Biography

(1999 – present)

Funebrarum was formed by guitarist / doom legend, Nick Orlando (Evoken, Putrifact, Asmodeus) and vocalist Daryl Kahan (Disma, Abazagorath guitarist, Citizens Arrest, Assück) in April of 1999 with the goal of creating heavy old school death metal. With fellow Abazagorath and Evoken member, Dario Derna (also of Meat Shits, Infester) joining on drums, the band recorded their debut demo “Triumphant Ascent” later that same year. A raw and ugly sounding tape which received good reviews from the underground maniacs. Soon after Dario left the band(s) to move back to his home in Seattle.

The core line-up was solidified with the addition of Abazagorath bassist David Wagner providing the subatomic low end. This first line-up was finalized with the addition of drummer Brian Jimenez (Eschaton, Kalopsia). After several months of rehearsal and shows the band then entered the studio to record their “Tombs of Sleeping Darkness” demo, which was eventually released as the “Beneath The Columns of Abandoned Gods” album on Necroharmonic Productions.

After the “Tombs of Sleeping Darkness /Beneath…” recording Brian Jimenez left the band to pursue other interests. Nick, Daryl and Dave continued working and writing new material during this period.

In 2003, with session drummer, Justin De Torre they re-recorded material for their next official release, the 7” EP “Dormant Hallucination,” for Midnight 666 Records.

Again Funebrarum received excellent reviews from around the world. Metal Side Zine called the band the “Masters of Old School Death Metal.” The following year “Beneath the Columns of Abandoned Gods” would be re-issued by cult label, Necroharmonic Records.
