Funerus are a band from Pennsylvania that consists of many underground legends that plays a very brutal form of death/doom metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Reduced To Ashes" which was released by Ibex Moon Records.
Drums range from slow to midpaced drumming with some fast playing and blast beats being used at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they sound very powerful.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast riffs that combine the most brutal elements of death and doom metal together with some dark sounding melodies being thrown in at times, and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are all deep death/doom metal growls, while the lyrics cover dark and gory themes, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy and brutal sound that goes back to the early 90's doom/death metal sound.
In my opinion Funerus are a very good old school sounding death/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Behind the Door' "Leatherface" "Death Of A God" and "Time Of Death". RECEMMONDED BUY.
