Funeral Inception - _Anthems of Disenchantment_
(Warpath Records, 2003)
by: Pedro Azevedo (4 out of 10)
If straightforward death metal from Indonesia with really strange sounding drums is your thing, then you should probably go out and buy _Anthems of Disenchantment_ now. This isn't much of a recommendation though, is it? Well, Funeral Inception do not offer the reviewer much else to distinguish them from the death metal hordes. Apart from the drum sound problem, Funeral Inception are so bog-standard it almost hurts. They're not terrible; they're just deeply average. Stereotypical grunts, unremarkable death metal riffs, and varying degrees of odd-sounding blast beats (made worse by the fact that the pace changes are the main thing that can capture your attention) -- that pretty much sums it up. Warpath Records have stayed within strict death metal boundaries with every release so far and put out some rather entertaining albums in the process (case in point: Hypokras' _Dead & Hungry_), but Funeral Inception take that concept a bit too far without adding much that's actually interesting or remarkably well done to the mix. You might still enjoy a few spins of this album if you're sufficiently into this type of death metal and can get over the deeply annoying drums, but even its good bits sound like they have been done before, and better.
