Reviews for "The Funeral Cortège":
"With the power of his unique sound and voice, and samples from a litany of classic and modern Horror, Shadow Windhawk proves once again why he can easily be considered a current heavyweight of the genre." - HorrorHound Magazine, October 2018.
"...Windhawk has so much to offer the Horror music scene as he continues to push boundaries in amalgamating the Punk and Gothic sides of his previous two outings; if you enjoyed those you'll absolutely love this emotive and poignant album." - Lucas Chapel, Devolution Magazine (UK), October 2018.
"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), Sept. 2018
"We've previously said that Shadow Windhawk has some of the most distinctive vocals in Horror Punk and this is backed up here on 'Funeral Cortege', as his looming baritone voice excellently compliments the heavy death punk guitars and drums." - Lucas Chapel, Devolution Magazine (UK), October 2018
"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), Sept. 2018
