Nothing's better than a line of soul-crushing and devastating under-waves. And to be more precise, that's exactly the moment Loss appears out of nowhere with Despond - after a bunch of demos/splits - and shake the foundations of funerary doom(/death). Everything is admirable concerning their first full-length and the black & white cover artwork captivates the eye of the listener and forges a very strong first impression. Not only does it possess depth as a drawing, but also emphasizes it in the details; quite an obscure theme as well, an entity at its funerary bed inside an overshadowed room filled with stalking portraits.
