TYRANNY
TYRANNY
Aeons In Tectonic Interment
(Dark Descent Records)
51:09min

Wow, I had no idea TYRANNY were still around and jamming. Their last release was the well received 2005 album "Tides Of Awakening" and I thought for sure that was going to be their last effort. Luckily Dark Descent Records was able to awaken the beast from its slumber and a decade later we get this new piece of Funeral Doom on our hands titled "Aeons In Tectonic Interment". A lot of things can change in 10 years; you move from an apartment to a house, you get a college degree, etc. TYRANNY have kept true to their form and have proven that time has been good to them. When you first take a look at the album you see 5 tracks, but in this genre those 5 tracks run a total time of just over 51 minutes. Plenty of time to absorb the darkness and loathing on this record as you would expect on any Funeral Doom jam. For those of you that are not familiar with Funeral Doom then let me give you some insight. The music is slow, mood driven, and focuses more in the dark ambience. That being said I can't say that I was completely blown away by this album as I kind of knew what I was walking into when I hit play. Don't get me wrong I really think this is a good album and I think that they really did a better job on the production than their previous effort, but most importantly they reminded the other Finnish Doom bands what they should be striving for when making music. The tracks that stood out for me on this album were 'Bells Of The Black Basilica' and 'A Voice Given Unto Ruin'. Overall TYRANNY have delivered a solid effort here. All the necessary elements of making a Funeral Doom album are here. You get musicians that work on other major projects (PROFETUS, WORMPHLEGM) and are reminding the scene in Finland that you can't count out TYRANNY just because they decided 10 years was a solid number between albums. I'm honestly hoping we can get another album a lot sooner than a decade, I guess time will only tell. Fans of the genre should check out this effort and also check out the growing Finnish Funeral Doom scene as there are a lot of solid acts.
