Tumefying and bludgeoning old school death metal/crust punk from Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. CRUZ's music is a sonic horde from hell than can not be repelled. WOLFPACK/WOLFBRIGADE, BOLT THROWER, SLAYER and DISCHARGE bottlenecked into an explosive detonation of unchallenged wrath, built with the sole purpose to reap endless havoc upon human ears and flesh. Behold the legions of hell!
Picking up where they left off with their praised 2010 full-length debut, "Ritual Ascension Beyond Flesh", the new book of hymns, "O' Hell, Shine In Thy Whited Sepulchres", redefines and magnifies ENCOFFINATION's signature low-end funeral doom wrapped in the pure stench of death....
Formed in 2009, ENCOFFINATION is the sepulchral embodiment of rancid death. Crushing, suffocating death metal doom of the lowest caliber. Named for the ritual preparation of the dead for burial, ENCOFFINATION exists below the plane of mortality; deep within the realms of death and decay. Slowly they lurch forth with their educated form of blasphemy, occult, and ritualistic expulsion of the holy from the earth.
REISSUE OF THE DEBUT FULL LENGTH W/ THREE BONUS SONGS TAKEN FROM "Temples Descend Below the Earth" EP (Archasm Releasing 2010). "My kind of music. Utter darkness, a bottomless pit of night. Unapologetic underground metal at its best and most captivating" - Tom G. Warrior (TRIPTYKON, CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER)
