Copremesis 04:03
Agonizing pain, feels like I'm going to die Something is wrong, horrible taste in my mouth. Sprawled on the floor writhing in pain hoping that this soon will end I'm going to die laying face down in a puddle of my own shit Repulsive expulsion, feces erupts from my mouth Unnatural excretion, violently losing my guts Stomach is full, Nowhere to go, Intestines completely shut down Disgustingly sick, bile and shit Fecal vomiting disease Relentlessly puking Bloody and vile Knowing I'll likely be dead in awhile Body gives up Vomit has ceased Sprawled on the floor covered in puke and deceased
2.
Mind clouded by pills and hard alcohol He's made the decision to end it all Have one last drink and head back to the shop He's going to pull himself through the saw The only way out is to end your own life The only way out is a saw blade suicide Flips the switch on his back he lays Pull himself right up to the blade Rusty saw blade rips his body in two Bloody, gory guts his body did spew. The only way out is to take your own life The only way out is a saw blade suicide
3.
Blood curdling screams from the chamber below Feelings of terror and curiosity grow Starving shackled prisoners await their demise Ripped and torn apart by a torture device Rats eat through the flesh Blood spews out the chest Eyes ripped from your skull Heads stuck on a pole Skewered as the doors of the iron maiden close Cut open slowly, internal organs exposed Pendulum swinging over top of your head Slicing through your torso till you're finally dead
4.
Beaten, kidnapped, locked up in a cage Nauseous feeling, rotten stench, smell of cooking flesh Hanging hooks, scraps of meat, body parts scattered Sound of screams, then laughter Psychopath killer Taken, beaten, tortured, murdered Taken, butchered, eaten, forced self-consumption Strapped down, bound and gagged, so I can’t make a sound Takes a knife, cuts a chunk of flesh from my leg Silent cries do no good as I wait for my meal Fillet the meat, bloody chunks, forced to eat Bleeding out, my limbs, all of them eaten Vomiting, raw meat, all I want is to die Pulling out my organs, quickly eating Sickening slow, painful death from forced self-consumption
5.
Necrotized 02:45
Lesions, appear upon the skin Oozing, a pusy excretion Infection of the open sores Bacteria spreading more and more Necrotized, disease rots flesh away Necrotized, horrific, living decay Devouring, feeds on flesh and bone Suffering, infected areas grown Quickly spreading, my whole body rots Overwhelmed by suicidal thoughts Rotting, awful sight to see Open wounds, deep into the meat Eaten, alive by this plague Necrotized, horrific living decay
6.
Harmless, or so it seemed Unstable makings of a fiend Secluded house to bring them in Murdered, made a suit of their skin Incubation of Madness Bludgeon, bash her over the head Psycho arousal from the dead Post-mortem mutilation of the corpse Carcass ripped open with brute force Incubation of Madness Psychotic perversion, stalking the streets Skinning his victims and keeping the meat A beautiful woman, he cut off her face Worn as a mask to hide his disgrace Dozens of bodies found in his home Scattered bits of flesh and bone Naked corpse found in his bed Gruesome, monument to the dead Incubation of Madness
7.
Plucked from the cage and tossed on the rack No one will save you there's no going back Factory filled with those screaming in pain Hooks bury deep in your arms and your legs Machine fires on and the process has start Slowly the hooks pull your body apart It rips you in half with one final tug Life violently ends with a splatter of blood Violent process Dismantled carcass Machines pulling Separated completely Ripping Tearing Shredding Mechanical Separation Dismembered Gutted Splattered Mechanical Separation

Coffin Rot 07:20
Wake up interred Buried alive Panic sinks in Call out for help No lights, just black Only sound my breath Scratching the box Bloody fingers splintered Crying out, walls closing in Dark, silent Hell I'm trapped in Awaiting death as I lay In this coffin and Rot Screaming out for help, no one hears Suffocating darkness, worst of my fears Bloody, broken fingers scratch the lid Can't escape this Hell I'm trapped in Maggots seep in Latch on my flesh Eating me alive Victim of Coffin Rot

about

Rotted Life, in conspiracy with Blood Harvest Records, is proud to present the highly anticipated debut album of Portland, Oregon's Coffin Rot, A Monument to the Dead, on CD, vinyl LP, formats and cassette. Formed in 2017, Coffin Rot quickly set to work on their first demo, following it a year later with another one as well as a split with comrades Molder. Wasting no time, now comes their full-length debut, A Monument to the Dead, displaying their swift mastery of the metal of death. Aptly titled, A Monument to the Dead is a timeless and trend-free synthesis of various eternal strains of death metal: Grave's proud 'n' powerful surge, Obituary’s no-frills crush, and the urgent depravity of early Cannibal Corpse, and a whole host of other equally stout influences. However, it's the manner in which Coffin Rot are able to rearrange these parameters into something horrific and, above all, immediately memorable: while by no means sticking to predictable verse/chorus rock-music structures, A Monument to the Dead retains an infectious catchiness whilst remaining resolutely and utterly dark and deathly. Adding to the album's potency is a clear-yet-crushing production that's the epitome of powerful - and one which is richly analog, ably highlighting Coffin Rot's very human (and very literal) execution.
Completed by dank 'n' disgusting artwork courtesy of Skadvaldur, Coffin Rot deliver a monument to the dead - are you among those doomed souls?
