Russian gothic doom metal band Inner Missing released their ninth studio album Dead Language.
The band also released an epic music video from the title track.
The music video is made in collaboration with extremely talented sand artist Tatyana Pertovskaya.
Sigmund comments:
“No one would argue that poetry is a dead language today and music is going to share its fate sooner or later. This album is an allegorical requiem to all forms of art that are already gone and to all forms of art that will be gone in the future.”

The band was formed in the spring of 2008.
In that time it was called Odium and appeared to be a studio project, consisting of 2 members:
Sigmund (vocals,guitars,bass) and Cosmic Drone (keyboards).
They recorded demo “Decay”, that included 3 songs, the demo has got lots of positive opinions and after that musicians were looked for, and after successful search in autumn 2008, the band was given its actual name.
The band’s debut concert was given on December 19th 2008 and not long after that the first Inner Missing EP “All the lifeless” was recorded.
The EP was released by Russian independent label Satanarsa Records in March, 2009.
After that the band participated in several local festivals in St. Petersburg and Moscow and shared the stage with such bands as Ordog and Throes Of Dawn.
In summer of 2009 Inner Missing participated in Metal Crowd Festival (Rechsitsa, Belarus) – it was the first show abroad.
In autumn 2009 the band participated in the most famous doom metal festival in Russia – Shadow Doom Fest for the first time.
After that, Inner Missing recorded its first full-length album ‘’The Age Of Silence”.
In spring 2010 Inner Missing performs as an opening act for Katatonia in St.Petersburg and right after that gives concerts in such cities as Kazan and Vologda.
In 2011 “Escapism” is released by the Russian label Darknagar Records, also in 2011 the band shares the stage with Saturnus in Minsk, Belarus.
In 2012 Inner Missing shares the stage with My Dying Bride in St.Petersburg and takes part in some local festivals.
The third album, “Perjury”, was recorded in 2013.
Like all previous albums, it was released by Darknagar Records and it has got high marks in many webzines.
Then, during 2013 the band undergoes a lot of line-up troubles and finally records “Defeat” as a duo (Sigmund – voice and guitars and Melaer – bass and keyboards).
This album demonstrated that the band’s style has turned to atmospheric\depressive rock and since 2013 the band exists as a duo (although session musicians are recruited for studio work and live shows).
In 2014 Inner Missing supports Saturnus during their Russian shows and then takes a short break during which both band members play in a progressive rock\metal band Karma Rassa.
After the hiatus “The Sentinel And The Murderer” was recorded in cooperation with well-known Ukrainian sound producer Max Morton (he also recorded bass for this album).
Supporting this album, Inner Missing performs live shows in Ukraine (at Kiev Kills Festival), Egypt (at Metal Blast Festival), Mongolia (at Noise Metal Fest) and Romania (at Rock’n’Iasi festival) in 2016.
In the years 2017-2018 the band does not give many shows (with the exception for an exclusive gig in Istanbul) and concentrates on the studio work mostly which results in “The Ineffable” and “Ghostwriter”, the 6th and the 7th studio albums.
In 2019 Inner Missing participates in The Room Of Doom Festival (Athens, Greece), Mullae Metal City (Seoul, South Korea), Shadow Doom Festival (Moscow, Russia) and gives a lot of local shows in Russia and Belarus.
2020 turned out to be a productive year for the band as well – 8th album Deluge was recorded and released and after its release the band gives a lot of shows in Russia and Belarus.

Russian gothic/doom metal band
released single
‘The Quest’

Russian gothic doom metal band Inner Missing released their first single ‘The Quest’ from the upcoming ninth studio album ‘Dead Language’, which is set to be released on February 25th 2022 via Inverse Records.
Sigmund comments:
“Aleister Crowley is one of the most iconic figures in Gothic culture and definitely the most misunderstood one ever. This is an attempt to rethink his poetry and reimagine his myth – no more, no less.”
