It’s been exactly one year since Funeral For A Friend released their worse album to date Conduit, January 28th, 2013. The guys have stated via Twitter they’re hitting the studio to work on their new record.
If their latest effort sounds anything like Conduit, they’re in trouble. It wasn’t a complete piece of shit, but it wasn’t great either. The heavier style just doesn’t suit front-man Matt Davies-Kreye’s voice any more and it shows.
Who knows, maybe their next album will be a return to form, but it seems Funeral For A Friend are hellbent on the heavier sound for the moment. Maybe we’ll get a nu-metal record next, seems like everyone else is release one.
