Apokalyptický black doom industrial. Francie.
Deep, dark, seductively evil...and infectiously, wickedly groovy, HAIKU FUNERAL generate an atmosphere of black, bleak, ironic paradox. Cold industrial ambience meets darkwave experimentation, liberally seasoned with death/doom and driven by the twin engines of pulsing, trippy, virtuoso bass and hoarse, snarling, savagely crazed voice.
Building on the foundations of sonic terror laid down in "Assassination In The Hashish Cathedral" + "If God Is A Drug" - "Nightmare Painting" retains the same horrifying imagery of death, madness and godless depravity while developing the musical themes to new levels of maturity...and subversiveness. Whilst the listener is drawn in like a moth to a flame, by the appealing rhythms and textures of post-everything avant-garde, the darkest of messages is being whispered direct to their cortex.
It's already too late to wake up: the nightmare is there, under your skin and echoing somewhere in the morbid depths of your soul. Such tender murder, indeed.
a diverse album, a jazz-funk/blackened metal hybrid with ambient experimentation....
