When death and his plague exhaling horse come knocking on your front door, the last sound you’ll hear won’t be “…Baby One More Time”. It’ll be the dirge of doom expulsed by Texas/Georgia duo Encoffination. Not unlike the members’ grime-encrusted outfit Father Befouled, Encoffination’s brand of death is unpolished, guts hanging out, but ultimately dangerous. It sounds like march music for Hell’s ‘Abyss Brigade’, all dark, muddled yet rife with intent.
The basis for Encoffination comes from stringer burner/vocalist Ghoat’s experiences working in the funeral industry, and here’s what the death-familiar dude had to say about O’ Hell, Shine in Thy Whited Sepulchres. “Expect pure darkness. Take everything we have done before and turn it up. More death, more gloom, more decay. Guitars will crush, vocals will possess, and the atmosphere ofEncoffination will strangle you. We are adding more texture in the riffs, more things to take you by the throat and steal your breath.”
Encoffination’s new album, O’ Hell, Shine in Thy Whited Sepulchres, is out November 15th via Polish label Selfmadegod Records. Without further ado, prepare for your doom.
