Dictator – Dysangelist (Aesthetic Death)

Having recently explored the new, with the cracking debut album from Voz De Nenhum ‘Sublimation’ it is time to delve right back to the past of one of the musicians from it, Dictator. This is a one man project from… Continue Reading →

Il Vuoto – Vastness (Hypnotic Dirge)

It is time to enter “the void” courtesy of Italian composer Matteo Gruppi el maestro behind everything we hear on Il Vuoto’s second full length album following on from ‘Weakness’ in 2015. We are informed that ‘Vastness is a painting… Continue Reading →

Maestus – Deliquesce (Code 666)

I’m often at a loss for words to describe funereal doom. “Doomy and funereal”.  There, review done. Maestus, fittingly named from the Latin word for gloomy or mournful, formed in 2013 as a two piece, later taking on additional musicians… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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…. Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →

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… Continue Reading →
