The Leaving is the solo project of Frederyk Rotter of the noise-doom band Zatokrev, with accompaniment from three others. It's slow paced and, well, utterly depressing, making even Winfred E. Eye seem like chirpy surf music. Frederyk's vocals are soft, with occasional backing being added; a highlight is the cello which crops up periodically. If you make it through all 49 minutes you are a stronger person than I. The songs even get longer as you near the end just to up the ante on this challenge.
