|CLOUDS DEPARTE Limited Gatefold Vinyl 2LP Set
Clouds was formed in 2014 as a solo project by Daniel Neagoe (Shape Of Despair, Eye Of Solitude) preceded by the loss of a close family member which triggered the band's ideology and approach.
The band was joined by Jarno Salomaa (Shape of Despair), Mark Antoniades (Eye Of Solitude), Deha (Imber Luminis), Kostas Panagiotou (Pantheist) plus Pim Blankenstein (Officium Triste) and Jon Aldara (Barren Earth) on vocals.
There is nothing planned in the whole happening,no pre-agreed vision upon the music nor any complicated assemblies of the instruments. Clouds is just music made of feelings that the loss of a loved person would cause.
In early 2017 Departe, the second full length has seen then same success as its predecessor Doliu, from 2014, including also guest musicians like Shaun MacGowan (My Dying Bride) and Natalie Koskinen (Shape Of Despair).
Daniel Neagoe speaks about Departe “There is something special in the simplicity of these songs, a truth and an honesty that I don't really know how to describe and no one will ever understand what I feel when I'm writing for this project.
There is a certain honesty in letting loose those feelings. It's cathartic and true”.
