FUNERALISTIC is the second full lenght of this hip-pop duet from bologna, italy. Following the path started with EVOLVOTRON, this new album has the same dark tints with some evolutions: all the samples, while still deconstructed and built anew by the skillful hands of Rico Gamondi (UOCHI TOKI), are somehow more orchestrated: strings, flutes, brasses, piano, arabesque or mystic tunes weirdly mix with power electronics, dubstep and drum ‘n bass hints, all layering heavy and thick on a sheet of lyrics dealing with death (from the very moment before exhaling the last breath to the burial), expressed through extremely pop, obsessive and ritual-esque choruses struggling with harsh, raging and fast verses. This album is incredibly intense, deep and sincere, but not really easy at first contact: it will require you some listenings to absorb it, but it will definitely be worth the time spent.
