Hails, warbrethren. With the Bloomingtonian and Eyehategod campaigns behind us, it is now time to turn earnest attention to stockpiling new riffery for the next album and future endeavors. As such, don't expect to hear nary a peep from us for a few months on the live front, as that shit simply isn't happening. Writing is our main focus, to maximize the frozen tundra that is Indianapolis, and its effects on us in summoning proper invocations.
The Eyehategod show was a HUGE success, and we can't be thankful enough for a chance to open for one of the few bands all Coffinworm members call an influence and legends. We appreciate all for attendance, those who gave praise, those who gave indifference, and all of those that bought shit. Also hails to Goatwhore and our 260 brethren Daisycutter for sharing the bill, as well as to Adam Walker and Jared Southwick for booking the show. Infinite hails to our good friend Mahlon (and congrats on the impending nuptials) for making the trek and sharing some laughs. This was a show we won't ever forget, and definitely in the Drunkenworm top 3.
Conversely, we must praise Wolfey and all of Slam Dunk for the excellent time they showed us in Bloomington, as well as all of the locals who just came out and basically stared at us. SD took care of us, and all was well; but you hipsters who stand their with your fashionable, and brittle, little arms crossed but then gobble up merchandise leave us all confounded. Thanks? Also hails to Charnel House for sharing the bill.
Merch is still available through the usual outlets. Lps are almost extinct, but the Cd lives on in perpetuity via us or Profound Lore. We also have some pretty cool backpatches of the Start Saving... shirt print that are available from us for $6 plus postage, in addition to the logo patches. We will have some new shirt designs in the new year, as well as a slew of live assaults to advertise. Until then, drown in silence.
As usual, thanks to all supporters and warbringers. Haters: please don't type so loud in the basement at night whilst on message boards. We ARE right upstairs after all, and all of that clatter detracts from our perfectly-timed thrusts in your fat mammy's asshole.
And to the local hater who wanted to sign us, but was denied, and wanted to book us, and was denied: your side-ways slander only shows the lack of girth between your legs, and the lack of fortitude of your non-existent thought-process. We're sorry mommy didn't love you. When you're dead no one will miss you, save for our rancid ejaculates decomposing on your headstone.

Flier contains all relevant infos, but in summation our first show with the revamped and here-to-stay lineup is on October 10, in our fair burrough of Naptown. We are incredibly pleased to once again be playing with our good friends Unearthly Trance, extended Bloomingtonian brethren Racebannon, and the mighty Suma, crossing the seas from Scandinavia into our wretched country to lay waste to eardrums. This won't be a night to be missed, so don't fuck around and stay at home jacking off to tranny porn. UT will hopefully have their new full-length V for sale, which is simply fucking crushing, and at the top of their recorded output. Conversely, we will have the usual salvo of Cds, Lps, shirts, and patches available.
Speaking of Lps: Seventh Rule are getting low on their copies of When All Became None on the venerable vinyl format. Seeing as this is a one-time pressing of 514 copies, if you covet one follow the link posted before and get one before they are gone. The Cd will remain in print indefinitely, but the vinyl is a one-shot deal. Our copies will NOT be made available for online sale, so this is no online chicanery: if you want one don't fuck around.
As usual: hails for support. Balls available for hater ingestion, inquire about pricing.

We just got these bad dudes in the mail from our friend Jeffrey Darkness. They will be available until we run out of them at shows, or you can add $2.00 to any order and get one that way. Send an email for patch-only orders, but be quick, we only have 50 of them.
In other news, things are progressing well with the new line-up. You super-scientifical internet sleuth-types might have read that Tony is no longer with us, and that is correct. To rectify this, Carl is now on guitar duties (along with Garrett), and our friend Chubbz (who plays with Dave in Worldeater, and also did the cover art for When All Became None as well as our "tentacles" shirt design) is behind the battery throne of bone. New incantantions are progressing nicely, and all is well within our rank. Expect more updates as they are available to disclose. Until then, thanks as always for your support. Haters, you know the drill: get to dying already.

