Funeral Doom Band APHONIC THRENODY premiere pensive track on The Obelisk

It’s a truly diseased world we live in, and nothing reflects this better than the unending barrage of art that questions the dauntingly decadent existence all around us. The search for the excesses of the external world often lead to the questioning  of the inner self, as atmospheric death/funeral doom band Aphonic Threnody make impressively clear in their ‘Interrogation’ track, whose lyric video premiered on The Obelisk recently. The track is from the band’s upcoming The Great Hatred full-length, a mesmerizing journey through deep and dark crevices along the way to understanding ‘the human condition’. You can read more and check out the premiere AT THIS LINK, An excerpt –

“With “Locura” setting the stage for an airing of miseries, “Interrogation” follows and centers itself around the question “Does it even matter at all?” — the universe sucks so I’m going to say probably no — and is one of three tracks on the album to top 10 minutes. Make no mistake, however, it’s all a slog and that’s precisely how it’s intended.”

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.
