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?

Track Name: Copremesis
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
Track Name: Saw Blade Suicide
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
Track Name: Miasma of Barbarity
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
Track Name: Forced Self-Consumption
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
Track Name: Necrotized
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
Track Name: Incubation of Madness
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
Track Name: Mechanical Separation
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
Track Name: Coffin Rot
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
