Pedigree - Funeral Child
Release Date: December 13, 2020
Label: selfrelease
Format: CD / Digital
Length: 49:33
Genre: Post Metal / Industrial
Origin: Estonia

Estonian band Pedigree has been around for quite some time. Since at least the year 2000 the quartet has constantly provided us with musicked darkness and extravagant compositions. The reason, this band has not caught my attention yet, might be because music from Estonia does not have a great lobby in Central and Western Europe. I hope that will change.

On their newest work, Pedigree create claustrophobic, metallic and dark soundscapes that can predominantly defined as a mix of Post Metal, Alternative Metal and Industrial. Synthetic layers of noise create whole atmospheric patterns of cold and desparation. Around these layers, halting Post Metal and dark Alternative Metal produce an air of gloomy reflections. The lyrics are shouted, sung in choirs, whispered, and almost support the claustrophobia of the soundscape.

Pedigree bring Post Metal to a new level with their newest album. "Funeral Child" is a great album for the next dungeon party.
