The band is called Infernal Coil. Their logo is an indefinable scrawl that looks like a bundle of twigs.
The LP is called Within A Forgotten World. The tracks have titles like ‘Wounds Never Close’ and ‘Bodies Set In Ashen Death’. It’s coming out on a label called Profound Lore.

Honestly, Infernal Coil, it’s like you’re not even trying. That logo is the kind of bad handwriting I was told off for ceremoniously in school. It’s a complete and utter metal scrawl from which I can infer absolutely none of the letters that make up Infernal Coil. And yet weirdly it is very instructive: I feel like I know immediately what particular moments of turgid death metal ‘Within A World Forgotten’ will be wringing out.
Playing gruesomely fast blastbeats and old death guitars around the occasional micro incident of clear-thinking, Infernal Coil have created one of 2018’s most brutal metal records, marring the atmospheric riffs that appear in this record in an obliterating muk. The band’s interest in the more atmospheric corners of metal comes through in abundance, with slower, doomier passages allowing them to occasionally sound like a band of dynamics. Not that they sound bad just having a thrash of things, but those brief, interluding outros provide the momentary breathing space you need when a band’s going this hard.
The absolute speed of this thing is gonna get you. Infernal Coil’s sound is pummelling in the main and a secret success of texture and detail in its backdrop -- that stuff is basically indecipherable, for the most part, but when they do break away you can hear something resembling the atmospheric blackened metal of days gone. Another absolute winner to go with Profound Lore's winning year of death mayhem, which has already given us Innumerable Forms. Woooooi!
