Review Summary: The death of a million dooms.

2 of 4 thought this review was well written

Believe me when I say Coffins will put you in a coffin. You think it's all fun and games until you put on your headphones with your tough guy attitude and soon after get the Land of the Rising Sun shoved up your ass. Many a man has taken bands with ***ty names like Anaal Nathrak and Matchbox 20 and tossed them to the wind. Don't make the same mistake with this band brother.

Coffins' sound can best be likened to that of an overly simplified Corrupted with more death and less doom. I say simplified because they don’t go for all that atmospheric, feedback-induced yibber-yabber like those Corrupted guys. No acoustics, no ambiance; just bareback, chord-crushing madness. Waves of power chords and dick-punching riffs destroy you with the force of a 60 ft. tsunami (RIP). This force is amplified by the plodding, foreboding tempos set by drummer You (that’s his ***ing name), while the guitars are kept satisfyingly crunchy and thick. The pace is quickened occasionally with the breaking out of stoner-like grooves, giving respite from possible monotony.

Following a very basic doom template, don’t expect a great deal of diversity or variance. You won’t find it. What you will find is a band delivering the goods in a package of solid death/doom that is neither offensive nor overly-ambitious.

This album's decent, but it's probably their weakest. Might want to check out the others.
