New album from the Dutch project Funus…..!!!

On February 25, 2023, the new and second full-length album from the Dutch project Funus will be released, called ‘Mono’.

Their song “Never Heard” can be heard here.

Funus is a creative music project of Ruben Vermeulen, formed in 2006 (The Netherlands). Initially its genre was defined as Black Metal. Ruben collaborated with several musicians to perform Funus’ music on stage. With different line ups the band had a lot of gigs during the period of 2009-2011.

Funus’ first published work is the independently released promotion EP “Funus” (2009). In 2011 the test recording “Rosefield Road” was spread as promotion material.

In 2012 Ruben wanted to focus on writing album ‘Adrift Alone’ and create something different: A concept album about the five stages of loss and grief bij psychologist E. Kübler-Ross. This album experiments with a fusion of Black Metal, Doom Metal and acoustic guitars. This album is released in 2016. Throughout Europe it received excellent reviews from e-zines. The test recording of ‘Rosefield Road’ got its definitive version on this album.

After a break, Funus is back. Inspired by introspection – thoughts and feelings about ourselves – a brand new full length concept album is coming up. With clean singing, soft acoustic guitar playing, beautiful atmospheric soundscapes and a touch of Black Metal, Funus is ready to share upcoming album ‘MONO’ with the world.
