|Album:||Fuimus, Non Sumus...|
|Release date:||September 2011|
01. Fuimus, Non Sumus...
03. The Day Heaven Wept
Fuimus, Non Sumus… translates to We Are, We Are Not. That in mind…
Fuimus a funeral doom band from Russia.
Non Sumus that whole brevity thing.
The album might only feature three songs on the track list, but each of the three is a virtual sonic marathon. The shortest of the three, "Autophobia" is a paltry 23 minute and change long… So the songs are loooooooooooonger than a Cricket tourney, but are they good?
Sure, they are.
This is funeral doom with a recipe not particularly different than other bands in the genre. Distorted guitars, plodding drums, growled vocals, all wrapped into one funeral doom burrito courtesy of a keyboard tortilla that wraps the whole thing up into one nice, portable, and not particularly messy enjoyable package.
One hand their songs leave me with an impression not too dissimilar from Shape Of Despair, only if they stretched their songs on and on and on. It sounds well enough and sits nicely in the back ground, tugging a little at your attention… But it lacks some of the more raw horrifying emotions that connect to the listener to separate them from others in the Fun Doom pack.
It didn't bore me, not by any means, but nor did it terrify me.
This album is a lot like whatever AMC will be airing at 1am tonight as part of their "Two Weeks of Terror" pre-Halloween schedule… should I come home from a bar after a few (dozen) pints, I could put either on and would not be bored or disappointed.
