With a moniker like Loss and album titles like 2004's Life Without Hope … Death Without Reason, it’s no surprise these local doomsayers wallow in anxiety and despair. Funeral doom, the kids call it. The band’s singular focus and unwavering devotion makes them very good at what they do, which is build mountains out of crushing depression. But even under all that weight, Loss is surprisingly agile. Sure, this is music designed to push air, but the guitar lines are fluid, and instead of pummeling, the drums beat out a march — a funeral march, of course. Naturally, the upcoming album is called Despond, and it’ll be available at the end of this month via underground metal standard-bearer Profound Lore Records. Nashville gets early dibs tonight when Loss plays a record release show with Pallbearer and Anhedonist.
