Solitude Productions and the legendary Norwegian doom outfit, Funeral announced this week the release of a new (sort of) Funeral album, titled To Mourn Is A Virtue. The release is the missing link between the band’s 1995 album Tragedies, and 2002’s Fields Of Pestilent Grief. To Mourn Is A Virtue features nine previously un-released demo tracks recorded by the band between 1996 and 2004, and remastered nearly 15 years later. The album, as described by Solitude Productions, may come as a surprise to fans of the band who have listened to them evolve from one of the first funeral doom bands into the death/doom outfit they are today, because To Mourn Is A Virtue plays like a classic doom metal record.
