Italian doom metal outfit Shores Of Null is gearing up for the release of the band's highly anticipated new album "The Loss of Beauty", which will be coming out on March 24th via Spikerot Records. "The Loss of Beauty" is Shores Of Null’s fourth album and follows the acclaimed "Beyond The Shores (On Death And Dying)", unanimously considered by fans and critics as one of the doom metal gems of recent years. Both albums were recorded between 2019 and early 2020, and although "The Loss of Beauty" was initially conceived as the band’s third album, "Beyond The Shores" took its place as it better reflected the doom and gloom sentiment of the "annus horribilis" 2020.
Across 11 tracks (plus two bonus tracks), Shores Of Null once again submerges listeners with tempestuous and turbulent riffs. The band continues to hone its sound and take its melancholic dark metal to new heights by mastering an assorted palette of genres with inbred poignancy. The lyrics celebrate beauty in imperfection and transience and are meant to be an invitation to seek beauty in little things, especially those unexpected and ephemeral.
After the previously released first single "Nothing Left To Burn", the band follows up today with a brand new music video for "The Last Flower", directed by Sanda Movies.
Vocalist Davide Straccione on "The Last Flower":
"This song has, in my opinion, one of the best choruses of the album, and I also feel very connected to the lyrics. I pictured a future where everything is dying and there’s but a flower left alive in this world that must be saved at all costs, even with our own life if it means saving our future. It’s a metaphor that encloses the main theme in ‘The Loss Of Beauty’, which is preserving beauty no matter what. It is a reminder that everything is ephemeral."
