Ode to Loneliness and Sorrow

Digital Download



"A burning pyre made of yellowing post cards and forgotten memories, standing beside it while witnessing how negative emotions dissipated as the wind swept the ashes away --- the ultimate indulging of loneliness in the black box you created for yourself. A poetry of depressive romance: this is how one would describe the music of Kintsukuroi."

Based in Italy, Solitude Project used to be a solid dbm project. The duo changed their name into Kintsukuroi (金繕い/Golden Repair) in 2020 and have released an ep consisted of two songs that best exemplified their own musical aesthetic of post black metal's melancholy nature. In collaboration with Pest Productions, Kintsukuroi will release this ep and gave it a new title: Ode to Loneliness and Sorrow, an ep consisted of those two songs originally included in the previous ep, plus 1 new song and 4 songs brilliantly covering some major acts in post black metal and neofolk. Those covers, together with those two songs written by Kintsukuroi themselves, clearly demonstrate the project's potential: as flooding riffs and melodies of sorrow intertwining with the bleak and dreamlike ambient soundscape created by synths and keyboards, the razor-sharp deep howls bring the listeners into the inner world of
Kinsukuroi: a great mixture of depressive rock and post black metal, a world of suicidal beauty.
