Landon Where to begin? There is so much to be loved on this album. The phenomenal mix brings each instrument into the forefront. The guitars and bass work together in concord, neither overpowering the other. The drums are clear and articulate, providing the proper backbone to these weary dirges. The dichotomy between the deep growls and the ethereal clean vocals is most impressive. This album is truly a masterpiece within the funeral doom genre.

Ellen Partnoy Massive and epic. Gloomy, melancholic...everything doom metal should be. Favorite track: Descending Inner Night.

Joe Wipp Massive and melancholic with great gothic influences. For being a twenty year old extreme doom metal band they still sound as fresh and inspired as their classic material from over a decade ago. Favorite track: Descending Inner Night.

The renowned Finnish funeral doom-bringers SHAPE OF DESPAIR make their long-awaited return with their first new album in over 10 years, 'Monotony Fields'. Oppressively heavy, imposing, and always emotionally wrenching, 'Monotony Fields' is an ominous 70+ minute tour de force from one of the genre's true leaders. With eight new songs that enshroud everything in their path, 'Monotony Fields' proves the band is as vital as ever, carrying the torch for the second wave of Finnish doom.
