The Funeral and the Twilight: Sullen Life///Blighted Death


Sullen Life///Blighted Death is the latest album from Minneapolis' The Funeral and the Twilight. As the title suggests this is dark sullen music. Imagine a bunch of death metal afficianados starting a post punk band. There are many elements of early punk esthetics to be found on this album and at times the vocals sound like early Joe Strummer. The music itself takes on a horror film like feel, that is hightened by sinister vocals and piercing reverb laden instrumentals. The album gives a unique take on the post hardcore arena and has many interesting elements. Stream and buy Sullen Life///Blighted Death at the link below.
