FUNEREAL MOON-Grim...Evil...(Difuntes Productions-Mexico-1997)


Funereal Moon was formed in 1994 from the ashes of Leteo, a solo project of Impure Ehiyeh. Following a demo, their first album 'Beneath The Cursed Light Of A Spectral Moon' was released in 1996, followed by two vinyl EPs in 1997 and a cassette MLP. Funereal Moon's unusual style, the fact that they were an ambient group first and a black metal band second, made them stand out from the black metal underground. Their music of the years 1994 to 1998 can be described as archaic and occult black ambient: murky, distorted synth tones, sparse samples and field recordings, and an array of grumbling, screaming, or speaking voices, with only few and not less unconventional black metal tracks in between. From 1998 to 2007 the band remained silent and only commemorative/best of compilations were released during those years. Funereal Moon returned in 2008 with 'Satan's Beauty Obscenity'. Their style of black metal, although less ambient-ish now, was strange and unusual as ever. In 2009 however, Impure Ehiyeh decided to reinvent Funereal Moon as a much faster and cruder black metal band. This radical change of style towards a primitive, chaotic and violent bestial black metal is documented on their last 4 albums. (all info from Discogs) click me
