Evoken – Hypnagogia (Profound Lore)

Evoken – Hypnagogia (Profound Lore)

Apparently Evoken state that they wanted “to present the listener with an emotionally exhausting record” and they have certainly done that, I have fallen asleep several times listening to this. That’s not a criticism in the slightest, I just find funeral doom takes me to.. Read More
Vouna – ST (Artemisia Records)

Vouna – ST (Artemisia Records)

Apparently mugwort, wormwood and sagebrush all belong to the Asteraceae genus of plants scientifically known as Artemisia. It’s also the name of new label founded by Wolves In The Throne Room so all ecologically sound and biodegradable I am sure. Vouna have been plucked from.. Read More
Woebegone Obscured - The Forestroamer (Aesthetic Death)

Woebegone Obscured – The Forestroamer (Aesthetic Death)

It’s been a little while since Danish funeral doomsters Woebegone Obscured last skulked onto my music system, with 2014’s dramatic ‘Deathscape MMXIV’. Apparently, there’s been a self-titled EP released in the interim, but sorry lads, I missed that one. ‘The Forestroamer’ is the new full-length.. Read More
Pantheist – Seeking Infinity (Melancholic Realm Productions)

Pantheist – Seeking Infinity (Melancholic Realm Productions)

It’s not just the music that can be slow and laborious as far as funeral doom is concerned but also the time waiting patiently for it to arrive. There’s no DIY grindcore approach here, one take, a quick thrash and jobs a good un, here’s.. Read More
Ennui - End Of The Circle (Non Serviam Records)

Ennui – End Of The Circle (Non Serviam Records)

I remember my first experience with Funeral Doom Metal, along one of my many YouTube crusades I hit the wall of slow paced fury that is Ahab, it’s safe to say that my mind was blown. From here I have found a penchant for the.. Read More
Fading Bliss - Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

Fading Bliss – Journeys In Solitude (Malpermesita Records)

With titles like the above it would be a fairly safe bet that we would be in funeral doom territory with this Belgian group, and indeed that is the case. Four tracks and around forty five minutes: Ocean, Mountain, A Forest, Desert. A journey indeed... Read More
Interview - Bell Witch

Interview – Bell Witch

This interview is one of several which was originally done for a printed publication. Due to production issues it never made it to press, so is being published here along with several others over the coming week or so. ‘Mirror Reaper’ is a record that.. Read More
Adversvm – Aion Sitra Ahra (Iron Bonehead)

Adversvm – Aion Sitra Ahra (Iron Bonehead)

Even deep within its granite wells of abject sorrow and glorious heaviness, it’s still difficult to find much to surprise in the depths of funeral doom these days. Perhaps that’s because many of its proponents regard deviating from the true path of catatonic gloom to.. Read More
Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Eye Of Solitude / Marche Funèbre – Split (Hypnotic Dirge)

Two well respected bands in extreme doom circles go at it together for this split release, both with one track each. Due to the genre as you would expect that does not mean a shortage of material in any respect as the numbers weigh in.. Read More
Et Moriemur – Epigrammata (Transcending Obscurity)

Et Moriemur – Epigrammata (Transcending Obscurity)

Is it always enough to try and sound the same as everyone else, can riffs ever grow tiresome. I guess the answer lies in the ears of the listener, but certainly in my experience of reviewing for a number of years I can tell you.. Read More
Towards Atlantis Lights - Dust Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

Towards Atlantis Lights – Dust Of Aeons (Transcending Obscurity)

Towards Atlantis Lights brings together members of various bands including Pantheist and Void Of Silence, who have crafted an album utilising experiences based on historic events. However, be under no illusion, this is no mere retrospective tale in the style of Iron Maiden; dark emotion.. Read More
Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

Monads – IVIIV (Aesthetic Death)

A monad is the first, an originator or most simple building block from which everything else comes. All of which somehow nicely sums up the inescapable feeling when listening to this type of slow ‘n’ heavy metal – that this is the genre in its.. Read More
