Another fine release from the mysterious Van label of Germany. This is the full-length debut for Funeral Procession, who have been around for about eleven years now, in true Black Metal style, but have released nothing so far but demos, splits, and an EP.

I was expecting more depressive stuff in the vein of Forgotten Tomb maybe, but FP are more old-school than that, you might almost call them 'orthodox', as this is classic BM in the tradition of Darkthrone or Mayhem. The riffs are solid, with a nice snarl to the guitar sound, and the vocals are raspy but intelligible. The songs are not always fast, and there is quite a bit of dynamic going on here. This kind of BM does not invite long paragraphs needed to describe it, so reviews are often short, but that should not be taken to mean this is no good, it is quite good indeed. This band won't win any awards for innovation, but that's obviously not what they are after. If you like classic nordic Black Metal with no keys or other crap to dilute it, then Funeral Procession have just the thing.
