Funeral Chant.jpgThis self-titled effort by the US black/death metal horde Funeral Chant is a raw, barbaric, and unsettling affair, but it possesses depth and texture, much more so than many other similar bands and artists out there who opt for an old-school sound and attitude.

The great thing about Funeral Chant is that they write brilliant songs. Explosive yet slimy riffs, hellish vocals, pounding drums, and a deeply disturbing atmosphere permeate this cursed thing, so if that sounds appealing to your tiny mind then there is simply no way around this 6-track opus. The warm, murky, and organic production adds another layer of darkness to the proceedings and at times it feels like one is being sucked into a nightmarish world from which there is no escape. This is utterly morbid and reckless black/death metal of the vilest order.

Sure, there is nothing new to what these ugly sickos do, but the songs are so engaging and captivating that stuff such as innovation simply does not matter. Funeral Chant may harken back to the days of old, but this is fucking timeless stuff and I dare say that this will still sound as current and sharp as a razor ten years from now as it does today. All you black/death fanatics ought to head on over to the Duplicate Records website and order a copy of this wicked slab of horror now. This shit is both catchy and disgusting. On top of that, it will fucking pulverize you!
