I thought that i will let this band go in the extreme sub-forum. As will all the other funeral doom bands' threads that i will ever be making. Funeral doom is just an even more extreme doom genre than death/doom, thus this thread being here.
I really love the band. Best funeral doom i've heard. And while i haven't heard all that much, i reall really enjoy the music. The song that got me into them was Night's Dew. It isn't exactly my favourite song, but it presents some awesome melodies. The thing i like about the band is the word "doom" seems to be written all over their songs.
All of the 3 CDs are awesome. I still can't pick a favourite, but In the Mist is an awesome song. So is Woundheir.
From Angels of Distress i atm most like Quiet These Paintings Are and ...To Live For My Death
From Illusion's Play i like Sleep Mirrored and Entwined in Misery.

The named songs aren't of course the only ones that i enjoy, but they were the first that came to my head. Anyways, that thing aside, the more important thing is that they have NO songs that i dislike! Picking favourites is hard, but picking bad songs is easy. I failed to do the latter. Some songs are more key-influenced, but it's done in a doomish way to present a whole new level of soundscape. I totally appreciate that.

it's been, what, five years since they released anything. anyone know what they are up to?


I don't know anything about it either. Two members are in Finntroll though so maybe those twoa re kinda bussy. But I don't think that would be a good excuse.

now that think of it, I want more material from this band

I like Shape of Despair quite a bit, 'Shape Of...' is a brilliant album.

That's the brand of funeral doom I quite dislike, to be honest. I can't stand this overly romantic and sentimental tone which is my own fault, I guess. But since my favorites from that the genre are Evoken and Wormphlegm my disdain for SoD isn't probably completely surprising.

While I like them specifically for that tone, I understand where you're coming from. It might sound odd, but if I listen to the music for what it is, I really like it. But when I listen to it as "funeral doom", I listen as kind of an elitist and shun it for being too accessible.

Shame Aftermath does those vinyl re-releases. I would have prefered Rusty Crowbar or Svart. Especially Svart since they always put a lot of effort into their vinyl releases.
