Reborn In Filth: Stream A New COFFINS Track Via Decibel Magazine

Coffins, one of my favorite bands in the deathdoom scene, signed to Relapse Records last year and I have been highly anticipating their new album (especially since I cannot get my hands on their recently-released covers EP). If you, like me, can’t wait to hear new tunes from the Japanese doomsters, you can now stream a new track below, courtesy of Decibel Magazine. This track will be featured as Decibel’s Flexi Disc series in September’s issue, but it hasn’t been ruled out as a one-off track. This just might be a track off of their forthcoming Relapse debut. Regardless, the track destroys, as I knew it would. Check it out below and leave a comment letting us know how you feel about it.
