Funeral Harvest are an international band with members from Norway and Italy that plays a very raw, satanic and old school form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled ep which will be released in October by Signal Rex.
Ritualistic sounding synths start off the ep along with some Gregorian chants a few seconds later before going into a heavier musical direction. Dark sounding melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the songs more of a raw feeling while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams. Demonic back up shouts can also be heard at times along with the songs also adding in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the tracks also adding in a decent amount of 90's influences as well as a later track also introducing clean playing onto the recording, all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Funeral harvest plays a style of satanic black metal that is very raw and old school in the 90's tradition. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Death and Satanism themes.
In my opinion Funeral Harvest are a very great sounding raw, old school and satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sacred Dagger" and "Omega". 8 out of 10.
