U.S. death-doom dealers Encoffination practice their dark witchcraft at a snail's pace, inspired by the great Winter, the near immortal Rippikoulu demo, and Disembowelment. The latest glacially paced, hateful offering from this Atlanta / San Diego duo is their fourth LP, We Proclaim Your Death O' Lord, a seven-track effort that opens with the nasty "Ebony Skulls."
The opening track, which also makes it's first appearance here, kicks off with a combination of church bell, pipe organ and heaps of dark ambiance. Almost hopeful in execution at first, that all goes south once the down-tuned thunder rolls in, followed by the drum fills and death metal growls. Revolting to no end, it's an excellent way to start the LP and introduce the band to the unfamiliar. Check it out below for the first time and order yours via Selfmadegod.
