Funeral Horse is one of the best bands to come out of the Texas garage metal scene in recent years. During their lifetime, they’ve become known for their aggressive style, their heavy sound, and surprising twists that show that they’re not afraid to try anything, and somehow make it work. “Psalms for the Mourning” continues this trend, bringing all the aggressive riffs, sound, style, and complexity that people have come to know, while adding some surprising twists. |
