Invictus Productions is proud to present the self-titled debut demo of Ireland's Coscradh, set for international release on July 29th. Coscradh, which is Gaelic for to slaughter or massacre, is a new revelation in the Irish black/death metal underground and yet another extremely promising newcomer fostered by Invictus. Across Coscradh, the theme of death as represented through old Irish folk tales finds its place amongst the modern setting of hideous death metal. Indeed, "hideous" is perhaps the best adjective for Coscradh in general and their debut in particular: gnarled and gnawing, possessive of a molten muscularity that always threatens to explode into chaos, each dread decibel in these four songs hearken back to a more primordial time, the four players neck deep in a state of primal psychosis. It's a sound that's simultaneously progressive and regressive, blunt and brainy - but forever in thrall to the core tenets of DEATH fucking METAL.
Invictus Productions will be presenting Coscradh's Coscradh on cassette tape first, with CD and vinyl versions to follow later. A full stream can be heard HERE. Coscradh will also be sharing a split release with America's Caveman Cult later this year. Cover and track-listing for Coscradh are as follows:
