Staff review by

While 2018's biggest surprise comeback does not have too many surprises within itself, Hekatomb still hits harder than most black metal releases.

To prepare myself for this review, I revisited all the previous material. There isn't really a lot to dive into, but Funeral Mist's music has always spoken to me on a different level. Now I can safely say that this project by Arioch, a.k.a. Mortuus, is without a doubt my favorite within the current Swedish black metal scene. But what is it that captivates these corrupted ears? It's the raw, beautiful melodies that evoke such a blood-chilling atmosphere. The refined, violent, and so-gorgeous-you-can-hum-them riffs from Salvation remain nearly unmatched. And what about Maranatha, with its cleaner sound, daring experimentation, and such an unnerving, disgusting, fanatical vocal delivery? You see, there is plenty to love in Funeral Mist's sound, a sound that it took me an intense week to realize really is their very own.

Not a bad album at all. In Nominee Domini and Metamorphosis are my favourites.
