Zillion years ago when I was a teen, I tried to read George Orwell’s 1984 for the first time. At the same time I watched Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” for the first time, again. Both masterpieces had a deep influence on me because back then they were the most depressing I’ve ever experienced. First time I read 1984 I couldn’t understand the deep message Orwell was trying to say. Same thing to Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” and its complex torrent of feelings. I guess I was too young to fall in love – ops! I had absolutely no idea of what was to come…
Thing is that zillion years after I had the same experience while listening to Into Coffin’s “Unconquered Abysses” and their extreme doomy and dark mood. It was kind of a revival of the first time that I had the pleasure to listen to Into Coffin back in 2017’s “The Majestic Supremacy of Cosmic Chaos” one of the efforts that presented me to Funeral Doom. “Unconquered Abysses” takes the suffering to a higher level than “The Majestic Supremacy of Cosmic Chaos” not only because it’s longer, but also because Into Coffin took grief for granted and experienced deeper musical ideas to show them in four ghastly tracks that take the fan to the ultimate level of pain, grief and wrath.
There is one annoying feature in “Unconquered Abysses” that really makes me wonder. That is the absolute lack of vocals, or what should be called vocals in a orthodox way because all four tracks “Unconquered Abysses” reveals yells, screams, and urges of all types and forms and sounds. No, it’s not a grumpy old man complaining about the news on Metal, just a guy that eventually likes vocals. The problem is that without them tracks sounds too much the same though, of course, I know that is really the intention, and Into Coffin really did well in that. It takes time to get used to their music.
Ok, that well put, “Unconquered Abysses” is an album for the fans who are really into Funeral Doom Metal. No more, no less. Into Coffin really gice what the fan want.
Into Coffin “Unconquered Abysses” will be released on November 29th via Terror From Hell Records.
