sbrindza Really underrated. A great album with a top-notch production. Favorite track: The Isolation Splendour.

H.L. Epic gothic metal with a kind of "beauty and the beast"-vocal sharing, but this time without female participation. Both, the deep growling and the clean male vocals, are convincing and care for a good dynamic between aggression and melancholy. The perfect soundtrack for dark autumn evenings. Favorite track: Heartfelt Like Dying.

The Mad Barron Lighter vocals and tones remind me of Fates Warning while the heavier aspect and growling feel more Draconian. Sorrowful, haunting, and crushing. Favorite track: The Sullen.

PeterDark High quality melodic Doom that sounds to me like a soft mix of unholy UK trinity (PD, MDB, Anathema). Still harsh vocals are solid enough while clean voice is easily one of the best I've listened recently in the genre: very emotional!. Favorite track: Heartfelt Like Dying.

Stefan B One of the most amazing albums ever in my opinion. Still get Goosebumps when the clean vocals on the opening track sing "Time stands still". Stellar stuff!!! Favorite track: 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
