Review by: Justyn Brodsky
With haunting rhythms, atmospheric narratives and a cinematic eeriness that brings electronic music to darker realms, Nokturnal Funeral puts the perfect industrial spin on today’s EDM sensibility with the latest album Creatures Of The Night.
Conceptually, every track is its own creature in and of itself. It delves into the darkness of places our minds never go, and leaves us with a feeling of losing ourselves in the moment and giving into our most primal urges – whether we expect to or not. And that’s what makes this album so brilliant, it brings us to places we’d never go on our own. Both musically and visually.
Each track has composed production value, but has a surprise around every corner that grabs us by the throat and refuses to let go. It’s an anthemic album that is worthy of video game soundtracks and today’s modern thriller films. It has that atmosphere that really holds the power to enhance even the most semi-visceral visuals, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Nokturnal Funeral got picked up for some work in film scores.
Each song delivers a new realm of dark moods and emotions that takes us for more than just a mild rollercoaster. These tracks are climactic and cliffhanging, and have a relentless way of keeping us at the edge of our seats – whether we strapped in for the ride or not. Regardless, the strength is unwavering but not overpowering. Which is the perfect medium that sits between 90s industrial artists like Aphex Twin and Nine Inch Nails, and today’s more mainstream EDM circuit that has hit the industry like electric shock in the last decade.
Either way, Nokturnal Funeral fits right in with the climb of electronic music and just might be the new anchor to EDM’s darkest pleasures. And you won’t hesitate to indulge.
