Funeralium are a band from France that plays funeral doom metal with a touch of depressive black metal and this is a review of their double 2017 album "of Throes And Blight" which was released by Weird Truth Productions.
A very heavy doom metal sound starts off the album along with some dark sounding melodies and after awhile deep death metal growls start to make their presence known while high pitched black metal screams are also used at times and they also give the music more of a depressive edge.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length and acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with a brief use of whispers and spoken word parts while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up briefly a small amount of blast beats can be heard ad when guitar leads are finally utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion.
Funeralium plays a style of funeral doom metal that is mostly slow and melancholic sounding while also adding in touches of doom/death and depressive black metal to create a recording that really stands out, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover sickness and depression themes.
In my opinion Funeralium are a very great sounding funeral doom metal band with a touch of dsbm and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Slowly We Crawl Towards Crumbs" and "Vermin". 8 out of 10/
