Coffinrot are a band from Minnesota that plays death metal with some elements of progressive, thrash, doom and black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album 'Retribution Divine" which was released by ZeroBudget Records.
Acoustic guitars along with some distorted melodic guitar leads start off the album before going into a heavier direction while the vocals bring in a mixture of death metal growls and screams that add in a touch of black metal as well as the faster sections of the songs also bringing in a great amount of blast beats.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style as well as the riffs also adding in elements of thrash metal and influences of doom metal are also added into the slower sections of the songs and at times the music gets very progressive and as the album progresses synths can also be heard briefly.
Coffinrot plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in death metal while the progressive, thrash, doom and black metal elements gives the songs more originality, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the macabre and the dark side of human nature themes.
In my opinion Coffinrot are a very great sounding death metal group with elements of progressive, thrash, doom and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mind Your Elders" "Sentenced To Serve" and "Retribution Divine". 8 out of 10.
