Vancouver, British Columbia has a new offensive in the form of ENCOFFINATE, a death and doom (or doom and death) quartet that painstakingly elaborates their nightmarish and infernal visions into dark and devastating dirges. Unlike most of their peers in this subgenre, Encoffinate's dense aura and somber evocations radiates fury and inner struggles. At times, a clear influence of Celtic Frost becomes evident, like is the case on "Black Skies of Terror". This first offering contains four tracks of utter doom and death, or death and doom.
Cimmerian Corpse Dungeon will be released on cassette on February 21st, 2019.
supported by 30 fans who also own “Cimmerian Corpse Dungeon”
Chambers comes on and in the first couple of minutes, I had to stop dead in my living room and sit my ass down. The drum sound was THAT immediate. Encoffinized drops the hammer and gets the hell outta town for an LP. While there may not be tons of trailblazing about this release, but I have to put plant a flag in the ground here and say that this kind of "sound" takes vision, personality, and dedication.

A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
