REISSUE OF THE DEBUT FULL LENGTH W/ THREE BONUS SONGS TAKEN FROM “Temples Descend Below the Earth” EP (Archasm Releasing 2010).
“My kind of music. Utter darkness, a bottomless pit of night. Unapologetic underground metal at its best and most captivating” – Tom G. Warrior (TRIPTYKON, CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER)
From the darkest abyss comes U.S. death metal/doom band ENCOFFINATION, whose album entitled “Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh” is released by Selfmadegod Records.
Formed in 2009, ENCOFFINATION is the sepulchral embodiment of rancid death. Crushing, suffocating death metal doom of the lowest caliber. Named for the ritual preparation of the dead for burial, ENCOFFINATION exists below the plane of mortality; deep within the realms of death and decay. Slowly they lurch forth with their educated form of blasphemy, occult, and ritualistic expulsion of the holy from the earth.
This is the first full length from this amazing two-piece band, which is comprised of Goat on vocals, guitar, and bass (also in Festered) and Elektrokutioner on drums (also in Decrepitaph, Festered, Tombstones, Beyond Hell, Scaremaker). The follow-up to their After Their Temples Descend Below The Earth 7-inch, released earlier this year, this Georgia/Texas-based duo attacks with the 8-song Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh, featuring over 30 minutes of cryptic metal influenced by early ‘90s American doom/death and bands like INCANTATION, DISEMBOWELMENT, and MORPHEUS DESCENDS.
