Artists » Funeris Nocturnum
The birth of Funeris Nocturnum dates back to autumn of 1998, when it was founded by Torment and Grimort. Their first demo, Slay and Burn, was released September 1999, and it resulted in a deal with Woodcut Records. The debut album, Pure Satanic Blasphemy, was released in the spring of 2000. The early releases were brutal, aggressive and extremely fast metal in the vein of Marduk and Dark Funeral. The second album, From the Aspect of Darkly Illuminated (2001), was more progressive and technical album than the first one, with some trash and death metal influences. Music was as fast and aggressive as ever. By the end of the year 2001 Woodcut re-released Slay and Burn as a mini-cd with some cover songs, and a video of the song 'I Abhor Thee'. The third album, Code 666: Religion Syndrome Deceased was released 2002, and it is an intriguing and elaborate mixture of various genres of extreme metal.
