All Shape of Despair items
SHAPE OF DESPAIR were founded by Jarno Salomaa and Tomi Ullgren after the demise of their previous death metal band in 1995. The two guitarists were aiming for a darker and more serene sound. Their debut album 'Shades of...' (2000) proved an instant success, garnering much praise from critics and fans alike. The quickly following 'Angels of Distress' (2001) is still regarded as a milestone of doom metal. Having added the corrosive and grinding vocals of Henri Koivula, which contrast perfectly with the aerial female voice of Natalie Koskinen, SHAPE OF DESPAIR returned to reclaim the throne of funeral doom with 'Monotony Fields'. Now they take you back to the time of their origins.
With their latest album 'Monotony Fields', SHAPE OF DESPAIR demonstrated that doom from Finland not only was far from getting stuck in a dead end, but was actually as beautiful, sorrowful, and majestic as it could ever get.
