Ten years after their first outpouring Poor Man’s Coffin, The Casket Crew have unleashed their third dose of flesh eating discharge. As a whole this band sound like the bastard son from a transgendered embodiment of Carcass and Sodom. Furthermore, this album is a contouring of a bombardment cognate to Bolt Thrower, whilst also possessing a brooding attrition uniform to that of Solitude Aeturnus. With this hazardous fusion, The Casket Crew have found a blueprint that’s unnerving, indocile and sinister.
There’s also a fine coherence that needs to be addressed on Coercion: James Rodrock and James Casady sharing vocal duties certainly adds an extra dimension to the carnage resonant commodity.
The major accomplishment though is the variety on offer that keeps this bulldozer fuelled for all thirty-five minutes. The band aren’t afraid to divert from the pulsating death/thrash vanguard which for the majority is prominent. Tracks ‘Bones’ and ‘Funeral Dirge’ take a different grave route, bringing the auditory percipient into a slower and more begrime infirmary. -Stoodge
