The inimitable Funeral Mist – one of the most iconic bands on the NoEvDia roster – has delivered unto us “Deiform”. Seven musical pieces contemplating the nature of divinity and mortal existence through the fiery lens of black metal.
As did the three past albums, “Deiform” exhibits a completely different approach to sound production compared to its predecessor. Nevertheless, from the first song to the last, the source of this multi-layered madness is unmistakable; all the classic Funeral Mist characteristics are present. Ambitious interludes which are impressive compositions in their own right. Innovative use of various samples which become a living, breathing part of the music. And frenzied oration delivered by what many believe to be the best and most versatile vocalist in black metal. All culminating in spiritual violence in its crudest form.
“Deiform” is a holistic experience, in the sense that music, art, and photography – all deriving from the project’s mastermind, D Rostén – is connected, and thereby best experienced in unison.
