Begräbnis arose in 2011 from the city of trees: Sendai. Through their ominously haunted and dismal hymns, the Japanese entity precisely embodies funeral: what the German word “Begräbnis” stands for. Started as a four-piece doom ensemble, they, as a trio, had begun to rely on drum machines, theremins, and appalling ambient/industrial elements since the drummer’s departure in 2012.

Begräbnis’ discography contains two demos and two split EPs: with Australian experimental doom band Estrangement in 2014 and Danish ambient SOL in 2016; both got released via Weird Truth Productions. In 2017, they participated in the compilation album »Eastern Ghost Story Vol.1« released by Psychedelic Lotus Order / GoatowaRex.

With their debut full-length »Izanaena«, Begräbnis is ready to deliver solemn requiem for the doomed ones. This album sees the troupe landing in a funeral doom territory, escorted by eldritch, anguished growls, dire melodies, and dead invoking slow riffs. This opus, however, did not escape from Begräbnis’ droned-out minimal and ambient influences.
