You’d be forgiven for thinking that Funeral for a Friend were thinking about winding down after the line-up changes of recent years and the release of 2009’s best-of set, Your History Is Mine. But Welcome Home Armageddon proves quite the opposite. Both this disc and its predecessor, 2008’s Memory and Humanity, seem to have acted as MOTs for the band. While the first cracks to appear were quickly painted over, the departure of guitarist Darran Smith has been pointedly slow and deliberate. Today, the band sounds all the better for addressing their problems, having resolved them brilliantly.
