The first demon to escape the gates this month is Funerus, a side project of Incantation mastermind John McEntee. Funerus play abysmal and turgid death metal, with the occasional outburst of speed. They usually keep things slow or mid-paced, though. This is a good example of what real, old-school death metal is like—there are no keyboards, female vocals, nonsensical lyrics about forests … Songs titles such as “Festering Earth” and “Stagnant Seas” tip you off to what you’re in for with these guys.
