Guest review by
There are few bands around as truly bleak as Funeral and although many others may try their hand at doom metal, too often it sounds too much like doom for doom's sake. This is not the case with this band. In their early material they helped define the Funeral Doom genre, which retained many of the trademarks of extreme metal. They subjected us to some of the most painful vocals, slow gloomy riffs and life-weary songs, which seemed to drag on endlessly, but in this offering they provide a far more calculated, sober and mature account of themselves than before and yet it is as dark and bleak as anything preceding it.
