Meathook to the knees Now you're begging please "Don't kill me for my beliefs!" Fascist Dissection Bonesaw through the sternum Now it's you who's social vermin Bonehead skull hangs from my mantle Making your corpse an example of Fascist Dissection A foul condition Requires insurrection A social infection Begin the incision Fascist Dissection

Trapped in the ripple of It's creation Shame in the shadows of fornication Gospel of Lord is my enemy Liberate chambers of souls It seeks Liar upon the cross It is not my God Lamb's shame shall be lost Liar upon the cross Succubus... Insidious... Contagious... Insalubrious... Dissipating echoes of our time Holy ones become benign Retroactive against the divine "Savior" evanesced to slime Jesus Christ as Succubine Excavate tablets in xenoliths Consult the shamans in Cryptosis Transducing power throughout all worlds Crippling history to be revealed Inter-dimensional entity Masquerade as Holy Trinity Sustaining from spiritual energy Worship reduced to insanity Liar upon the cross It is not my God Lamb's shame shall be lost Liar upon the Cross Generate myths of our creation False promises of our salvation Shamanic chants bind a chrysalis Crystalline power to comatose It Liar upon the Cross

The Old Thing in the Ground Beneath a decrepit tomb Detained by silver chains Tendrils that corrupt by touch Buried in unhallowed ground An ancient evil awaits Beneath cruciform hills "Tibor... ungrateful warlord" "Tibor... betray your father?" Detained by silver chains Buried in unhallowed ground An ancient evil awaits Beneath cruciform hills "Faethor... unfaithful traitor" "Faethor... renounce my master" The Old Thing in the Ground Beneath a decrepit tomb Detained by silver chains Tendrils that corrupt by touch Buried in unhallowed ground An ancient evil awaits Beneath cruciform hills

Traversing through the Khovarty foothills An unholy psychic misting prevails I've been sworn to destroy the unearthly remains The stake, the sword, the flame Something's not quite right up ahead A looming stone embodiment of the dead It seems these buttressed walls and turrets Are reinforced with human bone and flesh A dripping, grating gravel voice in my head "DO YOU ENTER OF YOUR OWN FREE WILL?" Passing through the antechamber drenched in drowning dread A trap door to the dungeon, my fate is fulfilled Abysmal cavernous castle Cadaverous cancerous trap hold Ensnared by protoplast tendrils Siphoned skin and suctioned flesh pulled Left to feed The Thing in the Ground Rendered tissues sucking flesh sounds Consume liquid skin, blood and pus Nothing left just bones and corpse dust My life beyond saving My consciousness fading My viscera draining By The Thing in the Ground That bastard Ferenczy What a fate he has left me Escapes to his aerie In the sphere of The Source

about

With its monstrously misshapen riffs, guttural vocal fumes, and churning, demented atmosphere, the debut demo from Coagulate sounds more like it sprouted from Helsinki rather than their native Minneapolis. Either way, the 4 tracks here deliver a particularly virulent strain of death metal, just off kilter enough to appeal to those who like a probing of their cerebral cortex, but slimy and putrid enough to appeal to those who prefer to wallow in the primordial ooze. A must for fans of: Demilich, Adramelech, Phlebotomized.

“Coagulate reward the reptilian brain with tentacular, bone-snapping riffs, mutagenic leads, violent blast spells, and these ultra low growls that conjure up some deeply imprinted boogeyman archetypes” Decibel Magazine
