Release date: The album has been available since August 24, 2021. On which label releases: It was released on FTWNU2 Records, a really strange name. Other releases of the band: Here we hear their second album. In the meantime, they have released two more singles. How did I get to know the band: As with most of the US bands I'm discussing here, the impetus came from Metal Devastation Radio. How do I find the disc: Quite neat the disc so far, but here unfortunately nothing half and nothing whole. Some songs don't sound bad, but with each one I find a point that destroys it for me. But more about that later, first the positive things: the vocals are damn strong, especially with the changes between growls and nasty screams. The rest also understand his craft. The solo in KILLING TIME AND SPACE sounds really cool. But unfortunately the solo is also much too long. From the canned I do not like such sprawling solos at all, live the guitarists of mine can also ball out as many and as long solos as they want. With the songs I also don't like how the genres are mixed, somehow they are always past the point where they would sound really cool. Conclusion: Technically really big class, but unfortunately not mine. Here the style completely passes me by. I like individual parts of the songs, but not complete ones. But listen to it.

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
