Australia might not have so many doom metal bands, but has given birth to the almighty disEMBOWELMENT and has some really well-known bands like the atmospheric doom metal band Avrigus, the theatric gothic/doom metal act Virgin Black and the cult funeral doom metal beast Mournful Congregation.

During 2005 Mournful Congregation managed to return with a new release (which in fact consists of tracks composed during the 1994-2004 era), the almighty 4-track full-length album "The Monad Of Creation", but hey, don't let the number of the songs full you, it's funeral doom we're talking about, so I guess you got the secret message that the album will accompany you for a bit more than an hour with its lurking melodies. What? Did I just say melodies? Oh yes, I said it and it's true, Mournful Congregation have a melodious approach on funeral doom. No, this doesn't mean that they are a sold out band, they are slower than the process of lung cancer, unearthly and powerful when they need to, but a sense of melody on the guitar work is always present to add a beautiful tone in the overall mourning atmosphere.

Is Funeral Doom good ?
It mostly depends on the mood you're in right now. I personally don't listen to this kind of metal as I don't want another Genesis (70's Progressive Rock band) to bore me in 21st century.

Are you implying that funeral doom bands create music similar to Genesis or it was just meant to show that both Genesis and funeral doom bore you?

Both bore me, but I don't really dislike them. To be more accurate both are replaceable easily.

Aha fair enough.
I also don't listen to funeral doom that much these days as the style is highly predictable.

All of them at some point (though barely made it through the new one zzzzzz). I've rarely come back to them in a decade or so unlike Esoteric, who are on a different level altogether.

Wrong again, they have different approaches but at the end of the day, both bands manage to touch my soul.
