Endless Funeral: A Second Beginning

This is the work of French Canadian Martin Pleau and is available for download at the link below.

The idea started in 2003 but took Martin several years to find the right support to bring his dream to life. That support was Jonathon Hooper who produced the dense drum programming which provides the death metal rhythmic platter to Martin's rather scary militant Christian lyrics. I can only hope the barmy religious fanaticist songs are as tongue in cheek as they are bonkers.

The album is more of a long EP than a full CD, clocking in at just 27 minutes but its packed to the gills with head banging rhythms and fiery guitar breaks. An instrumental piece provides a change in tempo after the earlier tracks which were dominated by the death metal vocals. The title track is more restrained and the song "If only eyes could see" even reminds me of Devil Doll. "The end of Suffering" is actually quite melodic demonstrating a good degree of versatility in presentation overall. Pity that the final solo piano piece had to end by condemning 80% of the world's people to eternal damnation! An album to blow yourself up in a crowded market to.
