Funerus: Reduced To Sludge

In the case of this album, 'Sludge' may be the most appropriate use of a noun ever to be included in a title. Eight years is about as slow-moving as you can get, but Funerus have always taken their time between releases. The guitar sound and grinding riffs of 2003's Festering Earth were about as heavy as you could get and Funerus further corrupted the underground with their hefty tunes. And that hefty and murky sound that Funerus are renowned for remains with them on Reduced To Sludge and has been developed even further. The sound here is immense. The riffs alone are like a chainsaw hacking through flesh, tearing at the tissue and occasionally snagging on a bone. Jill and John McEntee's vocal-work is equally blunt and traumatising. This is just filthy underground death metal sludgily (see?) gnawing its way into your skull. Unremittingly brutal, Reduced To Sludge is absurdly heavy. Highly recommended.
