Doomed– Our Ruin Silhouettes
Doomed is the best band to come from Germany playing Doom/Death Metal since the likes of Worship and Ophis. The music is extremely intense, melancholic and yet somewhat dreamy. It’s like the musical expression of the memoirs of a man having seen the dark underbelly of life and relations. ‘Our Ruin Silhouettes‘ is about the piercing and haunting emotions presented in a grandiose manner. Released on Solitude Productions, it’s certainly an interesting release.
This 7 track release has a very intense dark vibe from the first song itself. The album on a whole is indeed very intensely melancholic, and the lyrics show the depth of darkness that the human soul can reach. The sound of the album is just the audible reflection of the lyrical intensity of the album. Them feels man, them feels. Damn. I absolutely love how the band has managed to capture the darkness of the soul so beautifully in their music. Death, desolation, despair, it’s all there. Top notch stuff, this album.
Amazing stuff, doomed has a winner on their hands right there. Highly recommend you check them out if you haven’t already.
