The selection is comprehensive but the numbering is not indicative of any type of rank or value: The order of band appearance is arbitrarily chosen.
E-mail me if you want to suggest any relevant bands! There was most definitely a point in time between and where their releases had become known to a wider file-sharing population of classic death and thrash metal fandom and most any chance to get your Funeral Nation - State Of Insanity / Abomination on their album or demo would involve either a shitty bootleg, an unauthorized compilation, and at the time lets say ish I would quickly move on from the difficult to find items for the sake of keeping a wishlist handy in the future.
Today we live in a gilded age for this kind of research because once in a while I am handed Avión - Javier Barría - Llorar En la Calle gift in the form of a full and well-curated Bandcamp page full of every Funeral Nation release, official or otherwise. It appears that the original trio of Funeral Nation began as a conjoining of ex-members of pre- Funeral Bitch speed metal band named Assault that would link those musicians with Paul Speckmann MasterDeath Strikeetc.
None of it really matters and the point is that Funeral Nation formed due to the collapse of a couple of extreme thrash bands and what looks like on paper a set of failed relationship with Paul Speckmann. Could be off base with that one but from that point the wayward thrashers forged their own path as a trio that would see only one personnel change in the years since Seems like the label was incredibly forceful with Funeral Nation at the time and did everything they could to usurp creative control over mix and mastering, but hey more about that soon.
I would say that this demo is more of a novelty to see how the songs continued to develop. Most all of these songs would end up on their debut full-length. From what I gather the band sent in a finished record mixed and mastered as intended and the record label retooled it. Now, there are two camps for this sort of situation and I can Papa Wemba - Maitre DEcole (Rumba na Rumba) stay neutral to a certain point.
It is blasphemous, relentless, heavy and indisputably evil. Is it -that- great? No, I mean I love the riffs here but both versions Across The Street - Joss Mills - Love Is True this album have feel mishandled in terms of clashing levels on performances that never Funeral Nation - State Of Insanity / Abomination look too far beyond Slayer -isms.
This release would be the end of their collaboration with drummer Dave Chiarella who would join the nascent Disinter after their initial line-up fell through. Dean Olson joined on drums and has been their choice at the kit since. The band created their own label, RK Productionsand have been independent ever since.
What is this demo all about? Nonetheless the kind of folks who will love this demo most are probably big fans of stuff like Abomination and Master.
Not feeling the original demo version? Sources typically suggest that Chiarella was in Disinter from until but their first demo had a different drummer init seemed like he joined for the reunion in What can you expect? Twenty minutes of jogging, ruinous horror and macabre hung brutal death metal. Not a major point of interest but I found this good enough to warrant a mention before wrapping up.
Funeral Nation picked things back up in and have released pretty much ideal versions of all of their official recordings, every extra archive, two new EPs, a split and several compilations since. I admire the hell out of that. Like Like. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
