“How much does the soul weigh? If it was measured by Lisbon doom outfit LÖBO, it would weigh a ton, according to their atmospheric downtempo masterpiece Älma, which is proof that heaviness, melody, and electronic elements can co-exist and can create aural landscapes capable of blackening your soul, yet lead you into the light at the end of the tunnel. Like the dawn after a death, there is an elegiac quality to Älma that simply pulls at the heartstrings while it simultaneously drowns you in leaden, crushing sound. It’s these contrasts that put LÖBO in general and Älma in particular in a league poignantly removed from conventional “doom”.
For the members of Löbo, Älma has proved to be a highly influential piece of work which paved the way for several new acts and countless side-projects. Their history should not end here, and so LÖBO are regrouping and working once again to release a new piece of music that marks a new journey for all who have been missing their pulse live.”
