Classic revisited



Random band


The band plays a heavy mixture of doom/death and funeral doom. Actually it's quite hard to determine in which category the band stands the firmest, as the sound...

Funeralium : Funeralium



The name of their demo was clear: 'Ultra Sick Doom' is the best description that can be made of Funeralium's music. And if you thought that the demo was already a landmark in the vein of filthy sick Funeral doom, then know that the album goes even deeper.

It is pretty difficult to explain it more than that: this album is madness incarnated. Madness, and loathing. Loathing for everything. This is the kind of album a bunch of asylum freaks could record. In fact, i’m pretty sure it was the case. The vocals of Marquis are the sickest you can find this side of 'Dictus Te Necare'. The riffs are cold, and slow, and grey as a cement ground. This album is reeking of moisture and humidity. This is putrid music, without hope, without reason. This is excruciating pain and anguish expressed through notes. Agonizing, horrifying and atrociously despered. Utterly sad and nerve-shredding. Sonic torure in its darkest and purest form.

This is the album that will have all the so-called Depressive Black Metal bands cower in fear and go slit their wrists with a rusty razor blade. Even the most die-hard of Extreme Doomsters will have a hard-time to manage to grasp the full extant of such a devastating musical release. It break many boundaries, it create a new genre, a new way to express dark feelings. You thought that Wormphlegm were the most Extreme Doom band in the World? You were damn wrong... Funeralium, ot the decay of civilizations put into musical language. Face it, and despair.
