ENCOFFINATION: “Charnel Bowels Of A Putrescent Earth”

Friday, 26th September 2014

With three solid years of putrid silence having passed since American death/doom metal duo, ENCOFFINATION, did its best to suffocate the masses with a full-length album, the even deadlier follow-up album is being prepared for exhibit.

This autumn, Selfmadegod Records will present the horrid III – Hear Me, O’ Death (Sing Thou Wretched Choirs), an album that takes ENCOFFINATION’s star-encrusted tones, slow-motion seismic rhythms and soulless, guttural conjuring to their most claustrophobic levels to date. Listen to the track, “Charnel Bowels Of A Putrescent Earth”, streaming below.

The follow-up to their 2011-released O’ Hell, Shine In Thy Whited Sepulchers LP, the cross-country based duo takes the rotted death-crush into more occult territory, and implement some of the most ghoulish, slug-paced funeral death to ever be recorded on III – Hear Me, O’ Death (Sing Thou Wretched Choirs). Constructed over a full year, the album was recorded in various sessions throughout 2013, the drums recorded at Universal Sound in San Diego, California, and the rest at Graf Yairden in Atlanta. Funeral vocal choirs, organs and other elements influence the flow of the album, making this one of the most harrowing releases of the year, not only one of the most slowly destructive.

Selfmadegod Records will release Encoffination’s III – Hear Me, O’ Death (Sing Thou Wretched Choirs) on CD and via digital delivery in North America on October 21st, and a month later on 2LP.
