I’m not sure how I stumbled on this band but they were sitting in my “to hear” folder for a while so I decided to give them a go today.

There’s no shortage of these old school death metal inspired bands nowadays, whether it be old school American or Swedish death metal, metal is lousy with them. I get a little bored with a lot of them but every now and then I find one that hits the spot. Funebrarum are one such band and… there’s not much more to really say. If you like old school death metal, this band hits it on the fucking head. It’s a tremendously intense, brutal, and furious album with some killer thrashing riffs and pummeling drums and bass. It does what a death metal album should do and it does it exceedingly well. Nothing new here, obviously, but some excellent death metal.
