Finnish doom lords Coughdust have released their follow up to their debut ‘A Means to An End’, and are taking their deathly stoner doom to new heights with ‘Worldwrench’, out last October via Suicide Records. ‘Worldwrench’ is a steamrolling record of death, doom and destruction.

Opener ‘Serpents of the Earth’ instantly feels like a more raging version of classic Electric Wizard fuzzy doom. Each massive groove is coated in fuzzing distortion, and cyclopean riffs cascade from your speakers. This is a primal song; taking you into the roots of all heavy music with huge guitar and bellowing roars. It is a pretty definitive opening salvo, and when ‘The Second Principle’ kicks in an almost Swedeath guitar tone and attitude it gives you shivers. It feels like the lost link where death and doom meet, where savagery meets the inexorable pushing force of THE RIFF. Beautiful stuff.

Wherever Coughdust takes you, be it the chugging Dismemberisms of the title track or the crumbling epitaph of ‘Blind’, ‘Worldwrench’ is a record that will instantly gratify your cravings for heaviness. Like the crushing pressures of the deep, Coughdust have dragged ancient doom to your door and left a corpse waiting for you. Are you ready for this? You had better be because ‘Worldwrench’ will consume those too weak to resist.
