With a sensible groundwork that undertakes poetic guitar lines throughout worlds of dream, passion and imperial consciousness, their style, despite its coalescence of charming incandescence profoundly inserted in very simple, low key production values, insinuates itself in a tempestuously calm and serene planet of contemplative completeness, that evolves continuously in a sound that is peaceful enough to make the listener’s thoughts to be majestically guided to another galaxy, to travel intensely to a distant palace in another existence, where all levels of perception are perfected, far beyond ours. In the purity of an elevating transcendence, Departure easily has the power to take the listener throughout a marvelous journey in space and time, through unknown dimensions, where all our feelings are potentially intensified in a sensorial transcendence impossible to measure in a simple scale of wonder.
With a very intense sound that feels static as well as deeply evolved at the same time, Departure certainly can be classified, without misconception, as very innovative, audacious, genuine and creative BM album, that takes its inspiration from the traditional stream of the genre, elevating its patterns to more organic and dream-like melodic flavors, that were taken from places where no other band has been before.
Departure evidently has everything to be considered a masterpiece. A very good and imaginative work, that excels in sonorous symmetry, Useless is a promising black metal act, that has talent, consistency and a formidable degree of artistry, whose solid goals can lead them to be recognized as the next greatest BM act in the contemporaneous underground scene.
