Coscradh – releasing Demo MMXVI
What you may need to know…
01. A band named for the Irish for “massacre” set an appropriate tone in their debut release. Death metal with black-metal overtones abounds.
02. No Clean Singing has sung/growled the band’s praises effectively: “when they punch the accelerator, it’s pure howling destruction”.
03. Streaming above in its entirety is the band’s demo tape, released digitally via Dublin metal lifers Invictus Productions. Physical cassette to follow, and likely to disappear quickly.
04. Appearing Sunday week in the Voodoo Lounge in Dublin alongside Belfast grinders Unyielding Love in support of Scandinavian metallers Degial and Vorum. Also scheduled for Galway’s Dark Arts fest this August.
Verdict: Ominous, bleak noises, amid sparse, yet considered production. Blistering stuff at its high-speed, suitably grim at a crawl.
