Amoeba Review

05/24/2017

Loss are one of those bands that are perfectly named. The monosyllabic simplicity of the word and all it conveys is matched by the absolutely crushing despair unleashed by the group onto whatever hapless, cheerful soul might chance upon them. Loosely categorized as Funeral Doom, Horizonless goes far beyond simple genre signifiers such as melancholy riffs being played at glacial paces. The band does everything possible to conjure the bleakest, gloomiest, and most downright heavy sounds possible. Every cymbal crash hits with the power of a ten ton sledgehammer. The bass rumbles like an ancient leviathan so much so that it probably shows up on Sonar. Raspy black metal shrieks are alternated with deep guttural death metal growls over the clamor of the guitars, while quieter passages incorporate whispered and even spoken-word moments, all before being blasted into nothingness by the inevitable sonic oblivion at hand. Though these songs approach an average running time of 9 minutes, they deftly avoid repetition; every song is structured as a multipart suite, constantly contrasting different verses and movements but never locking into anything approaching predictable. The mood, on the other hand, consistently sits somewhere between somber and suicidal. Your perfect winter listening for the upcoming summer.
