COFFIN TEXTS
COFFIN TEXTS
Gods Of Creation, Death & Afterlife
(Dwell Records)
38:11min

Hey, I thought Dwell Records is specialized in tribute albums exclusively but they've already signed two very cool bands THE CHASM from Mexico and COFFIN TEXTS. This East L.A. based Death Metal horde really impressed me with this potent debut album. COFFIN TEXTS delivers fuckin' strong Death Metal the way it was meant to be. No wimpy influences, no trend following, nothing but pure unholy Death Metal. They play a similar style like their brothers from INFAMY. I would describe it as old-school Death Metal in the vein of old RIGOR MORTIS / IMMOLATION and old UNLEASHED stuff. "Gods Of Creation, Death & Afterlife" is a very powerful and heavy album with a good production. The songs are mainly mid paced but there are also lots of fast and brutal eruptions. Bobby, the vocalist, sounds like a possessed demon, very eerie and brutal. This album has a very dark and obscure atmosphere but it's still powerful and brutal. Check out the fifth song on this CD 'The Grand Gallery' with its mighty and devastating riff and you will understand what I mean. I'm very glad that I had the opportunity to be at a COFFIN TEXTS show and I can tell you that this power trio is the pure hell on stage. The last two songs on "Gods Of Creation, Death & Afterlife" are not written by COFFIN TEXTS, they are adoptions from SLAYER's 'Crypt Of Eternity' and BLACK SABBATH's 'Disturbing The Priest'. Both versions are well done and especially the SLAYER song kicks major ass. But their own compositions are definitely strong enough so this two tracks are a nice bonus, nothing more. "Gods Of Creation, Death & Afterlife" is one of my personal highlights in the year 2000. Keep an eye on this promising band, we will hear from them in the future...
