Each new album by Funeral Mist, a band whose origins date back to the mid-90’s, is the equivalent of a devastation of biblical proportions. « Salvation », released 2003, was the epitome of frantic, hostile fanaticism. « Maranatha », released 2009, reeked of an all engulfing decadence. « Hekatomb » builds on these grandiose fondations with decrepit odes, comparable to none but Funeral Mist. The intensity of the album is matched in uniqueness only by its odd structures. The haunting melodies that float eerily among the rumbles are of a kind once heard never to be forgotten again.
