Straight out of the pit, Blasphemour Records have a real treat in store – a four way split, coming out on half ox blood, half mustard vinyl. Ox Blood? Someone form a band called that right now. Four bands contributing a track each, drawing power from various hardcore roots and featuring past members of several acts that will surprise you.
The name alone gives you an idea of their musical inkling. Somewhere around the great swirling whirlpool and the crashing waves where detuned, caustic hardcore meets and doom metal, Funerals have dredged up a sound that mixes both these styles together, in a volatile, frothing beaker of rage and meaty riffage.
