𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Combination of slow tempo, downturned (crushing) riffs & chord changes, with melancholic and catchy rhythms & harmonizations, with deep ravaging pickings of the bass
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Slow - deep low, harsh vocals [Timo, the way he growls, sounds like he rhymes he vocals chords]
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Slow tempo rhythm beats, fill the deepest of hate and despair.
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Sailing into the darkness of over forty-eight minutes of ten breathtakingly significant experience of death/doom masterpiece, that as a tint of atmosphere & funeral doom.
After receiving the music of Infirmum, just playing the few minutes of track one, I was more than impressed; I was breathtaking/ear-struck, how beautiful & dark the whole the album is, from the deep melodic riffs and Timo singing style, deep [crushing] haunting sound, music arrangements (tempo/mood changes within the songs) and musicianship.
Each song as their own [dark/harsh] appealing characteristic of doom flavoured death metal, and for me, this full-length brings back the traditional death/doom sound of the 90s.
For me, this is a full-length, as that moment of just dimming the lights, pouring a glass of the darkest wine, and sail away with the music.
Infirmum is a musical resurrection by Finnish metal artist Timo Solonen who was active in the metal scene in the 1990s. The upcoming album "Walls Of Sorrow" is created in collaboration with session members on bass guitar and drums.

A Sorrow & shadow
of dark, melancholic Death doom
𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The album cover doesn't speak doom/death doom, but gives the expression of epic heavy/death metal, giving the appearance of a mage dragging/taking the listener into a dark epic voyage/journey.
