Funerary Box: Hell-Hammered Horror 12"
Latest 12" from this cult metal band. As if it weren't obvious from the record's title, the influences here are primarily from the international scene of raw metal that so influenced the first generation of black metal bands... think Hellhammer, Venom, Sarcofago, Impetigo, etc. This definitely has its own unique thing going on... the vocals are a little death-ier than I associated with that style, and the music can swing back and forth between primitive Hellhammer-esque bashing and a slightly more rocking, Venom-inspired sound, but the whole thing is raw, mean, and very dark. They even finish things off with a blistering Rolling Stones cover... didn't see that one coming, did you? Rescued from Life Records
