Information MMXXII

The Funeral Orchestra (TFO) emerges from the shadows as a sinister trio, shrouded in obsidian darkness. With a guitarist/vocalist, a bassist, and a percussionist, the trio weaves a haunting tapestry of sound. Eschewing conventional drumming, TFO delves into the abyss, melding orchestral percussion and trance-like rhythms into an ominous cacophony.

Their music is a funeral death ritual, where low-pitched strings intertwine with apocalyptic chants, giving birth to an abysmal soundscape that reeks of death and decay. In 2003, they unleashed their debut album, "Feeding The Abyss," a chilling testament to their mastery of the spectral arts. After this, a barren period ensued, marked only by sporadic releases.

In the desolate year of 2020, TFO emerged from their sepulchral silence, unleashing their second full-length opus, "Negative Evocation Rites." This album, a harrowing sonic journey, resonates with the cries of lost souls and the whispers of malevolent spirits. Their creativity surged forth like a blackened river, drowning listeners in a torrent of despair and anguish.

In the stygian depths of their music, TFO stands as a testament to the potency of darkness, crafting a chilling legacy that echoes through the corridors of eternity.
