Black Funeral/Waves Of Weeping/Season Of MIst/Behemoth Productions/2007 CD Review

Black Funeral are a band from Texas that has been around since the 90's and plays a style that I would describe as being Apocalyptic Satanic/Occult/Ritualistic/Black Metal and this is a review of their 2007 album "Waves Of Weeping" which was released as a joint effort between Season Of Mist and Behemoth Productions.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with some brutal blast beats and some industrial style programming and on one song there is some tribal style beats utilized to conjure a demon, while the bass playing has a very powerful, strong and dark tone which is very easy to hear on this recording, as for the synths when they are utilized they bring a very dark ritualistic avant garde edge to the music.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark and evil with some weird distorted parts and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams mixed in with some spoken word ritualistic elements and Gregorian chants, while the lyrics cover Luciferian, Goetia, Demonology, Black Magick, Persion Dietys and the darker side of the Caballa, as for the production it has a very dark and heavy sound to it.

In my opinion this was a great album from Black Funeral and if you are a fan of this band, you probably already own this album. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nehemoth" "Lord Of The Dead" "Devourers Of Spirit" and "Loathsome Serpents". RECEMMONDED BUY.
