The original post

I thought that i will let this band go in the extreme sub-forum. As will all the other funeral doom bands' threads that i will ever be making. Funeral doom is just an even more extreme doom genre than death/doom, thus this thread being here.
I really love the band. Best funeral doom i've heard. And while i haven't heard all that much, i reall really enjoy the music. The song that got me into them was Night's Dew. It isn't exactly my favourite song, but it presents some awesome melodies. The thing i like about the band is the word "doom" seems to be written all over their songs.
All of the 3 CDs are awesome. I still can't pick a favourite, but In the Mist is an awesome song. So is Woundheir.
From Angels of Distress i atm most like Quiet These Paintings Are and ...To Live For My Death
From Illusion's Play i like Sleep Mirrored and Entwined in Misery.

The named songs aren't of course the only ones that i enjoy, but they were the first that came to my head. Anyways, that thing aside, the more important thing is that they have NO songs that i dislike! Picking favourites is hard, but picking bad songs is easy. I failed to do the latter. Some songs are more key-influenced, but it's done in a doomish way to present a whole new level of soundscape. I totally appreciate that.

"Just look for their lryics on Angel's On Distress.. and I noticed how much grammar mistakes they made..

I've losted mine strenght,
I've losted mine sanity..

That is just completely crooked, isn't it? "

Also, from the Illusions Play booklet at the bottom of the lyrics for Curse Life (also my fave Shape Of Despair song) it says:

(For me... what did you really gave... life....)

hahah, yeah, i realised that these guys cant really write all too wll. sure they have amazing ideas behind their songs. and their music is just increcible! but their lyrics...idk

like if you take that song from my sig, 'quite these paintings are'. just the name of that song gives me shivers. why? for some reason i get this picture of this loney guy walking down a dark hallway in some sort of museam, and he is looking at the paintings, and walking by them. and if i keep imagining stuff, i can imagin him being depressed becuase those paintings were his work, yet no one cares for it, and thus they are silent


errmmm..i'm not making sense. but yeah, i just realised that i absolutly love their song 'angels of distress'. its even my myspace song. maybe i should stop playing that in my head, and start listening to it again!

@Soliloquy. No dude, it makes perfect sense!

I think 'Quite These Paintings Are' is one of the best songtitels every, simply because it's so mystique.. it is like a small clue to a big secret, which we will never find..

They did the same thing for me. Even if the original song was more fast paced than their others. I discovered them thanks to MS radio where i heard Night's Dew. Then many months passed before i could actually find their works. And yea, i'm still very much interested in them!

Yeah, same here. I have known the name of this band for long because I'm a fan of Pasi Koskinen, but I never listened to Shape of Despair until recently. Fell in love with the album "Illusion's Play" almost instantly. I gotta get more by them soon. Wonderful stuff and shows a new side (for me) of Pasi's vocal skills.

ack! stupid stupid canada! so i went to the store the other day, just to order myself 'angel of distress'. it turns out that that is the only cd that is out of print and discontinued! arg! and i have been searching for shape of despair's songs for a while. i mean, the first time i heard of them, it was when metalstorm had its radio up and running(i think its still on, but its not on the forum anymore...so what fun is that). and that was some months ago.

anywho, is anyone willing to send me all the songs from angel of distress? i dont need that stuff online where you can download the entire album from some link. those things always took too long, and they never worked on my computer. like send in the songs through msn or soemthing?

thanks

This band is one of those bands I just can't appreciate... I've heard several songs by them and they're so damn monotonous.

This is a very brilliant band, one of the darkest atmospheres I've ever heard. Maybe it's in the melodic forum because it's doom taken to a clearly slower form.

Shape of Despair are for sure one of the best funeral doom metal bands of the period...Every realease they made was so unique and carried such emotions and really drowned the listener into despair...My favourite album is for sure"Angel Of Distress"i simply love all songs and find them momentus for this genre...I noticed that some have mentioned some grammatical errors at their lyrics...It really doesnt matter,you can understand what they mean through them and simply doesnt make them a lesser good band

I find Shape of Despair's music so depressing that I had to move away from it. I mean, they are great but I'm too sensitive and weak because it gets to me, and its just music.

I lol'd... I mean, sorry... I don't mean that you're weak or that kind of stuff.. I just found interesting that you really feel the music.

I'm also very sensitive in the music that I hear... but not on that level that I beging to cry or something.
Poor you ...
But since I'm a masochist... I listen to that kind of music so much as it's possible.

This proves that Shape Of Despair... is indeed a hell of doom metal.

I don't get to the point where I cry, I usually never cry, but I get really really sad. And I cant be on that space anymore.

I had a time when I would listen to Shape of Despair everyday.

I don't think that any other band had that affect on me.

Now that I read your posts... I really want the discography of SfD... They were fucking cheap... the three cds for only 25 euro!!! O.O

And the s/t song from Angels of Distress... was the first song that I heard from the band... and I really feld depressed. Awesome stuff.

I recommend their albums. And 25 euros for 3 cds is very cheap indeed.

I wish they did Iron Maiden 5 cds for 25 eheh.
