Descend into Despair released “Opium”

Descend into Despair funeral doom metal band hailing from Romania released “Opium” on May 31, 2020, under the label Funere.

“Opium - our upcoming album - is well under way, and we are ready to reveal the cover art. Opium's conceptual driving force is, we believe, fully grasped within this image, blurring the lines between painting and photography. Twisting classical beauty into modern obsession, weaving harmony of proportion into the disharmony of meaning that soaks through the fabric of existence, our Venus rises forth from horror and remembrance, drained by her rebirth, as murky as the sea that bore her.”
