Description

Funeral Doom

Slow, monotonous and trance-like Funeral Doom using a flute and violin. Somewhat like fellow countrymen Skepticism, but the music is more dreamy and trance-like. A great addition to the few bands that play Funeral Doom and highly recommended for fans of this style of music.

Misc

The demo 'Alone in the Mist' and the promo tape was recorded under the name Raven (the first name of the band), but it was not released. The band changed name to Shape of Despair in 1998, but 'The Eerie Sampler' (also containing the black and heavy metal bands Darkwoods My Betrothed, Gravferd and Wizzard) was also released under the first moniker since it's basically a re-release of some of the tracks from the demo.

In 2016 1000 copies of Alone in the Mist was released by Seasons of Mist label.

Band member Jarno Salomaa used to play in Rapture and nowadays he plays for The Mist and the Morning Dew.
