Is it sludge with death metal influences, or death metal with sludge inflluences? With Coffins it’s never quite as simple as that. The Japanese punishers’ successful blurring of borders and standards enabled them to slot seamlessly into a ten day American tour with crusty death troupe Stormcrow last year, ending in a blistering set at LA’s Murderfest. Watching eachother’s bands destroy each night has evidently rubbed off on them, leading to the alliance of this new split 12″. The Lovecraft inspired artwork was etched by Digestor (Sean McGrath) of gore-obsessed thrashers, Ghoul.
The re-recording of Slaughter of Gods for the Coffins side is up on myspace.
