Hallowed Butchery Streaming Entire "Coffin Life" Song From Batillus Split

One man genre bending metal act Hallowed Butchery is currently streaming the entire thirteen minute and 58 second track "Coffin Life" online, which is taken from a split release with Batillus (reviewed here). The whole track is available for streaming through the Hallowed Butchery Facebook page.

In a previously posted interview with the band, founder Ryan Fairfield had the following to say about the story behind the massive track:

The song tells the fictional story of a man named John Dabiers, whom was born and raised in small town New England. When he becomes a young man, he leaves, but soon returns as his connection to small town living is inseparable. He lives his life, working at a mill for many years, marrying, and having a few children. All the while, he dreams of quitting the 9-to-5 and running his own farm, with his wife. He nears retirement, and his wife and him begin planning the farm, however his wife dies in the process. On her death bed, she asks John to "do it for me." However, he is so grief-stricken from her death, and weak from old age, and doubtful (yet somewhat hopeful) that there is a God, let alone an afterlife... and he decides, either he's just killing time, or he is killing himself. He chooses the latter, and puts a bullet in his head, hoping that maybe, just maybe he will be reunited with his dead wife. In death, he finds that there is no heaven, nor a hell. He is dead, but what is torturous is that he is fully aware that he is dead, and that his wife is literally in the next grave over. She speaks to him, but he cannot hear. And time goes on, and those that are living are unaware that these two ever lived. There is no trace of them left behind on earth. Nothing, but "dormant ashes in a rust urn." That is their legacy.
