Mankind is Carrion, Fit for Nothing is the new EP from doom/sludge band, No Funeral. It was released on December 30th 2017 via Live Fast Die Recordings. We’ve covered No Funeral before when we reviewed their split release with Livid in August ’17. You can read our thoughts on that excellent album here.
It’s no surprise that this EP is all about delivering a nasty visceral type of doom, like a wound that has a layer of crusted blood & mud covering it. Carrion’s disgusted sound is one of a band sick of everything wrong with the world. The slow eventually gives way to a faster, more riffy tune one that breathes life into the track.
The whine of feedback gives you a brief bit of time to recover before Hyperalgesia takes things down to even deeper & darker depths. Here the vocals become even more hate-fuelled while the sludgy riffs get the head well & truly banging.
An impressive offering.
