Abyssmal Sorrow - Lament (2008)

Hazy, reverb-drenched, crestfallen blackened funeral doom. I recently scored a job at a record store, and the highlight of my run so far came today when a soft-spoken, mustachioed old guy -- probably 65 or so -- asked whether or not we had any Abyssmal Sorrow, discussed his love for French black metal, then bought a bunch of black metal CDs, instructing me to put them in a bag so that he could hide them from his wife.

Track listing:
1. Bound in Lifeless Affliction
2. Requiem for the Dying Moon
3. Cavernous Sorrow and Worthlessness
4. Echoes Through the Fields of Death
5. Austere Lament Part One
6. Austere Lament Part Two

In misery there can be comfort

For more misery, try:

Elysian Blaze -
Blood Geometry (2012)
Mistress of the Dead - I Know Her
Face from the Tombstone (2006)


  1. That guy could almost be me in 20 years, except that I don't hide the black metal from the wife. She knows it's there, just doesn't want to hear it.
