FUNERAL FORNICATION “The Lamentation” /Digipack CD/



The fifth full-length album by Canadian Atmospheric Depressive Black Metal band.
Five years after it’s last full-length, Canadian Black Metal solo project Funeral Fornication has released "The Lamentation", a shining example of how artists go through stylistic evolutions. It’s apparent that, for better or for worse, the sole member Vultyrous has decided to take a more mellow approach to his usual flavor of Black Metal.
Funeral Fornication has always been heavy on the synthetic sounds, as most solo projects tend to be out of necessity. However, this time around, they take a more direct role in the soundscape created on the album. This is largely due to the relaxation of the guitar and especially the vocals; the raw DSBM feel has been traded in for a calm, Post-Metal vibe that.
Black metal elements can be heard nearly everywhere on this album, but that’s really what they’ve been reduced to elements. Style aside, Funeral Fornication has always had a knack for melancholic melodies that sound like they belong in old video games.
"The Lamentation" turned to be a step forward for this project. Focus on Ambient and Progressive elements makes for an interesting listen to this album.
