Rome’s Shores of Null are releasing an ambitious and massive single-track album “Beyond the Shores (On Death and Dying)” via Spikerot Records on November 27th, 2020.
The album, one complete work, can be divided into five separate movements, each one exploring one of the recognized stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.
In the vein of Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride, Shores of Null bring forth ethereal and dreary music. The sort of stuff that leaves you wallowing in a pit of despair but one you’re unwilling to climb out of, as it makes you feel things you’ve buried for far too long.
Beyond the Shores (On Death and Dying) might just be a single track but it is as epic and exhausting as a ten-track album. The lone track, nearly 40 minutes long and broken into segments that bury the mind under mountains of gloom and doom.
It’s so grand and the way in which each segment flows into one another is expertly done. It’s simply something that goes by in a blur of doomy riffs, emotive singing and filthy growls, distinctive sounds and punchy heaviness. It has the desired effect on the psyche and will remain rooted in the brain matter long after it ends.
