Hello. No. Not a good day. Not a good day at all. New Dispirit tape available means must listen. Listen means must have not listened. Day turns to night. Light into devouring darkness. Life rots away, soul disintegrates… Nightmares come to life. Listening to Dispirit’s music is like dying, like being drained of all life. Like succumbing to to most immeasurable misery ever to endure. The Bay Area masters of dismal darkness have brought us another manifestation of their monumentally unsettling craft in the form of Separation, a new, third, self-released demo tape of lo-fi, mummified, slithering, plague-ridden and absolutely immense black doom. Two songs clocking in at twenty and fifteen minutes respectively that are a slow crawl. An atrocious, inexorable descent into nightmarish aural hell. It is surreal how the continued lack of a “real,” not-home recorded, album can make you drool over and worship such a lo-fi and emaciated sound recording – but the truth is, even in it’s skeletal and crumbling sound quality, within the buzzing and chaotic hiss of Separation you can hear Dispirit’s sonic immensity and their absolutely towering superiority and musicianship. We are left in complete awe and amazement to contemplate the sheer darkness and force of this band coming to you though the most eroded, frail and unappealing sound quality ever; and maybe, just maybe, that is what makes Dispirit so special. Behold, through the fog, one of the greatest black/doom bands to ever set foot on US soil.
