With quality releases from Swampbeast, Noctule, Hellish Form, and Oryx, Translation Loss Records is taking no breaks and continuously delivering the goods. Today, OUR PLACE OF WORSHIP IS SILENCE announce Disavowed, and Left Hopeless, which joins the label's 2021 fold. Disavowed, and Left Hopeless follows 2018's excellent With Inexorable Suffering and expands upon the band's esoteric nature. As aggressive as Disavowed, and Left Hopeless may seem, it's a lesson in compositional structure that explores the metaphysical conflicts of man, a theme that has been touched upon throughout the band's discography.


Vocalist/drummer Tim 'Xsithis' comments:


“This album can be seen as a conclusive end to the previous albums. At this point, man’s abandonment has culminated to an accretive cataclysm. The head of the snake is decapitated and we bask in the emptiness, like the last of its shedded skin. This age of disinformation has summoned a false conception of reality to which the slaves cling; the arrogant become the abandoned. Our plague has been submerged in the digital, infecting the matrix in a way not witnessed before. This creation is the continued rebellion against these offenses."
