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. - BlackenedDeathMetalZine

Minnesota black/death gravediggers Coffin Rites originally formed in 2017, releasing an album as Coffinrot before changing their name. While Retribution Divine is still representative of Coffin Rites, their new album Human Erase is the first official album under the new moniker. Decibel Magazine is psyched to offer an exclusive listen before the album’s release so you can sink your fangs into one of the year’s most crazed black/death records.
From the incendiary shred of opener “Buried in Blood,” Human Erase boasts frantic and frenzied energy. Even slower-paced tracks that rely more on ominous mood-building (“Cryogenic Awakening”) erupt with bursts of hellfire. The melodic riff-work of “Heart of Darkness” lures listeners into one of the album’s fastest blasts. Human Erase is rife with intriguing tone shifts; “The Night Speaks” could be an acoustic interlude on a classic Tiamat record. “Last Nail in the Coffin” relishes its death ‘n’ roll groove. The closing title track is the most diverse, blending hardcore and post-punk influences to the band’s scorched foundation. The recording and mixing by guitarist Will Maravelas gives the album a cutting sound that differentiates the snarls and growls from vocalist Drew Blood and gives the bass room to breathe. The legendary Dan Swanö mastered the record, sharpening each serrated note. This record is black/death for purists and hardcore kids alike. It has mood, menace, and a barrage of riffs like a doomsday air strike.
“Human Erase is a dark dive into the human psyche in which humanity either thrives or dies from our actions or inaction with each other and the surrounding world,” the band explains. “Each song is it’s own story told through the songwriting from the group as a whole, and the lyrical creations of vocalist Drew Blood.” - Decibel Magazine
