COFFIN CURSE "The Continuous Nothing" CD (Memento Mori 2024)

The highly anticipated 2nd full-length by this Chilean band. Although Coffin Curse came into being in 2012 as a side-project of Inanna´s Max Neira, it didn´t take long for the band to assert their own identity. A demo was released that same year, to be followed by a handful of EP´s and splits, all before culminating in Coffin Curse´s debut album for Memento Mori, "Ceased to Be". A fresh breath of old air, "Ceased to Be" was as exemplary of 1990 Death Metal than it was 2020 "Death Metal". In their "regressive"/elevated state of mind, Death Metal back then possessed charisma and songwriting, chops and more than a bit of madness. Maybe class, too? Compared to so much riff-salad wank that´s followed, Coffin Curse were indeed classy. Now, four years later, Coffin Curse are back to reassert that classiness with "The Continuous Nothing", which is but a logical continuation of that not-inconsiderable debut: timeless, taut and terrorizing, actual songwriting is pushed to the fore with ceaselessly catchy riffing and an abundance of haunting-the-chapel leads. Also thankfully, Coffin Curse are unafraid of displaying their influences here -Morbid Angel, Deicide and Immolation during their turn-of-the-90´s heydays-, as well as the viciousness of founding fathers Possessed, Massacre and Chile´s Pentagram, but once again, the duo´s charisma pushes "The Continuous Nothing" into the realm of inspired rather than "inspired by", as each of the album´s nine songs surges and slices with maximum memorability and quite-literally-dangerous execution. But, through it all, "The Continuous Nothing" engages because of its classic/classy songwriting and none-more-powerful production, where each instrument is organic and almost-overwhelming in its true-to-life physicality. No popcorn or punch-ins here! Once again, Daniel Hermosilla (Nox Fragor Art) provides the dark-psychedelic icing on the cake with his cover art. For those who worship such vital follow-up as "Legion", "Retribution" and "Blessed are the Sick", Coffin Curse´s "The Continuous Nothing" is for you!
