History

Formed in 1993 and immersed in Satanism, the first two albums are black metal pieces, while the third album saw founder Ford change directions and head into the realm of drug-induced electronic noise psychedelia. Members have come and gone. The band’s early demo was called Journeys Into Horizons Lost. With Full Moon biting the dust the group switched over to Behemoth Productions of Italy.

Azgorh Drakenhof joined in 2015 and picked up most instruments. The gang had a mini-album called The Dust And Darkness through Iron Bonehead in 2018. It was recorded in Australia and the United States in 2017.

Michael W. Ford is the author of several books on esoteric subjects. This band has two piano players.

Reviews

BLACK FUNERAL - MOON OF CHARACITH - FULL MOON
I hope Full Moon Productions doesn't turn into an Adipocere or Witchhunt Records. On the one hand it can only be bad for the label: no one buys into this 'atmospheric' wimpdom. On the other hand, we the fans can be deprived of more metal music. I much rather hear violent, meaningful black metal than little boys and girls fulfilling their church fantasy. Such is the case here: two suitably vampiric-looking flunkies (massively tripping on cheap drugs) give their creation names like avant guard (sic), Electronic Voice Phenomena (ha ha), Trapezoid (ha ha ha) and similar fashionable names and proceed to rationalize how an extreme black metal combo can turn into a lame new age unit whose CD will shortly be sold in the Sunday flea market by the kilogram. This whole affair sounds like a number of droids are conducting synchronized dancing. Come to think of it Misanthropy Records just found some excuse to close shop too... I hope FMP read this review twice for this is like a neutron bomb: it causes a lot of human suffering, but next to zero material damage. - Ali "The Metallian"
