RUNEMAGICK - On Funeral Wings Digi-CD (Pre-order)
Shipping after the 31st of March 2023.
Swedish Doom/Death Metal classic remastered!
Runemagick are among the most underrated bands in the history of metal. Their relative obscurity is hard to pin down. Musically, in terms of songcraft, atmosphere, and immersion into the unearthly realms of the occult, they are basically without peers. Yet despite a prolific thirty-year existence, their reputation exists on the fringes: highly regarded by some but not highly enough considering the overall quality of their output.
After a couple of listens you will be hooked by the atmosphere and guitarist/vocalist Nicklas Rudolfsson’s recognizable riffs that really feel like riding “On Funeral Wings”. It is amazing how Runemagick’s sound evolves on every album and becomes better all the time. Obviously, the music is most of the time really slow, atmospheric and quite catchy but sometimes the tempo is increased even though you don’t hear blast beats on this album.
As a conclusion we must say that Runemagick really surpassed all expectations (again). If you are into Death/Doom Metal and don’t like this album, then there’s something wrong with you.
