Funeral Cult are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Possession Done" which will be released in February by Lusitanian Music.
A very heavy doom metal sound starts off the ep while the vocals bring in a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls. Atmospheric sounding synths are also utilized at times along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 90's era and the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet melodic style along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them. Demonic sounding spoken word parts can also be heard briefly on the second track while all of the music also sticks to a slower direction.
Funeral Cult plays a musical style that takes black, doom and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and sorrow themes.
In my opinion Funeral Cult are a very great sounding atmospheric mixture of black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Frost". 8 out of 10.
