Offering up a sound of pure unholy metal, Coffinrot fuse death metal, elements of black metal, thrash and even doom to create an overall skin ripping and flesh peeling sound that will have your brain splattered beyond the bounds of your skull. Retribution Divine is packed with eight full tracks of detrimental neck twisting death metal that drains your marrow and lets you of your blood nearly immediately. Retribution Divine is an unforgiving record, one that leaps through the gates of hell with a terrorizing blood lust. The overall macabre sound of this release does a great job of making your skin crawl and have your mind sink in to the darkest recesses that it can possibly find.
Through and through, Retribution Divine is terrorizing and horrifying as it pummels you in to oblivion nearly from the get go. Coffinrot lead you in to their new record with Mind Your Elders, which leads you to your demise with a calm yet darkened intro before completely shredding your flesh and sanding your skull down until your brain is exposed. Mind Your Elders is a ripping and savage track that pelts you from all sides with searing grave digging death metal that aims to gut and maim. This three and a half minute opening track sets you up perfectly for what is left to come through the remaining seven tracks. After Mind Your Elders, Coffinrot doesn’t let up from there or get any less perverse and obscene as they pour their brand of molten death on thick never to relent until you have been buried in a shallow blood splattered grave.
Following Mind Your Elders come seven more tracks following closely in the footsteps of the opening track. Each track within this release is a blood letting and ferocious trek down the halls of the damned and tortured. Each track is a hellish offering that spurts blood and viscera at every single turn burying you underneath droves of malignant flesh and stagnant blood before you know it. Retribution Divine is a barbaric and relentless release, one that charges forth, butcher knives brandished awaiting its next victim. This is a macabre and sickening release, one that delves deep in to the darker side of human nature. Retribution Divine twists and contorts your mind in to dark corners never to have it fully recover from a complete flesh splaying assault.
This release is solid overall as it features eight tracks that are well put together, performed and executed providing you with an overall savage and highly entertaining release. Each of the eight tracks here are lobotomizing, heavy and blood draining, everything you look for in death metal. Coffinrot has nailed this record and surpassed my expectations as they have created one hell of an album here in Retribution Divine.
