THE FUNERAL ALBUM
Finnish death metal troupe Sentenced have decided to call it a day on their latest release, aptly titled THE FUNERAL ALBUM. This 13-track disc finds the quintet saying goodbye with dollops of depressing mid-paced metal like “Her Last 5 Minutes”, while picking up the morbidity on melodic death marches like “Vengeance is Mine”. Despite the album’s rather somber overall tone, this disc doesn’t match up to the band’s previous cold-hearted endeavors, making it a bit of a disappointing swan song. Nonetheless, THE FUNERAL ALBUM’s melancholic meanderings are a fitting parting shot for a band fascinated with the art of dying from the get go.
