"Very few debut records have this clearness of vision and a sound this thick and relentless."
- Decibel Magazine
Resilience & Despair is the debut double LP by Los Angeles, CA based atmospheric funeral doom quintet QAALM.
"An utterly masterful record that draws from the best of doom metal and post-rock. 9/10"
- Ghost Cult Mag
"Their songs will engulf your heart while pointing your brain cells to another reality"
- Cvlt Nation
Despite featuring current/former members of notable metal bands Act of Defiance, Harassor, and Seven Sisters of Sleep, no musical comparison can be made to QAALM, who have forged a sound unlike any of the member’s previous efforts.
Combining the crushing heaviness of sludge, the melancholic harmonies of funeral doom, with the atmosphere and intensity of black metal, QAALM have created a gloomy, depressive, and unique interpretation of the doom metal genre.
