I have to admit, this is a pretty new chapter in my musical life. I was introduced to the genre last year, but I have been scrounging everywhere I could in search of the utter depth of the abyss. This is how far I’ve come. In the halls of residents Colosseum, Evoken, Mesmur, Shape Of Despair and Slow, there dwells another animal. A creature of the night, veiled in a smokey fog, that exceeds all of the above in sheer terror inducing Funeral madness. A haunting tritone synth opens the show, complete with chilling overtones which in time forms a downward spiral into the ever dwelling darkness below. As the high notes dissipate, the dark undertones of the bass becomes more appearant, and sets off a cacophony which is finished off with a series of blows by a sledgehammer-like drum part. As A.K. iEzor starts flinging his harrowing, ghastly guttoral growls unto whoever’s listening, he is recreating the initial terror I first felt when I plunged into this world almost a year ago. The recurring overture in the synth, like howling voices from lost souls, has become the hallmark of the band. Like a constant reminder of how dark the subtext is, there need to be a contrasting gleam of hope(pardon the pun). It works fantastic in this context, and the entirety of the first track leaves me in utter awe of how well sounding a band can be. From the pummeling riffs that seems taken from a horror tale, to the eerieness of the prolonged synth sections this a journey well worth the wait. Like a layer of mist, they form the bond between the four tracks on the album. I know I say this alot, but few bands make use of the endless downward spiral of notes to enforce the sincere thematics of nihility, futility and despair. It was an effect I first heard in Mesmurs “S” album, which has haunted me ever since. As one familiar to the world of Funeral Doom, I was surprised by the appearance of David Unsaved from Ennui, as well as John Devos of Mesmur as collaborating composer and drummer. The drumming is an essential part in the soundscape over the four songs, and it’s always on point. It serves both to drive the composition forward, and to underline the sincere feeling of despair; of being lost with no future, no past, no purpose, alone in a barren, bleak and cold environment.

Vocalist A.K. iEzor formed Comatose Vigil A.K. in 2017, after not being allowed to use the original name by Alexander Orlov. Nevertheless, this immense output shows that even though the name is slightly changed, everything else is turned up to eleven. “The Day Heaven Fell” marks the end of this evangelium in nihilism, and closes with a booming riff parade which drives the angels back to where they once came from.

For 70 minutes, spanned over four tracks, Comatose Vigil A.K. clearly marks its territory. As the album loops towards the end, the atmosphere darkens, and the overtoures are not given as much space. It’s like the shaft of vague light slowly collapses, leaving the listener in utter darkness and solitude. A funeral for one, left in its own filth once the songs of charred angels subside.
