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.

lyrics

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
