Encoffination Announces New Album "III - Hear Me, O' Death (Sing Thou Wretched Choirs)"

Following a three-year gap since the 2011-released "O' Hell, Shine in Thy Whited Sepulchres" LP, American death/doom duo Encoffination now confirms the next chapter in its discography, finalizing t third full-length opus for arrival in mid-2014.

Construction on the third Encoffination LP has been underway for a full year, recorded in various sessions throughout 2013 with the bulk of it taking place last Spring. The drums were recorded at Universal Sound in San Diego, California, and the rest at Graf Yairden in Atlanta. As the band members are well into the mixing stages of the final sessions, they proclaim the name of the impending hymnal, "III - Hear Me, O' Death (Sing Thou Wretched Choirs)."

"We have made a pained effort to make this record as monstrous and suffocating as possible. We want to pull the listener even further into the abyss we channeled with the first two records. A conscious effort has been made to lengthen the tracks, to envelop the listener in the drear we invoke as we create our sound" offers the band's strings and throat contributor, Ghoat. "The concept, as opposed to the last record's theme of death practices, of this record is the glorification of death: an offering to the embodiment of death's creation, and to sing the wretched hymns of death's omnipresence, to kneel to death's crown as we all shall fall under death's eventual grasp. There will be more of the texture presented on the last record: organs, samples, choirs, and more, all with the same acrid funereal doom we have become known for. If the last record were a tool to teach about death, this record is that creation."

A final release date, cover art, track listing and samples of the wretched recordings will be released in the coming weeks. At press time, several confirmed track titles include "Charnel Bowels of a Putrescent Earth," "Cemeteries of Purgation," "Crowned Icons," "Mould of Abandonment," "Rotting Immemorial," and "From His Holy Cup Drink; Come Death."
