Stream: Coffins – “The Vacant Pale Vessel”
2008's Buried Death, the third full-length from Japanese band Coffins was a masterpiece of dirty, raw, heavy doom. Now after a 5-year wait and a zillion splits/EPs, the band is set to release their follow-up, The Fleshland on July 9 in North America. Preorder yours.
They're now a four-piece with the addition of a new drummer and new vocalist. And they're now on Relapse, so yes, things have changed. But their manner of slowing down and brutalizing the best parts of Celtic Frost and Bathory remains the same.
Nine songs, including "The Vacant Pale Vessel" streaming below, clock in at more than 45 minutes. Watch a brief album trailer and listen below, but prepare to be punished.
