Funeral Fullmoon - Revelation of Evil

Funeral Fullmoon
Revelation of Evil
by "Metal Mark" Garcia at 02 January 2021, 7:23 AM

During the 90’s, the second coming of Black Metal (the so called Second Wave of Black Metal, or SWOBM) brought back the genre in a refreshed and new outfit, having as foundations what BATHORY, SARCÓFAGO, SODOM, KREATOR, HELLHAMMER/CELTIC FROST and DESTRUCTION left on their early works. It sparked a new revolution on the genre, and it’s the main reason for Black Metal is strong from those times to this day. And such musical load can be heard on Chilean one man band FUNERAL FULLMOON, as can be heard on “Revelation of Evil”.

The band’s musical work in on a similar way to the early pioneers of Norwegian Black Metal as MAYHEM and DARKTHRONE. It sounds raw and bitter, funereal and harsh, using a very simple and hooking approach in a similar way of what was usual during the years between 1991 and 1995. Of course, the band’s aim is not to make something new, but the way it sounds is very good, full of energy and with a personality pulsing on its songs. On the sonority, as could be expected, it’s that old and crude approach used during the 90’s, with simple nasty instrumental tunes. Of course, it could be better, but it’s good in this way, and it fits on what the band plays. But although the filthy and rawness, the listeners will not have problems to understand what is being played.

The morbid catchy ambience of “Perpetual Hate” (with charming simple and hooking guitar riffs), the abrasive funeral aesthetics used on “Cursed of My Poison Mind” and on “Secret of the Moon”, the harsh and fast tempos of “Revelation of Evil”, and “Under the Shinning Moon” are songs that explore the best features presented on the first half of the 90’s, but in a personal way. And are the best ones from the album as well. FUNERAL FULLMOON is a very good band, and solving some little problems on the sound quality (something using a better sonority could operate miracles, as can be heard on MYSTERIIS“About Christian Despair”, a perfect blend between the nasty ambiences of the 90’s with a modern outfit for those days). But “Revelation of Evil” is a fine release for those who miss the 90’s.
