Marche Funèbre – Einderlicht (Hypnotic Dirge Records) (September 25)

Empyrium‘s Markus Stock produces this gloomy gothic doom/death act out of Belgium.

With Stock at the helm, you know it’s going to sound impeccable…well, at least on the cleaner toned bits, of which there are many. I guess he’s unused to distorted tones nowadays, given how little they’re emphasized in his own band and those he produces like Alcest, whic...

Οι αγαπημένοι (μου) Marche Funèbre επιστρέφουν εντυπωσιακά και αυτή τη φορά, με την κυκλοφορία του τέταρτου ολοκληρωμένου δίσκου τους, “Einderlicht”. Το συγκρότημα δημιουργήθηκε το 2008 επί βελγικού εδάφους και από τότε σκορπίζει το death/doom σκοτάδι του μ...

This is the fourth album by this Belgian quintet, whose name seems awfully familiar, but for some reason they are new to me. Formed 12 years ago, they released their first album in 2011 with the last one released in 2017. The material in this album was written between 2016 and 2019 and the title track is their first with lyrics written in Dutch. The current line-up has recorded their last three albums together, so they are a pretty tight...

Marche Funèbre are a band which have demonstrated, particularly over their last two albums that they are capable of writing world class death-doom. This year has the Belgians returning to finally follow up ‘Into the Arms of Darkness’ their excellent 2017 album with their long awaited fourth album ‘Einderlicht’.

This has been an album which has been a slow process, but one worth the time and effort as what Marche...

Never change a winning team en daarom werkte zowat exact hetzelfde team van de vorige albums van de Belgische doommetalband Marche Funèbre opnieuw mee aan het nieuwe Einderlicht. Zelfde bandbezetting, zelfde labels, zelfde producer en zelfs dezelfde verantwoordelijke voor het artwork. Krijgen we op Einderlicht dan gewoon een doorslagje van het vorige album? Dat niet. De band laat zijn sound wat evolueren, wat volwassener, wat meer uit...

He's passed on! This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! He's expired and gone to meet his maker! He's a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed him to the perch he'd be pushing up the daisies! His metabolic processes are now history! He's off the twig! He's kicked the bucket, he's shuffled off his mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleeding choir invisible! THIS IS AN EX-PARROT!

Het Mechelse Marche Funèbre is één van de grote namen in de Belgische doomscene. En eerlijk gezegd begrijp ik nog steeds niet goed waarom. Zeker, het is niet slecht en bij momenten zelfs echt goed te noemen, maar zelfs op dit vierde full album blijft het een beetje knullig klinken, als een tienerbandje dat experimenteert met brugjes om twee echoënde doom noten aan elkaar te lijmen maar niet goed weet hoe en het daarom maar heel basaal ho...

Einderlicht est le quatrième album de Marche Funèbre, quintet belge actif depuis 2008 et classé dans la catégorie eclectic doom death / black metal. Avec une telle étiquette, difficile de dire à quoi s’attendre de ces 6 titres pour presque une heure d’écoute. Toutefois le thème de l’album est « l’étrange capacité de l’humanité à consciemment commettre un suicide collectif », une bonne écoute automnale donc...

Marche Funèbre always seem to be evolving with every album they crank out. Still rooted firmly in the death/doom territory on their fourth full length album, this Belgium based group step away from the dark, harsh atmosphere heard on their previous album “Into The Arms Of Darkness” and go more for the gothic doom route on “Einderlicht” hinted with bits of death doom, but the overall feeling is more melancholic than dark and crus...

Quarto full-length per la compagine belga Marche Funèbre che nei suoi dieci anni di attività circa ha saputo ritagliarsi un posticino all'interno del vasto e variegato panorama doom death europeo nel quale militano imponenti nomi di spicco del genere. Ascoltando le sei tracce corpose in termini di minutaggio che compongono questo 'Einderlicht' risultano massicce le influenze che il quintetto trae da band seminali come i My Dying Bride ...

This is the fourth album from Belgian death/doom metallers Marche Funèbre.

Having been a fan of Eye of Solitude for some time, their split with Marche Funèbre impressed, and made me want to check out the latter band when the opportunity arose. That time is now, and Einderlicht has arrived to carve a space in my collection all of its own.

When the press blurb states that this music is for fans of “My Dying Bride, Saturnus, Swallow ...

Depuis la fin de la décennie 2000, ce quintette originaire d’Anvers se plaît à pratiquer un Doom Death Metal, certes ancré dans la tradition, mais susceptible d’adopter une posture plus ouverte et évolutive. C’est ainsi qu’en 2017, le troisième album du groupe, « Into The Arms of Darkness », combinait efficacement les fondamentaux du Doom et du Death, avec de surcroît des saveurs Black Metal, notamment dans les vocaux.

