FUNERAL MOTH x Asakusa Deathfest 2018
Tokyo based Doom Metal band FUNERAL MOTH was formed in 2005.
They started as a 3 piece doom band and released their first demo in 2006 and EP in 2008. In early days, their musical style was extremely slow and heavy straightforward crushing Doom Metal in hell.
In 2012, they added new additional guitar player to enrich their doomed harmonies into deep abyssal sea and finally released their monolithtic funeral doom metal 1st album "dense fog" in 2014. "dense fog" showed their music drowned into more atmospheric and bleak one in shadows of the sun.
In 2015, their original bass/vocal Nobuyuki Sentou was replaced with new member Ryo Amamiya.
With this lineup, they released 2nd album "transience" in 2016, which have more progressive and alternative style through their music then received critical acclaim from many magazines/webzines like Decibel, Metal Injection and so on.
And until the last sunset, their everlasting voyage for doomed nirvana will continue...
They will stop beriefly at the harbor of Asakusa Deathfest 2018 and those who come there shall be doomed!!!
