In general there's no surprise that in Venezuela has good extreme-metal bands - the situation within the country and in the world often urges musicians around the earth on severe playing guitar in one's basement, showing a middle finger to society, globalization or something else.
So Funebria decided to do what in their opinion will bring fame to their mother-Venezuela abroad. This release marks the 10th anniversary of the band - but in fact it is only the second studio album, so the band has a bright future. «Dekatherion» represents 40 minutes of quite interesting black/death metal at high speeds with drive and demonic rage. I must say that the guys aren't very similar to the canonical Behemoth, but rather more diverse like Hate or to some extent Swedes Witchery in their black-and-roll style. Despite obvious brutality and in some cases even sturdiness of Funebria, their music was born as an attempt to blacken and to add thrash elements to death-metal basis, but the ratio has turned out uneven and unstable - in some cases it's especially noticeable. I.e. we have not  just a "raw meat", but even something more interesting, thoughtful and somewhat varied. And about the vocals - frontman Seth aum Xul's evil screaming can be compared with Dani Filth's, but without outright pornography. Together with the melody and some vigorous material the album eventually turns out to be very and very vivid (What? Brutal Latin Americans with corpse-paint have drive? Wow!). This fact has a positive effect on the material, which is mostly straightforward and full of stereotypes, albeit not in the worst sense. And in fact it's just good. This gives the album an opportunity to leave at least some trace in your brain as well as makes it somehow catchy. Release definitely has a caustic demonic atmosphere of black metal of the '90s as well as the one of '80s thrashers, which is good for listening with normal sound and good energy. To cut it short it's recommended to everyone, especially fans of the strange and underground   sound with spanking toms, and fans of Hate,    Witchery, early Cradle Of Filth, etc.
