Coffin Birth, the new death metal band featuring Hour of Penance guitarist Giulio Moschini, bassist Marco Mastrobuono and drummer Davide Billia, Fleshgod Apocalypse guitarist Francesco Paoli and Beheaded vocalist Frank Calleja, will release their debut album The Serpent Insignia on November 30. The album is some serious HM-2 death metal, though maybe a touch less Swedish than you're used to and a lot more in the vein of the bands whose members comprise Coffin Birth.
We're streaming The Serpent Insignia today, and here's what vocalist Frank Calleja had to say about the record.
"The Serpent Insignia is an album which embraces the extreme and old school 'take no prisoners' attitude. It is a deadly infusion of death metal, rock’n’roll, metal and punk, blended together in a rough, dirty, heavy, raw and contaminated sound. There is a sense of unsettling urgency in the songs, an impending dread of disaster looming upon the listener from track to track.
The lyrical themes are varied, ranging from depictions of post-apocalyptic scenarios such as 'Throne of Skulls' and 'Godless Wasteland' to the more philosophical outlook of 'The Serpent Insignia' alongside more story like themes such as 'Sanguinary' and 'Zombie Anarchy.'"
