Jordan Vauvert Certains vont bondir à l'idée de "rafraîchir" le black metal dépressif mais c'est bien à cette tâche que se consacre Funeral Fornication dans Solitude and Suicide. Les mélodies lancinantes tournent en boucle ("Channeling Volatile Energy"), Vultyrous hurle son désespoir à s'en déchirer les cordes vocales et la production est distante. Mais c'est surtout par les synthés qu'il surprend car ils sont très dramatiques voire théâtraux, ils nous attirent dans la tourmente comme le chant des sirènes... Favorite track: The Weeping Tree.

Nekobibu Definitely not pagan black thrash anymore... The aptly named Solitude and Suicide is all about Funeral... Fornication, not so much.
But damn, this album is as sad as it is brilliant. I feel like lying down on a carpet of dead leaves and waiting for death.

Metallurgical Fire Long story short: Funeral Fornication is one of the best and most unique black metal projects ever. This is intelligent, atmospheric music that is creepy as hell but catchy also. Favorite track: Mother of Peril.

Rich Kinman This is an amazing one-man atmo-black metal band. Damn good in my ears.


Funeral Fornication's third full-length album 'Solitude and Suicide' is a new approach for this canadian project which has traditionally followed a pagan/thrash black metal musical identity. On "Solitude and Suicide" we are presented with a grim and powerful yet at times contemplative album that defines the beginning of a new, darker era in the legacy that is Funeral Fornication.
