The best thing I can say about Starless Aeon is that it doesn't sound like a band playing songs. It sounds like a grimy funeral dirge, a torturous lament of sorrow and doom. It is a soundtrack for ritual sacrifice and funerals, which is perfect. I want rain and tears. This is it.
Favorite track: depressor.
Formed in early 2013, Funerary came to pass by the adherence of five souls looking to coagulate in depression, grief, and anger. Finding solace in dwindling light, the band creates a musical presence that is powerful and progressive in the realm of doom metal by combining what can only be described as cosmic, transcending songs ridden with despair and indignity.
Creating a dark, heavy, and yet tranquil atmosphere, Bell Witch are quintessential Funeral Doom, and that without guitars. All their albums are, while slightly varying in tone and atmosphere, masterpieces of the sub-genre. Dragonsmoke
Usnea are simply one of the best doom bands in existence. Even here, their first release, kicks some serious ass and plays in such a mature and confident manner. So glad they signed to Relapse. Yawning Druid