The Tupacalyptic Raids ultra-mega-mini tour was a success, and your boys from the Midwest have returned safe and in one piece. It was a success, and for that we thank those of you who came out and showed some support, bought something from us, or hoisted a fine ale with us. Hails! With that some thanks are in order:
Overarching thanks: Todd "Shearer Terror" Shearer for being an impeccable friend, roadie, driver, and a penultimate dude. We appreciate it to the utmost, let's do this again! Also thanks to J-Rock for Van-O-War rental.
Philly: thanks to Kim Kelly for the show and her unwavering support. Also thanks to Wizard Eye (Eric: sorry I was about to piss on your car) and the M1 room. Big ups to Andrew and Lisa for the provisions and hospitality, and of course Ella and Nora. Lastly we hail Garrett's soulmate/security guard.
Crooklyn: infinite hails to Jay "The King" Newman and all of Unearthly Trance. You made this show one of the most memorable we've ever played, and we can't thank you enough. Big ups also to Meredith Newman for the incredible hospitality her and Jay showed a bunch of feral dickhead Hoosiers. Archon and Syphilitic Lust also elicit huge hails for sharing the floor with us, and all of you that came out as well. Fred/Brooklyn Vegan: always a pleasure, our man! Thanks to Jr, Brendon, and Ben from Maine in particular. Phil: thanks for not letting Todd and I go burn down half of the city at 6 in the am. For that matter, thanks to Darren for dissuading us from making the trek to The Motherfucking Spot On Lexington. Also big ups to Bonecrusher, because he don't care, he don't give a SHIT about NOTHIN!
Baltimore: thanks to Alex and Adam for making this happen. Also infinite hails to Mike and Marrow (the 7" fucking kills)and Lee and Vulcan. Also thanks to John from DC and the cat in the Fatal shirt for the support and making the trek. Also the bartender from the Talking Head Room is one of the coolest bartenders ever, so thanks for that, and if you drink there tip that dude!
FUCK OFF AND TOSS SALADS IN HELL: The NJ turnpike: Jesus titty-fucking christ, is this really what the state of modern mass transportation has come to? Taglio staff: only one horizontal line is wrong with your sign. Those endless PA hills/mountains: motherfuckers, it takes more than a slope to kill us.
So to all of you who came out and made this a weekend to remember, allow us to simply say thanks. We won't ever forget it.
Locals: come see us Friday at the new Dojo with Planks and Tombs. After that: silence until October.
Long live the beast.

Pardon the shitty picture. Here is what the actual gatefold Lps look like, and as you can see they came out quite striking. Thanks of the highest caliber to Scott and Cara from Seventh Rule, they went the extra mile for us, and we appreciate it.
The Altar of Plagues show was a success, even with a few fumbles on our part. We solider onward, and are continuing to write new material, which we will begin to incorporate into our sets when perfected. Our next local show will be with Tombs on August 20th, and after that we plan on laying off of the live assaults for awhile in order to focus on writing.
We leave Thursday night for the TuPacalyptic Raids mini tour, so check out the previous post for more info, and if you live near one of the shows, come out and say hello. We will have heaps of merchandise to unload, as well as many tankards of fine ales to hoist high. Any help with lodging, and um, "hospitality," will be welcomed and rewarded in kind.
Thanks again to all of you who care, we appreciate it.

Coffinworm - When All Became None
Reviewed by Andy "Dinger" Beresky (www.stonerrock.com)
Indianopolis's Coffinworm caught my attention the old fashioned way; they released a great three song demo as their debut. With song titles like "High On The Reek Of Your Burning Remains", and a brutal, ugly sound to match, there was no way that the demo EP Great Bringer Of Night wasn't going to win me over instantly. After hearing that Sanford Parker was going to produce their full length, I obviously had high expectations for this release. "Start Saving For Your Funeral", the sample track they previewed on their Myspace awhile back, with its dare-I-say "catchy" verses and infectious off-kilter melodies, left no doubt in my mind that this album was going to go for the jugular.
These guys reside solidly within the Unearthly Trance school of sludge. They mix thick doomy riffs with more higher register chunks of six string noise, and a harsh, aggressive vocal style. The black metal and punk influences are clearly also there, but not as much D-beat, and they lean much more heavily on the death metal side of things, which is always welcome in my book. The tempos range from a snail's crawl to a mid-paced groove, with a few faster sections as well for good measure. There are a lot of different elements and influences going on, but what it all really boils down to is this: if it's ugly but awesome, it's in there.
Like I mentioned above, the songs have good hooks that are instantly accessible and memorable. They aren't quite as melodic as latter day Unearthly Trance, but with riffs like the one from "Spitting In Infinity's Asshole", with it's swirling, repetitive psych doom swagger, they don't need to be. The vocals also aren't as melodic, but they're just as intense in their range, from high pitched howling yells to guttural growls, all within the space of the same breath. Powerful stuff to say the least, and Sanford's production as always brings just enough clarity to give the tones and atmospheres maximum weight.
This is already shaping up to be a great year for heavy music, and this is one of the best heavy releases I've heard thus far. Definitely add it to your "must have" list, this is a serious top ten contender, even with a slew of big names still lined up to release later on in the year. For fans of Unearthly Trance, Coffins, Middian, and Cavity, this is highly recommended.

We still have some copies of the absolute last batch of demos, as well as some of the absolute last batch of the Start Saving shirts. Orders through the Big Cartel link as per norm.
Chris will soon have the When All Became None Cds available through Profound Lore. You may alternately procure it from us at the Historic Melody Inn on April 16th when Lair of the Minotaur, Slam Dunk and some additional homies will be in the buildin'.
As always, thanks to all who've enjoyed, supported, criticized, or complained of our campaign.
Hails and vengeance.
