Based in Brussels, FVNERALS are a band that exist on the fringes of doom, post-rock, shoegaze and dark ambience. Formed in 2013 in the south coast town of Brighton, FVNERALS have since released two EPs (The Hours and The Path) and their highly moving, and haunting debut LP The Light. After touring the UK and Europe the band regrouped this year to record their second album, "Wounds". "Wounds" represents a less dreamy and more straight forward approach to FVNERALS’ music.
While the songwriting has moved to a harsher and bleaker sound, it also attempts to retain its emotional heaviness, fragility and contrast. While it is certainly a progression from their debut album, Wounds perfects the crushing doom of their previous work. More than ever, bassist / vocalist Tiffany Strom’s voice is on full display as it evokes a unique poignancy that drives the band through seven emotionally devastating tracks.

“From sparse melody to predatory density, FVNERALS touches upon many key elements of doom metal and even shoegaze at times without ever yielding control of the atmosphere...”
“‘Wounds’, is a harrowing trip into a barren wasteland of despair. ”
“Sadness has never been more beguiling and the journey FVNERALS are on rewards your mettle while it breaks down your defences.”
