la_porte Impossible record to describe in a few words. Just know that this is pretty damn great! An album that takes a little time to grasp, but which delivers so much when one hangs in there! Such a rich sound, which unveils its great dynamics in glorious bursts of melody, atmosphere, throughout huge, maze-like songs which honor the bm legends of the 90s. Original yet familiar - highly recommended

Joao Rocha Early contender for album of the year. Black Metal done right. Favorite track: Wherein Seven Celestial Beasts Are Revealed to Him.

WolfGolem These songs are surprisingly memorable given their epic length and meandering structures. And kudos for giving the bass a distinct voice, and its right and noble place in the mix.

Brutalist_Receptacle I make offerings of primordial cultivars and broken fretboards, shuddering in the shadow of your hulking altar. You pass judgement, extract my withered ego, leaving me in return coliseum riffs, a little cowbell. Favorite track: Wherein a Messenger of the Devil Appears.

Swietowit11 This has my top spot so far in this very young year. Triumphantly depraved, sprawling, ominous, ritualistic black metal that has a pervasive ancient, cavernous atmosphere. A great improvement over the debut, both in the stronger riffs and MUCH fuller production. Black metal fans should not hesitate to buy this.

To all lone wolves & leftovers outthere who still worship the long forgotten maxim:
-black metal shall be gruesome, ugly and cold-
this truly is for you!
Nearly 5 years after the release of the succesful “The Archer Takes Aim” debut, the new Funereal Presence album named „Achatius“ finally will be unleashed on february 15th, 2019.
A grand intonation of a grotesque vision of fey faith that exhales the spirit and the feeling of a long forgotten era. Funereal Presence again ignores all fashion, trends & stereotypes but truly invokes an archaic beast with a new terrible face, sharp claws and insatiable hunger... and a stiff middle finger.
„Achatius“ is an elder vision of sound, performance, thematics & presentation the titan bands once had before the `market´ started to explode, and the ingenuity, idiosyncrasy and danger in the movement started to implode.

Funereal Presence is synonymous with pure fucking obsession for the core of black metal and beyond and „Achatius“ is the result of setting a determined focus on translating the pulsating darkness into tones and rhythm.

Bestial Devotion once said: „ I do the music that no one does for me anymore“. No more words needed.
