MY FUNERAL is a four piece crossover thrash metal outfit from Helsinki, although originally from Jyväskylä, Finland. My Funeral represents the new, more extreme, wave of thrash metal, where old school thrash elements blend with crossover, hardcore and groove metal. My Funeral has released three full-length albums, two EP’s and toured Finland and Europe extensively.
In 2019 My Funeral reached the finals of the Finnish band contest ”Tuska-Torstai”, and received rave reviews from thrash legends Janne Joutsenniemi (Stone, Suburban Tribe), Janne Hyrkäs (Mokoma) as well as Laura Vähähyyppä, program host at the Finnish radio channel ”Radio Rock” and Tuska Metal Festival organizer Jouni Markkanen.
Last May My Funeral entered the studio and recorded their new EP, named ”Graveblaster”. Graveblaster represents My Funeral’s new sound, with dark, heavy riffs and crushing, versatile sounds. Thematically the EP deals with secluded paths in life and darker sides of the mind, taking influence from bands such as Hatebreed, Pantera and Motörhead.
