Funebrarum - Exhumation Of The Ancient LP (Black vinyl)


The modern day worship of old-school death metal, whatever the listener may take that term to mean, has led to some interesting if not entirely inspiring music being produced in the last several years, and Funebrarum is no stranger to that movement. Exhumation of the Ancient is a case study in such music, as I find it rather difficult to focus on the quality of the music itself over the slew of bands it reminds me of at every twist and turn. Off the tip of my tongue, I would say that this EP is a tribute to Incantation, Demilich, and bits of Entombed, Immolation, and Autopsy, but you could name just about any non-Floridian death metal act from the first half of the 90's and make a convincing argument that this EP is influenced by their work.
