Coffin Rot - A Monument To The Dead LP
COFFIN ROT (Oregon, USA) - A Monument To The Dead (2019) 2nd Pressing on Black vinyl; includes double-sided insert w/lyrics and download code - limited to 150 copies. Rotted Life Records, in conspiracy with Blood Harvest Records, is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Portland, Oregon's COFFIN ROT, "A Monument To The Dead," on vinyl LP format.
Formed in 2017, COFFIN ROT quickly set to work on their first demo, following it a year later with another one as well as a split with comrades Molder. Wasting no time, now comes their full-length debut, A Monument To The Dead, displaying their swift mastery of the Metal of Death.
Aptly titled, A Monument To The Dead is a timeless and trend-free synthesis of various eternal strains of Death Metal: Grave's proud 'n' powerful surge, Obituary’s no-frills crush, the urgent depravity of early Cannibal Corpse, and a whole host of other equally stout influences. However, it's the manner in which COFFIN ROT are able to rearrange these parameters into something horrific and, above all, immediately memorable: while by no means sticking to predictable verse/chorus rock-music structures.
A Monument To The Dead retains an infectious catchiness whilst remaining resolutely and utterly dark and deathly. Adding to the album's potency is a clear-yet-crushing production that's the epitome of powerful - and one which is richly analog, ably highlighting COFFIN ROT's very human (and very literal) execution.
