This is perfect down tuned sick death metal, and it's Coffins so you know it's fucking slooow at times, but all that slow grinding serves the purpose of wrenching your innards out of your anus, milli, by milli, by millimeter.
Favorite track: Carpet Of Bones.
This is an all new EP of the Japanese Death Metal band Coffins, running for 28 minutes and featuring great cover of the Death/Massacre classic “Corpsegrinder”, mandatory if you call yourself a Death Metal fan!
On this EP Tokyo-Japan’s Coffins are firmly established as the underground’s leading purveyors of Neanderthal paced Doomed Death Metal. Previous albums “The Other Side Of Blasphemy” and “Mortuary In Darkness” and the classic “Buried Death” introduced Coffins’ black tar dirge to an audience eager for slowpressive maniac riffs and songs dragged forth like the arms of a lumbering ape with the impact of a huge bulldozer... no escape!
Derivative and true rather then progressive and new, with an effectiveness unmatched in today’s underground. Immediately
battering the listener with the opening sledgehammer ‘Till Dawn of the Dooms Day’ the album crawls ever forward through the catchiest Coffins tracks ever, like Celtic Frost at 16 RPM narcoplunder of ‘Grotesque Messiah’. The patented brick heavy guitar tone remains and the band has added some additional solos and high vocal screams, hinted at on 2006’s “The Other Side...” album. Rather than toy with forced “evolution” Coffins has instead sharpened and honed its devolved sound further in its primitive singlemindedness, no compromise here!
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
