The Funeral Pyre

sachavonkarl74 The first 30 seconds of "Revenge by Fire" convinced me to get the whole album! It is a face-melting blend of speed and black metal, reminiscent of Hellripper! KVAEN is a Swedish solo project much like Hellripper but many known guest musicians helped J. Björnfot in his endeavor. Altogether it is really a solid debut album, I loved the melodies and the pace changes in the second half too, ending with a "calm" instrumental one. Well-done!! Favorite track: Revenge By Fire.

warchrist30 Kvaen seems to be one of those can do no wrong kind of projects. Favorite track: The Wolves Throne.

alexander666_85 This album is one of the recent most powerful expression of pure black metal which sounds "underground" but really well played. I find lots of speed/heavy stuff that fills expertly the main dark atmosphere. A real new good one. Thanks KVAEN. Favorite track: Revenge By Fire.

about

Physical editions availalbe at

Funeral Pyre delivers well-executed Black Metal from the north, from blistering blashyrkh riffs that will rattle you in the neck, and take the listener back to the times when evil reigned from 80s classic speed metal riffs to ringing Dive bombs, right up to the church burning pagan worshiping 90's Black Metal, Kvaen is like a marriage between the northern 90's black metal with a hint of the Swedish melodic black metal, Funeral Pyre grabs the listener and takes it on a wild ride through Norwegian deep forests through mountains and deep valleys.
  Kvaen keeps the listener engaged with a knife against the throat until the beautiful end of Funeral Pyre will go down in Black Metal history
