CLOUDS was born out of grief and loss, a story like so many others of this kind. However, the music is what remains of this whole process of having to lose the ones we love. The music speaks of it; it carries the soul to another world where sadness, grief, and pain are no more.
CLOUDS was created by Daniel Neagoe in 2012, and the following year saw the birth of its first album, Doliu (Romanian for “Mourning”). The album was amazingly received by both media and the public and saw the start of the band’s ascension.
In the years to come, CLOUDS released several albums and made its first live appearances, gathering members from Shape Of Despair, Funeral, and Pantheist and participating in the world’s most dedicated festivals, both indoor and outdoor, such as Doom Over London, Doom Over Kiev, Dutch Doom Days, Doom Over Bucharest, Gothoom, Doom Over Vienna, and headlining shows in special locations, such as the Amuz Cathedral and Valkenburg cave.
In early 2021, CLOUDS partnered with PERSONAL RECORDS to have their back catalog properly reissued, as every other CD released to this day had only been self-released by the band and in limited quantities (and thus went for insane collector’s prices). First came the pair of Dor (2018) and Doliu (2014), and then followed the pair of Destin (2017) and Departe (2016). Now arrives the release of CLOUDS’ brand-new sixth album, Despărțire (Romanian for “Separation”), which PERSONAL will release with an exclusive bonus track. Further consolidating CLOUD’s position as the leading atmospheric funeral doom-death band, Despărțire is arguably their most heartfelt album yet, continuing their legacy where they left off with last year’s Durere. What’s more, Despărțire features guest appearances by My Dying Bride’s Aaron Stainthorpe on “In Both Our Worlds The Pain is Real” and Antimatter’s Mick Moss on “This Heart, A Coffin.”
As longtime fans of the band, PERSONAL RECORDS is honored to be working again with CLOUDS for this special release of Despărțire.
