Dark Alternative group The Funeral March have released a new EP called Persephone, taking inspiration from the Greek Queen of the Underworld. The EP explores such provocative themes as hope and loss, dreams, desperation and despair.
The track “Figured“ begins with a captivating and wild insistent beat and a maniacal thrum. The purposefully unsettling and moody lyrics are delivered with reverberating vocals that seem to echo from the depths of a tumultuous and dark void. “Nite Nite“ is heralded by capricious riffs within a lurching soundscape that is alluringly disorientating while the lyrics and vocals are beckoning and beseeching. With a heavy and dissonant guitar “Two As One“ entices the listener into a hypnotic and dizzying soundscape coaxed by mesmerizing vocals. “Kiss Me“ is an intoxicating track with lyrics that add to the feeling of taking a dreamlike plunge into grim yet seductive depths. The music and vocals are purposefully awry and off kilter adding to the surreal dark feel of the track. With a sinister and portent beginning “Wasted Moon“ incites a feeling of unease. The heavy guitars and resonant vocals on the track inspire a sense of dazed foreboding.
The EP, which was mixed and mastered by Adam Stilson (Panic Priest), with cover art created by Greg Rolfes (eleven12 Designs) features exceptional tracks which will appeal to anyone interested in exploring the darker side of alternative music.
