Undead Revelations is the new album from black metal band Funerary Bell & is out on February 23rd 2018 via Saturnal Records.
9 tracks of depressing & introspective blackness, Funerary Bell aren’t just about heaviness, instead using the death march like sound of the guitars & the clean, dulcet vocal tones to deliver shockingly bleak sounding metal.
Opening track, Birth – Come Undone is the soundtrack to a cold, winter funeral while Goat of Mendes delivers a faster, more groove-orientated track with nasty, hellish vocals dragging the hard rock riffs along. The latter of the two even throws out a blazing old-school guitar solo briefly.
It’s not quite funeral levels but it’s certainly leaning in that direction. What makes it different are the death metal bursts & flashes of hard rocking solos. Tracks like The World Became Flesh providing crushing heaviness with fiery drum beats & deafening vocals, Revelation: Pt II with its brutal tempo changes & desperate screaming and the devilishly imaginative Tree on the Planet Grave.
A unique listen ends on the defining album track, Spectral Moonchild. A song filled with gothic rhythm, head-banging metal & slithery rock riffs & solos. An impressive finish to a very impressive album.
