DESPOND STILL IN A FUNERAL SLEEP...
seems like 2006 will not be an active year for DESPOND
(2005 had already been very calm)
The plans (new album & history compilation) are still in my head, but I don't feel like working
on them right now... I need to finish my other projects before working back on DESPOND.

NNEWS ABOUT THE 2CD PROJECT
As you may know, I am currently working on a special release for the 10 Year Anniversary of DESPOND
will be a 2CD release including the new studio album (untitled yet) and a
history compilation album
(to be entitled "Decade of Mourning")
The tracklisting of "Decade of Mourning" is already completed, and I will post more details here
in the coming weeks. Regarding the new studio album, I am working on it, be sure it will sound
like true and pure extreme doom/death metal, maybe more experimental and ambient than the
"Supreme Funeral Oration" debut album.

OCTOBER 8TH, 2004
As you may know, DESPOND is currently on stand by.
is being quite a busy year for me, as I've been involved in
side projects such as MONOLITHE, NYDVIND and NUNKTHUL.
So, DESPOND has been put to a temporary silence this year...
there is this SKEPTICISM cover which is still in process...
To be released some day by Foreshadow Productions.
hot information is the following :
I have decided to enable every metalhead to put an ear on the
long time sold out debut demo tape of DESPOND, entitled
"As my Soul reaches Infinity". Originally released in 1995, this
demo shows the very first musical shapes of DESPOND.
this day, you can download the complete version of this
demo, including classic songs such as "Tears of a sad Spirit"
and "Never-ending Night".
will be back in 2005 for the 10 year anniversary.
In the meantime, enjoy our first demo and Doom your Life.
