Atmospheric doom misanthropes, CLOUDS, are pleased to join forces with Domestic Genocide Records for the release of their forthcoming debut album, Doliu.
A multi-national project featuring members of Shape Of Despair, Eye Of Solitude, Panthiest, Officium Triste, Imper Luminis and Hamferd, CLOUDS orchestrate solemn odes of pain and sorrow dedicated to departed souls. Forged following the passing of someone close and dear, to hear CLOUDS is to lose yourself in a grievous journey through paths of desolation, anguish and despair.
Said the band in a collective statement: “We are extremely happy to have found a label which shares our passion and ideology. That is something hard to find nowadays. Together with Domestic Genocide we will bring you sorrow.”
Adds the Domestic Genocide collective: “There is a comfort in the bitterness that surrounds the sound, the lyrics, the interpretation and the passion with which the songs have been written. And with the help of Domestic Genocide Records, CLOUDS will be bringing sorrow; the music will at once touch and torture.”
Doliu will be released via Domestic Genocide in the New Year. Portions of the album’s proceeds will be donated to Sponsorachild.org. Further info, including street date and teaser tracks to be announced in the coming weeks.
Somewhere in the wretched void called sin, a torturous claim on life, an imminent determination takes its reign on the very edges of the naked soul. Stripped of dreams and thoughts and virtue; stripped of joy and greed and lust. A powerless light now fades in dust, of a martyrized wish which now drowns in remorse, sorrow and regret; regret and nothingness which now surrender and bow before pitiful hope.
