Reviews for The Funeral Cortege:
"After years of touring and also serving as a member of Argyle Goolsby‘s Roving Midnight band, Windhawk has released the concluding chapter of his ‘Funerary Trilogy’ which began with the "Casket Spray" EP and continued with the 2016 release of "Cremation Garden". "The Funeral Cortege", is not only the closing chapter to the trilogy, but an example of the growth and confidence that Windhawk has amassed over the years." - Kyle Scharf, deadhouse.net (Canada)
"What instantly comes to mind when the first song "Broken Signals" starts, is how much atmosphere this band can create in the songs, the darkness through the album being almost physical - you can almost touch it and feel it..."Wendigo" closes the album with a feeling of coming out alive from a dark, dangerous, but at the same time beautiful place." - Davor Krajcer-Vitez, Kraykulla Webzine (Croatia)