Il quarto album della formazione belga Marche Funèbre arriva come una gelida fiamma maligna ad oscurare la stagione autunnale in arrivo, periodo dell’anno che si confà perfettamente alle atmosfere plumbee e cupe di Einderlicht, che fin dalle prime battute si classifica senza troppi dubbi come il disco più ambizioso e interessante della band.
I belgi propongono fin dal 2009 uno stile ibrido che ha le sue radici nel black e nel death me...

Wanneer de herfst zijn intrede doet en de dagen korter worden, brengt onze Belgische doom/death metaltrots Marche Funèbre zijn vierde studioalbum ‘Einderlicht’ uit. Zes songs geschreven tussen 2016 en 2019 zullen de van oudsher melancholieke gevoelens die met dit seizoen gepaard gaan, nog versterken.

Na het bijzonder sterke ‘In The Arms Of Darkness’ nam de band geen risico’s en toog wederom naar de Klangschmiede Studio E. om...

A funeral dirge for the dying light.

The true test of any artist is patience, specifically the ability to take one’s time in honing an idea until it fully matures. Though this standard could apply to any sub-genre of music, it is particularly applicable to the several subsets within the doom metal realm, where the moving parts within a song tend to be fewer and more heavily exposed. Wherein the hybrid style of death/doom is conce...

Twee voorsmaakjes hadden de heren van Marche Funèbre al gelost, in de vorm van één lyric video voor het nummer When All Is Said en een knappe clip voor het machtige The Maelstrom Mute. Die laatste werd geschoten in hun thuisstad Mechelen voor een lokaal online festival.

Deze twee nummers, respectievelijk het langste en kortste van de plaat, lijken op het eerste gehoor los van elkaar te staan. Maar schijn bedriegt. Net als de ande...

De herfst is aangebroken en we duiken de donkere periode van het jaar in. Ideaal om een album van de Mechelse doommetalband Marche Funèbre voor te stellen. Einderlicht is al het vierde album sinds het ontstaan van de band in 2008. En Einderlicht mag dan wel dood en zelfmoord als rode draad doorheen het album hebben, toch klinken niet alle tracks zwartgallig. Bij sommige nummers zit er zelf een refrein in die zowaar in je hoofd blijft h...

Things must be pretty grim in Belgium. The small nation known primarily for it's chocolate and a certain mustachioed detective has spent the last few years pumping out quality Doom Metal (Amenra, Thurisaz as well as newcomers Voidian) as if it's very waffles depended on it. So it'll be interesting to see how Einderlicht the 4th album from Marche Funebre stacks up against the crowd. Straight off the bat the band are following t...

Avec Einderlicht, son quatrième effort, la formation belge Marche Funèbre ne cache nullement son jeu : il faut bel et bien s'attendre à un épais nuage de désespoir, de chagrin et d'amertume dans les six longs titres de cet opus éclectique aux tonalités death-doom metal et à la thématique bien sombre... à déconseiller peut-être aux âmes les plus fragiles, mais idéal pour satisfaire, par sa diversité et sa puissance, ...

Belgium-based melodic death/doom metal quintet Marche Funèbre have generally stuck to their guns throughout their (so far) twelve year run though it was ‘In the Arms of Darkness’ (2017) that found them meeting the higher standard of the niche without having to experiment too far outside the box. At the time it’d been vocalist Arne Vandenhoeck‘s time to really shine in terms of presenting both harsh and melodic vocals with s...

MARCHE FUNEBRE is a doom metal band from Belgium, formed in 2008.  “Einderlicht,” is their fourth full length album; they have also released two splits and two EPs.  I discovered this band just weeks before getting the “Einderlicht” promo and have been listening to both this album and the previous album “Into The Arms of Darkness,” nonstop.  What impresses me the most is how insanely well crafted their songs are, includin...

Last van levenslust? Die verdrijf je zo met het vierde album van Marche Funèbre. Einderlicht is gemakkelijk het zwaarmoedigste dat de Mechelse doomformatie de mensheid heeft aangedaan. Alleen al het centrale thema is genoeg om je goed humeur in de schoenen te voelen zakken: zelfmoord. Want wat je zelf doet, doe je meestal beter.

Beter dan met een ijl en fragiel pingelspel, dat langzaam aanzwelt met akoestische ritmegitaar, rustige za...

Belgian romantics, Marche Funèbre, conjure an operatic image of longing, grief, and loss of hope in the modern age

    Isn't it so nice when a band's name accurately reflects the sound of their music? For all those who have trouble using Google translate (or can't make sense of English cognates in foreign languages), Marche Funèbre is French for "funeral march" or "funeral parade".
