usversusthem94 One of my all time favorite releases. Perfect blackened sludge. Record is flawless and deserves the front-to-back listen.

XuL//Excelsi Dis die week vir die vuil haat hierdie.

Coffinworm laat "normale" metal-mense reageer soos wat normale mense reageer vir normale metal, jy kop?

'od maar dis lelik. En swaar soos planetêre botsings. Nog 'n ou gunsteling uiteindelik aangeskaf. 2014 was die jaar van die aambyl. --L.D Favorite track: Black Tears.

argylesock5 Do you think metal sounds hateful? No, only Coffinworm. This album makes every other band sound like they're spearheaded by an edgy, spoiled child. This, on the other hand, sounds like chewing on rusty nails, falling into a dumpster full of glass, bleeding out on an anniversary. This album is bitter in every respect and if that sounds like your tea, then this is the album for you. Severely scorched and blackened doom, without fail. Favorite track: Lust vs. Vengeance.

Indianapolis, Indiana notorious blackened doom metal abomination COFFINWORM have made quite a reputation upon their emergence in the underground in 2009 with their “Great Bringer Of Night” demo and then would unleash their 2010 debut LP “When All Became None” which would make a huge impression amongst blackened doom/sludge metal circles which would coincide with the band’s devastating live shows (which included a run at SXSW upon the album’s release) in which the band kept quite active on the live circuit (which also included an appearance at The Power Of The Riff’s East Coast event) consistently during the course of “When All Became None’s” discourse.

Four years after the release of “When All Became None”, COFFINWORM return with an album that not only levels its predecessor, but an album in which producer/engineer Sanford Parker (Corrections House, Twilight, Yakuza, Wovenhand, Lord Mantis etc.) claims as one of the most insane and craziest album’s he’s ever recorded and been a part of. “IV.I.VIII” is an album much more complex, lacerating, introverted, and ultimately devastating than anything the band has ever done previously. Six tracks of pure blackened unholy doom metal terror that will once again serve as the soundtrack to the inevitable dark era that will ultimately befall upon the feeble mortal coil.


released March 18, 2014

Produced, recorded, and mixed by Sanford Parker.
