Radare’s 'Der Endless Dream' is all saloon bar menace, with its twanging guitar, halting drums, and droning organ. The German group have a tremendous sense of style and appreciation for high drama. It’s a cliche but this is music fit for soundtracks, and it’s all too telling that Twin Peaks is referenced as you easily imagine this blared out of the roadhouse speakers.
We are living in a post-doom world, and Fvnerals are one of the leaders. Leaning further towards Earth-like territory, Wounds isn’t just heavy riffage, it’s a stark tonal landscape with a pitch black airiness that crosses over from depressive doom to dark ambient drone. Perfect stuff for late autumnal S.A.D..
