Brutal, unrelenting, transcendental ashen death metal, “Within A World Forgotten” is an artistic expression mired in vast dark atmosphere through the many layers of sound, ambience, and noise that cast an enveloping shadow throughout the 36-minutes that encompass this overbearing work.
The band’s 2014 demo “Burning Prayer of Infinite Hatred” gave listeners a glimpse into the fury and dissonance the band delves into through a barrage of blast beats, roaring guitars and guttural vocals. And as witnessed with their follow-up EP “Bodies Set In Ashen Death”, it saw the band explore more complex, enchanting boundaries that would serve as a harbinger to what would eventually culminate to horrifying intensity into what would become “Within A World Forgotten”. The musical dichotomy speaks to INFERNAL COIL’s conceptual themes of the natural world’s paradoxes, contrasting the beauty and chaos of nature, as well as humankind’s seemingly inevitable self-destruction.

Confession: I sometimes buy albums purely based on them having cover art courtesy of Jef Whitehead. This is one of those albums. Good thing ol' Wresty never leads me astray. This is a gosh darn masterpiece. Cole “Master ov Crabs” Galando
