Funebrarum re-emerges from the darkest depths to unleash their offering of morbid and heavy Death Metal. Still dedicated to the late 80’s / early 90’s underground Death Metal scene, the initial drive and motivation for the band remains, DEATH METAL – the old way!! The band was formed in 1999 in Clifton, New Jersey by vocalist Daryl Kahan and guitarist Nick Orlando, along with drummer Dario Derna (Infester). This original line-up recorded their first demo cassette entitled Triumphant Ascent, released in 2000, a tape that was well received worldwide. Joined shortly thereafter by bassist David Wagner and drummer Brian Jimenez, they recorded their debut full-length album entitled Beneath The Columns of Abandoned Gods, recorded in 2000 and released in 2001. This record cemented the band’s reputation as a force to be reckoned with. During this period the band played many brutal and intense shows in the NY/ NJ area with bands such as Mortician, Evoken, Crucifier, Nunslaughter, Mayhem, Dead Infection among many others. A 7 EP entitled Dormant Hallucinationwas released in 2003, a split CD / LP with Sweden’s Interment in 2007 and a second full-length album entitled The Sleep of Morbid Dreams was released in 2009. With the Morbid Dreams line-up including Alex Books (Goreaphobia / Immolation) the band embarked on a successful tour of Europe with Denmark’s Undergang in 2012. After an extensive period of inactivity, several members departed the band to focus on their careers, families or other musical projects. In 2015, Daryl chose to reform the band with new blood including guitarist Samuel Osborne, drummer Charlie Koryn (Ascended Dead), bassist Kyle Winslow and guitarist Yuri Kahan (no relation). With this line-up the band wrote and recorded four songs over three days (including three new songs and one re-recorded old demo song). This demo recording entitled Exhumation of the Ancient Dead was released in 2016 on CD / LP on (Doomentia / Morbid Wrath Records) and was sold on the band’s European tour with Interment (Sweden) 2016. The following year, 2017, Funebrarum embarked on another successful European tour with Denmark’s Phrenelith. Over the years, Funebrarum has performed at many festivals around the world including Maryland Deathfest, Netherlands DeathFest (NL), Kill-Town DeathFest (DK), Finnish Death Metal Maniacs Festival (FI), EarSlaughter Festival (CA) among others. With the 2018 addition of lead guitarist Phil Tougas (Chthe’ilist) the band has been working on new material for their upcoming third full-length album, coming in Mid 2019 on Singapore’s Pulverised Records.
