The two-man death/doom metal unit known as Encoffination yields a sinister musical entity entrenched with a stench-ridden slow crawl and laden in an atmosphere of suffocating dread and despair on their latest affair RITUAL ASCENSION BEYOND FLESH. Adorned with eerie samples from horror movies as the only decipherable human sound on the album, the diabolical din whipped up by this tandem gives more than a nod to the progenitors of the doom death movement, wavering between funeral dirge and subterranean cacophonic chaos without any sense of warning while crash cymbals act as mile markers for the utterly oppressive murky guitar and guttural vocal journey into the depths of the abyss to develop an authentic evil sound and an overall chilling listening experience.
