'Great Bringer Of Night'


This demo from this newly formed Indianapolis quintet smacks of heavy, decomposition-paced, blackened sludge, but Coffinworm smatter the tracks with deliberate up-tempo shifts and subtly bludgeoning grooves. Raw, grave dirt-choked vocals growl contempt over adipocere-inducing volume offering a promising precursor to their projected full-length. [8/10] John Mincemoyer

Coffinworm - Great Bringer Of Night

We expect there are still plenty of heads out there who actually buy records. An ipod is no substitute for a record on a turntable or holding that record (or a CD) in your hands. If you like what you hear, consider buying a physical copy of our demo (info here).

review from 'cerebral metalhead'

You don't find metal this sludgy outside of New Orleans. Except in Indiana, where the fearsome fivesome Coffinworm shit out tar-thick doom even viler than Eyehategod's. Gates of Slumber drummer Bob Fouts was behind the boards on this three-track demo, and the tones he captured sound like mics were placed directly into the Indianapolis sewage system -- every sputum rivulet and feedback-drenched chug rubs the ears the wrong way, which is to say the exact right way. On "High on the Reek of Your Burning Remains," Coffinworm set queasy treble guitar skree, drawn from the haunting arpeggios of Norwegian black metal, against swinging doom riffs. It's a truly ominous, hateful effect. Coffinworm are set to record their first full-length with Sanford Parker (Minsk/Nachtmystium/Indian). It'll come out next year via Profound Lore, which sets the label's awesome band percentage at a healthy 100%.

review from 'the cracked skull'

The Cracked Skull is not another online music review site, but Coffinworm's (Indianapolis, Indiana) demo, 'Great Bringer of Night', is just the kind of homegrown demo worth tracking down and listening to repeatedly at a suitable volume hoping for brown note bliss. The various molten hammers being poured through the speakers of your stereo will reaffirm what metal is all about. 'Great Bringer of Night' is heavy in all the right ways: guitars tuned to the depths of the Mariana Trench, gravel throat blaspheming, subversive bass growls, and war drums. Slow, mid tempo, deft time signature changes, and some well placed feedback adds to the churning of this demo. Basically, if the listener's face is suddenly pulverized into dust against the nearest hard surface while listening to this, then the goal of this demo would seemingly be achieved. Recorded at the aptly named Basement Rage Studio in Indianapolis by Bob Fouts, Coffinworm has managed to capture what lies in the blackened hearts and deep recesses of the minds of those whom don't shy away from the dark and shadows. Instead of having one song that sticks out, 'Great Bringer of Night' is best approached in terms of movements. Each song break signaling the next step, the next push into the ground to ultimately end up as a feast for the creeping things that live on the south side of terra firma. This is quite the initial outing for Coffinworm as their debut full length should be out in '10 on Profound Lore Records. Until then, one fist raised and excessive head nodding will suffice while spinning this disk at top volume.

For information on buying Coffinworm's 'Great Bringer of Night' and other merchandise head to their Myspace page, and catch them at their next show. They won't disappoint.

review in decibel no. 59 (sept. 2009)

Coffinworm Great Bringer of Night
Indianapolis' Coffinworm are an unholy combination of Deathspell Omega (evil high-end dissonance) and Eyehategod (don't-give-a -fuck bludgeoning). A blackened Unearthly Trance, perhaps? Bob Fouts of Gates of Slumber did the recording, and it kills. Guitars assault in swarms, while bass flows like lava. This is heavy; this is metal. - Cosmo Lee
