FLEGETHON
FLEGETHON
Behind A Side Of Times
(Marche Funebre Productions / Stygian Crypt Productions)
79:42min

The Funeral Doom world must be a very desolated place otherwise such dark offerings like the presented release of the Russian Funeral Doom fanatics FLEGETHON are lacking in every explanation. Since their origin in 1999 the band has released a couple of more or less interesting CDs but Stygian Crypt Productions has given this band a chance to reach a wider audience by re-releasing their sixth album - originally recorded in 2005 - via their side label March Funebre Productions. The band name has been very well chosen because as one of the five rivers of the Greek underworld nobody will expect anything else than the musical transformation of pure abyssal darkness. And the four overtime songs - nearly all of them are exciding the 20 minutes mark - are really an extreme trip for all suicidal souls out there. So far, so good - but what makes this release so interesting - because I normally love my life and the Doom cosmos is not my most preferred musical place to stay - are the incorporated "flicker of light" which are used to avoid 20 minutes cycles of pure despair. Especially the opener 'Return From Condition Of A Deep Amnesia' is in the position - after 10 minutes of pure suicidal Doom - to grip the listener with such a remarkable counterpoint that it will find a way directly into your ear like a reminder of the last sad loss of your life. This album definitely needs enough time from every listener so please invite darkness via following links www.flegethon.narod.ru, www.stygiancrypt.com
