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

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
