It’s the weekend! What better way to get it started than with the latest installment of “Funeral Doom Friday”. This weekly column looks to shed some light onto some of the darkest, most depressing, and discordant metal out there. Funeral Doom stems from the deepest depths of Death-Doom and Dirge music. Each week, the goal is to highlight some of the newest music or rediscover classic works from some of the earliest bands and originators such as Australia’s Mournful Congregation, United States’s Evoken, UK’s Esoteric and the Finnish Thergothon. Feel free to share your opinions and suggestions in the comments!
I am on Spring Break this week taking a much-needed vacation from my doctorate program. This week, it seemed fitting to build a playlist for everyone they can take with them for weekend travels or any other adventures that seemingly start to occur this time of year. The currently 20-song, five-hour playlist features tracks from genre greats new and old. This playlist is collaborative too. Meaning if there is anything I missed for this playlist, you are more than welcome to add to it. I am looking forward to seeing what you all have to add. If there is anything that is not available on Spotify (which is certainly true in some cases), feel free to add a YouTube link the comments of this article. I hope you have a great weekend!
