And just like that, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced, Officium Triste mark their 25th anniversary with a return that will undoubtedly cause the immediate revision of many a best of the year/decade lists.

It's been a long time, since I listened to such great death doom album. Very nostalgic and even uplifting at times. Could this be doom of the year?

Given it's the 13th of December, with little time left to dissuade me, in my earholes it certainly is.

Pretty good, nothing more. Great performances, but too many predictable melodies and generally mediocre songwriting. If this is the doom of the year, then it must've been a terrible year for doom.

I am not nor have I ever been a musician or a member of a one-man band, especially a band that has a name that starts with "D".

This is my first Officium Triste album, and they had my full attention from the first track. Now I can say they're my favorite death doom band.

Someone please tell me the lyrics of The Guilt.
I want to cry to it.

It's hard to look back now
Of what was real
The things we had
When all seemed fine
It's not on me
You crossed that line
I did my time...

Might actually be the best OT album. Either this, Mors Viri, or Reason

This is an extremely melodious album, slacks off a bit in the middle but ends with a mammoth track. Very enjoyable doom.

It is a good album, I like it.
Some 7.3 from me.
But indeed, just as Metren said, too many predictable melodies and generally mediocre songwriting, I couldnt have put it better.

Just placed my order for the transparent splatter LP. Really sleek design, even better music.
