Israeli-based Gothic Doom Metal band INNER MISSING is back with a new single release: Hiraeth. It’s been one and a half years since their latest full-length album Dead Language was released. The album was released on the worst possible time, just one day after Russia cowardly invaded Ukraine. The band located then in St. Petersburg but they strictly condemned the invasion and instantly decided to flee the country and their dictatorship.
“Hiraeth is an untranslatable Welsh word which is used to describe a very personal and specific mixture of homesickness, nostalgia and wistfulness. Like any other complex emotion, it is ineffable, but those who have already experienced it, will easily catch its glimpse in the eyes of the others because it is universal as well. For more than a year it seemed unthinkable for me to create anything, and then this song was composed, written and recorded in a matter of days and, paradoxically, it does not only depict the irreversible loss of my home and many things that were dear to me, but also confirms verity of the statement: no matter how rotten and dominated by philistine cowardice and dictatorial madness the world is, art, like a sprout, will eventually make its way through the layers of mud, into the light.”
