Posted by Nick Skog on Friday, June 5, 2020, In : Marche Funèbre 
The Belgian quintet Marche Funèbre will be releasing their fourth full-length album “Einderlicht” (which translates as the light at/of the end) this fall. The new album brings all the elements known from Marche Funèbre: death, black, and doom metal in a unique mix, with strong melodies and a wide vocal approach.



Thematically, “Einderlicht” focuses on the strange ability of mankind to deliberately decide to end one’s life.

Never change a winning team as they say, so the new album was...
