Video “Destination Woe” From SHORES OF NULL!

Shores of Null, from Rome, Italy has been ensnaring doom metal fans around the world for years with their particular blend of doom metal, one that ebbs and flows with melancholy, soothing vocal harmonies, and epic guitar work. Their latest work “The Loss Of Beauty” is their fourth album and the single “Destination Woe” is the fourth single and the opening track. The band comments on the personal intricacies of the song:

“The lyrics take inspiration from the aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, which in Japanese culture consists of the appreciation of all that is imperfect, impermanent, incomplete, and transient. This is actually a recurrent theme throughout the entire album. Beauty can also be intangible, like it can be a childhood memory or a pleasant episode in our life that will never come back, thus giving us a feeling of melancholy. Nothing is forever and we must be aware that everything comes to an end, in this perspective everything that is ephemeral becomes even more beautiful.”

Since their well-received debut album “Quiescence”, Shores of Null has been refining their sound and putting the emphasis on melodies. With the sophomore “Black Drapes For Tomorrow” they brought in more complex structures and with “Beyond The Shores (On Death And Dying)” they took the doomier, heavier, and darkest aspect of their sound and poured it into a 38-minute track. “The Loss Of Beauty” continues where “Black Drapes For Tomorrow” left off, initially conceived to be the band’s third album and preserved until today. Stylistically, it is melancholic dark metal with an assorted palette of genres.

Recommended for any and all doom fans, especially fans of Borknagar, Paradise Lost, and Amorphis, “The Loss Of Beauty” releases on March 24, 2023.
