Funebrarum/Beneath The Columns Of Abonded Gods/Necroharmonic Records/2001 CD Review

Funebrarum are band from New Jersey that consists of members from Evoken and Abazarogoth that play a style that I would describe as doom/death with a blackened touch and this is a review of their 2001 album "Beneath The Colums Of Abonded Gods" which was released by Necroharmonic Records.

Drums mix slow and midpaced beats with fast playing and some brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a dark tone that follows the riffs coming out of the guitars and at the end of the cd there is a short keyboard effect.

Rhythm guitars utilize a deep tuning and there is a mixture of slow slow doom/death metal riffs that are very heavy with some fast riffs that are mostly death metal influenced but have a black metal as well as grindcore edge to them, while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding guitar solos.

Vocals are mostly low pitched death metal growls with some high pitched screams, while the lyrics are very gory with themes about dying and graves with a necromantic touch that is also influenced by the writings as for the production on this recording which was recorded at Off Stage Studios during the months of October and November of 2001 sounds very dark and heavy which makes the music sound brutal.

In my opinion Funebrarum are a very good brutaql death/doom metal band and if you are a fan of that style as well as brutal death metal you should check this band out. RECOOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tombs Of Sleeping Darkness" "Adoration Of Abscesses Cadavers" and "Dormant Hallucination". RECOMMENDED BUY.
