Funeral Doom Band APHONIC THRENODY premiere eviscerating track on No Clean Singing

Have you heard yet the ethereal death knell that funeral/doom band Aphonic Threnody are bringing in with their latest full-length, The Great Hatred? For the uninitiated, this band encapsulates a myriad range of overwhelmingly desolate themes set to debilitating and often dissonant song structures, creating a truly demanding and despairing atmosphere. With No Clean Singing premiering ‘Drowning’ from this upcoming release, which you can check AT THIS LINK,one thing is certain: the hatred is real, and it seeps in every note of this track. An excerpt:

“… the song also furnishes glimpses of tragic beauty through subdued singing and silky guitar arpeggios. It creates a feeling of floating, with glimmers of moonlight penetrating the usually crushing weight of loss that the music brings down. And make no mistake, the song is indeed crushing…”

Reviews:

– “all I can say is “fuck yes” over and over again even after several listens” – Head Banger Reviews (US)

Aphonic Threnody:  (International) – The Great Hatred (October 16th, 2020)

Genre – Atmospheric Death/Doom Metal
Release Date – October 16th, 2020
Record Label – Transcending Obscurity Records

For fans of – My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Noctu, Officium Triste, Poema Arcanvs, early Anathema, Illimitable Dolor, Towards Atlantis Lights, Et Moriemur

Members of Towards Atlantis Lights, Dea Marica, Arrant Saudade and more collaborate to conjure up the finest kind of death/doom metal that encompasses the best qualities this style has to offer – stirring melodies, heaving riffs, immersive atmosphere, and some of the lowest, most anguished vocals possible alternating with lucid, spoken passages. None of it is overbearing or lingers on for too long as the songs waft through the doom vacuum, making their presence felt and imperceptibly changing something inside the unsuspecting listener. Much happens during the course of the hour and Aphonic Threnody don’t follow a strict formula, leaving things open-ended and unpredictable as they keep changing things around without disrupting the emotional temperament. The Great Hatred makes for an engaging listen and will make you come back to unravel its richly layered and elegantly intertwined compositions. It’s akin to living life all over again. And again.
