Hayduke X Funeral Fornication is what you get if Dead Can Dance was spiced with a reasonably healthy portion of black metal. Mystical. Beautiful. Visceral. Dangerous. Favorite track: Cold Colossus.

Metallurgical Fire Why is this so good? I was actively in the mood to be against this album, and I waited a long time to even listen to it. Now it is one of my favorite HDR releases. This is such a strong piece of work; all elements come together so well, and it’s an amazing vocal record in every style presented. It’s a classic.

Jarak Possibly the best (or at least the most polished) Funeral Fornication album. Definitely worth checking out by every black metal fan. Favorite track: Noone has the right to exist.

Dark blood makes up our ancestry The sands of time bury the windswept halls of history And through the cunt of malice Births a disease called humanity O'venemous primate Pray to thy father, thy shepherd Guiding the hand into putrid conformity You were lost before you began Deaf and blind In the land of pain Beyond the valley of the shadow of death Screaming into silence A plague awoken From fiery embers Once beyond the scope of memory Insane and drawn to lustful deeds This beast was spewed from foul womb To fornicate and feed
3.
Man becomes his god, before the last grows cold Shimmering in golden light, dead amongst all false idols Behold the head of abandon Eyes that stare and tell of revolt Against the choirs of eternal servitude And light the way to freedom Through the studded gateway to morning stars Flooding the depths of hope with blood as we march with haste to ancient lands Stalking our sigil, a goat`s head lament, into the soil as a thorn with flesh Embrace undoing Creation reversed So spake the oracle of demise Anti-divine enthrallment And the world dares to scorn For aeons man has dreamt of the stars And aspired to reach those gods of the night Cosmic light has all but waned On this night, like no other before We are drawing down the stars And the world bares the scorn

O`Night Mother Who prowls the skies Nebular and tentacled Spreads wide her gape To birth twin suns And deformed, the other blind Truest gemini Akashic and volatile Born of a great divide The two that should not be And by their deeds unleashed The great smouldering sea And fire fills the sky Burning the path to heavens Flames rend and tear All the world asunder To cleanse the disease O`Night Mother
5.
I lay down cold, frozen On a monolithic slab Of unparalled hatred Withered, my form absorbs the odium I merge with stell, I burn with anger And become the sentient beast With a heart of ice beneath (the surface) My soul is cased in glass Stowed away in an icy chamber Hidden deep within me A relic of my former self Void of blood This empty being I've transcended, awoken And become self-aware My eyes are blazing With eternal fire Farewell to the flesh Clensed in flames And now grown cold frozen

Cold now are the stas that once burned with cosmic fire Dying are the worlds that once waged war on each other And the skies are torn asunder with celestial claws of death Raining sorrow upon the worshipers of the cults of the sun Amassing in the shadows are the reapers of the light Who defy all cosmic law in hope to bring eternal nightfall They are the spectral heralds of a galacial inquisition Soon the dead will follow and sweep all worlds into darkness No one has the right to exist The myriad of worlds will fall into blackness Scattered into atoms from astral bombardment Skyfire blazing relentless from above Crashing down into the realms of the cults of the sun The eye of the universe opens wide, aware Glowing, ever watchful of the aeon of destruction All is cast away into blackened formless voids Dark forgotten prophecies eternally fulfilled No one has the right to exist
8.
Snow-capped regions, shrouded legions A flame that burns of purest blue Moved into the light that shadow rejected Opaque and still The lurker`s burning eyes, lidless The hunter stalks the tracks His carrion prey A mere reflection of himself The beast itself Was never really living at all We none of us as we appear In a polar dusk The rotting of the day We were never really living at all Lone, the hunter starts a fire Offering carrion to winter gods The flames reflect upon his eyes The man is not as he appears The hunter sheds his mortal husk To become the raging beast Whose hour has come at last And leers at the cold stars above, seething

Darkness welcomes, though offers no release In eclipse, consumed, I am forsaken Love subsides, am I alive The fading light once burned so bright Cimmerian shade, murksome and loathing From sluggish abyss, no honour bestowed No longer can I fight the rogue inside my heart I am becoming Unto night thy light is drawn Lo, the darkest road unfolds To the dark I now belong There's a rogue inside my heart With bright and blazing eyes Staring down the bleak horizon I am the liar Actor with many masks My role is self-destruction My world fades to black The darkest road unfolds
10.
I am in defeat Conquered and forgotten So very cold So very alone Soullessly I drone Lost within this sea Of Misery and sorrow Waves that do not clean My apperances is as a corpse Though I still breathe the air But still I endure decay Forever decay I am compromised

about

Hypnotic Dirge Records veteran Funeral Fornication releases its long awaited new album Pandemic Transgression to the public. Two years removed from its last full-length album, Solitude and Suicide, Funeral Fornication sole-member Vultyrous has used the time to create an album defining the pinnacle Funeral Fornication sound. Experimental, unique, catchy, bleak, depressing, yet impossible to define, the album is possibly best described as Eclectic progressive ambient black metal with elements of doom. On Pandemic Transgression, Vultyrous shows his ability to write captivating material using a variety of influences including powerful clean vocals which has become a stable of the new material. Altogether, the material within Pandemic Transgression is a strong mix of catchy, dark and melancholic music that shows that maturity of a long standing and evolving project. Released in a 12 page booklet including an album sleeve, this is certainly the pinnacle of Funeral Fornication's discography, and the necessary soundtrack to your funeral fucking fornications!
