Years ago we called coffin carousel the kings of horror pop-rock.
AFTER: NORTHLANE: From the lyrics to the avant-garde inclusion of elements of trance and DNB, Obsidian truly presents a new era for Northlane. // OCEAN GROVE: another trip to Oddworld COMMENTS: SINGLE PLAN: Harder than it looks // WINDWAKER: language of love // SILVERSTEIN: Misery made me // ATLANTIC STAND: FEAR
But now they’ve added a few more jewels to their crown, with their latest record, Order of the Bat, adding a host of metal, punk and stoner-doom elements.
Like their past efforts, LP3 features 18 tracks. And thankfully, Coffin Carousel has maintained the standard we expect of them, without sacrificing quality in their quest for quantity. On the contrary, despite its length and the number of sound avenues traveled, Order of the Bat sees the group at its best. Eerie energy, a focus on high-energy instrumentals, and Howard Von Noise’s powerful vocals helped the band achieve this.
Like a good horror movie, Order of the Bat had us on the edge of our seats throughout.
Besides tying it all together, they helped Order of the Bat become less of an album and more of an experience. As we called Law of Onethe title track and the cover of the zombieit is She is not there like our highlights, LP3 is a journey with ghosts, songs and remarkable bits littered throughout. Like a good horror movie, Order of the Bat had us on the edge of our seats throughout. It’s definitely a record you should listen to in full. Sit back and soak up.
EXCEPTIONAL TRACKS: Law of One, Order of The Bat, she’s not here
