Loss - Life Without Hope... Death Without Reason (2004)

Tennessee doom masters Loss are finally coming out with a full length album later this month. In honor of that I decided to review their independently released demo, "Life Without Hope... Death Without Reason." It's fucking awesome, particularly if you love doom/slow death metal. It's eerie, depressing, and beautiful, but is mostly recommended for doom fans. Please check it out, but don't blame me if you feel like killing yourself afterwards. I'm very excited for their new LP and have been listening to their back catalogue a lot to get myself ready for the long awaited and undoubtedly awesome full length.

Track list:
1. Coffin Nails (Intromancy)
2. Conceptual Funeralism Unto the Final Act (of Being)
3. Cut Up, Depressed, and Alone

If you like this demo, you can buy the reissued CD (by Deathgasm) here. It's fluffed up with a cover and a live track, which I think are mostly unnecessary but still worth a listen. And if this is your thing, definitely check out "Four Burials," which is a split with Otesanek, Orthodox, and Mournful Congregation. The entire thing is amazing, but I believe the record is totally out of print. It's certainly one of the most amazing doom splits out there.
