Filsufatia are a 1 man band from Malayasia that has been featured before in this zine with the musical style being and instrumental form of depressive black metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 demo "The Grand Eulogy".
"Fallen Leaves(Intro)" begins with some soft keyboard playing which also utilizes a variety of many different keys and serves as an intro for the demo.
"The Grand Eulogy(Welcome Home)" begins with some soft and depressive keyboards leading to some drums and post black metal style guitar riffs which also combine with the keyboards and after a few minutes there is a brief use of melodic leads and the song closes with keyboards.
In December(The Final Chapter)" begins with some soft acoustic guitar playing which utilizes some finger picking and full chords while also being diverse and adding in some keyboards and after awhile guitar riffs and drums kick in while also keeping the keyboards around and after awhile melodic post black metal guitar leads make their presence known and coming with the rhythms and keyboards for a brief period before heading into a different riff and the song closes with some acoustic guitars.
"Laverne(A Million Miles Nowhere)" begins with some soft keyboard playing which lead to some drums, depressive black metal guitar riffs and melodic leads and after awhile keyboards start kicking in as well as the music and leads getting more diverse and the song closes in a soft direction.
Song themes cover darkness and depression, while the production has a very strong, powerful and dark sound.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Filsufatia and if you are looking for something original you sould check out this demo and it is also available as a free download http://www.uploadmb.com/dw.php?id=1376703996.
