From Season Of Mist:

Finnish funeral doom icons Shape Of Despair are now releasing the third track from their upcoming record »Return To The Void«. The new album will be released via Season of Mist on February 25, 2022.

Listen to »Forfeit« at the official Season Of Mist Youtube Channel.

Shape Of Despair return from the wintry Nordic gloom on their new album, »Return To The Void«. Between the success of the majestically downtrodden »Monotony Fields« (2015) and today, the members of Shape Of Despair have been composing (glacially) and otherwise ensconced writing/performing with their other projects like Finntroll, Impaled Nazarene, Throes Of Dawn, and Counting Hours. The Finns have never been or found the need to be prolific, however. The race into the cold darkness is a contemplatively unhurried task. »Return To The Void« is musically and thematically that same journey, one of perpetual solitude and aching hopelessness, driven straight into the heart of frigid twilight. As ever, this is cheerless music for sunless days.
