Funeral Tears are a solo project from Russia that plays funeral doom metal and this is a review of his 2017 album "Beyond the Horizon" which will be released in April as a joint effort between Satanath Records and Cimmerian Shade Recordings.
Ambient style synths start off the album along with some clean playing and they also mix in with the more heavy and melodic funeral doom metal style and after awhile deep death metal growls start to make their presence known on the recording along with some black metal screams also being added into some parts of the music.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very depressive yet melodic fashion and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and acoustic guitars can also be heard at times and spoken word parts are also used briefly and the music also alternates between both clean and heavy parts quite a bit throughout the recording always sticking to a very slow musical direction and there is also a brief use of post metal elements.
Funeral Tears plays a style of funeral doom metal that is very atmospheric while also adding in a touch of black and post metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, spiritual balance and inner peace themes.
In my opinion Funeral Tears are a very great sounding funeral doom metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Breathe" and "Beyond the Horizon'. 8 out of 10.
