Toilet Ov Hell: From the ritualistic tom-tumbling crescendo introduction onwards, Archaic Tomb set the tone perfectly for what is to follow; 25 minutes of malevolent mid-tempo death metal that doesn’t try to fool you with flashy fills or excessive theatrics, just solid riff after solid fucking riff.

Imprecation...Malignant Altar....Frozen Soul...I'm not sure what kind of sick ancient OSDM portal is being accessed in Texas these days, but these bands are killing it. Best EP I've heard since Spectral Voice's Necrotic Doom. Jay Lane

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.
