Coffinish are a band from Poland that plays a mixture of experimental, sludge and post metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Epilogue" which will be released in April by Unquiet Records.
Dark soundscapes start off the ep along with some distorted reverb which also gives the music more of an atmospheric feeling and the 20 minute song can also be very avant garde and experimental in some parts and once the drum beats kick in more traces of post rock are added onto the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the ep have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads stick to mostly a melodic musical direction and when vocals are brought into the music they are mostly aggressive sludge style screams and the riffs also bring in the heaviness of the same genre while also mixing in with the more atmospheric sounds that are present in the song which also brings in elements of post hardcore and after awhile a brief use of melodic vocals can be heard.
Coffinish creates a song that is over 20 minutes in length that mixes the heaviness of sludge metal and hardcore with the melody of post rock while also being very experimental at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based upon the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Coffinish are a very great sounding mixture of experimental, hardcore, sludge and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. 8 out of 10.
