Check out The Wayward and the Lost and let their morbid melodies be the soundtrack to your extinction.
Funeral doom, despite all the negative undertones the name may carry, is experimental heavy metal. This music, created in opposition of metal’s traditional forms, focuses more on sound and atmosphere than lyrical substance.
Beneath Oblivion is from Cincinnati, Ohio. Active since 2003, The Wayward and the Lost is the band’s third full length studio effort.
A five-song offering with nearly every track going over the ten-minute mark, this is a death rattle with spooky funeral chants. The album is a sick exploration of human addiction. The negative energy rising to the forefront of a hopeless, grief-stricken world. Highlight tracks for me are: “The City, A Mausoleum (My Tomb)”, “The Wayward and the Lost” and “Satyr”.
Beneath Oblivion are:
- Allen Lee Scott II – Guitars, Samples, Keyboards
- James Rose – Drums, Vocals
- Keith Messerle – Bass
- Scott Simpson – Guitars, Vocals
