FUNERAL ORATION was a melodic Hardcore, Punk band from Amsterdam, The Netherlands. They were active from 1983 till the end of the Nineties, putting out highly influental records on dutch, german, british and american labels. They managed to create their own unique sound, mainly due to the unmistakeable vocal style of their singer.
"The Godsend" was the second demo of the band released in 1984, now it´s pressed as non-official re-release that has no real cover, only cardboard with glued paper sheets on it. Releasing this stuff is principally a good idea but the packaging could be way better.
