Description

Formed in 1997, this Los Angeles based band has been desecrating the scene for more than a decade. Having toured with bands like INCANTATION, INFAMY, ANGELCORPSE, SKINLESS, and CEPHALIC CARNAGE, and shared members with legendary acts like SADISTIC INTENT, INFAMY, and DIABOLIC, Coffin Texts has proven their right to be heralded among the elite archangels of death metal. These affiliations notwithstanding, COFFIN TEXTS has also been one of the most overlooked bands in Death Metal. This fact is mostly attributable to their short (yet nonetheless important) discographic history. Their debut album, the masterful ‘Gods of Creation, Death & Afterlife’ – originally released by Dwell Records on CD in 2000 – now re-released with much deserved new artwork and design by Tlmnn. This album features 6 tracks of devastating Death Metal darkness shrouded in esoteric references to Egyptian mythology. (The cover songs featured in the Dwell Records version have been discarded in favour of preserving the consistency and sonic purity of the original compositions.) Solid musicianship and crushing production easily places the band on par with monumental and well-established bands as MORBID ANGEL, IMMOLATION, BOLT THROWER, and CARNAGE, and yet the recording still oozes the deathly aura and thirst of a ‘demo band’. New design comes with 12-page booklet. Limited to 500 copies.
