Where the LP "Reduced to Sludge" settled their style, newer work on this EP further intensifies the strong doom-death feel. Funerus makes grinding DM riffs which develop over the course of a song with hints of melody & layers of texture, building a crushing mood around a theme. On this EP, melodic elements serve a role w/o becoming fluff. Funerus uses melody to underscore the vocal rhythm of a chorus & bring out variation in riffs; the repetition increases the morbid sense of doom. Sublime :)
Favorite track: The Black Death.
