The band plays an essentially instrumental sort of post-metal with keyboards adding to the usual “metal band” sound. On top of that, the string quartet appears here and there for extended periods of time where atmosphere supersedes riffs.What’s more, this album receives narration, spoken by Gracie Davis, which adds yet another layer to the experience, effectively transforming it in an audio novel of sorts.
Funeral Garden is melancholic and contemplative, ethereal and also tangibly heavy. This is a rather unique experience, and it’s quite memorable. (Dæv Tremblay at canthisevenbecalledmusic.com)
