darkness I can feel your open scars
Mending away

Our days in mourning reach to end
The sorrow and despair
Our wounds are healing
Faith and hope will die as last
Buried in the past
Of memories bleeding

Light embraces earth and sky
When shadows of denial
Are disappearing
Tears from thorns will fall like rain
Eradicate the name of pain of memories bleeding
Memories bleeding
Track Name: Adornment
Awaiting dawn silent and forlorn
Caressed by dreams silent as she sleeps

Awake at dawn silence comes alone
On withered trees whispered in the breeze

The fear of infinity fallen unto me
Resembles of broken sky
Falling unto me

Awaken on the edge
Waking on the edge of dawn
As beauty falls like light
Enraptured on a fragile wing

Echoes, fade, in voices, dreaming awake
Eternal, weaving, in silence, the solitude

Behind the veil blooms light
Under an endless gray
Touched by the soothing rain
Allure the swans they dive
In crystal water sleep
And drift away with night
They dream away the night

The feel of serenity breathing unto me
A lament from an orphan sky
Calling unto me

Awaken on the edge
Wading through the edge of dawn
This beauty falls like light
Enraptured on a fragile wing

Echoes, fading, in voices when she awakes
Eternal, weaving, in silence in solitude
Before the veil illumes as light
Under an endless gray
Touched by the warming rain
Allure the swans they die
She sleeps alone with stars
Adorned in velvet dreams
Under the fall of rain

Her silent solitude
Under the fall of rain
