Coffin Rites are a band from Minneapolis, Minnesota that plays a blackened mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "Human Erase" which was released by FTWNU2 Records.
A very dark yet heavy sound starts off the album while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic yet old school style. Vocals are a mixture of black metal screams and death metal growls along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a great amount of brutal sounding blast beats.
Elements of thrash metal can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. A lot of the music is also very heavily rooted in the mid 80's to early 90's era but modern at the same time along with one track also introducing clean playing onto the album.
A couple of later songs are also brief classical guitar instrumentals but keeping the main focus on a more heavy and brutal style along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover human psyche themes.
In my opinion Coffin Rites are a very great sounding blackened mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Buried In Blood" "Mask Of Sanity" and "Human Erase". 8 out of 10.
