Out today: Swamp Coffin

November 26, 2021


Angry, visceral sludge metal from Rotherham, UK. An album born of trauma and pain, the fact it was made and released at all is a miracle. These lads have been through the mill and somehow come out the other side. Get on it.

“Building on what was laid down on 2019’s Flatcap Bastard Features, the band have upped the ante, conceptually exploring the brutal realities of depression, trauma, grief, betrayal and a general disenchantment with the world; Noose Almighty is a harrowing but cathartic album”. – Distorted Sound Magazine

“It’s an album of catharsis that deals with depression, trauma, grief and disillusionment. It’s ugly. It’s brutal. It’s a hell of a listen”. – MMH Radio

“Part NOLA sludge, part Conan’s pummelling doom. Add a muscular flex of hardcore from the hotbed of Sheffield and Leeds. Like Black Sabbath warped by hardcore and contemporary cynicism”. – Decibel Magazine

“This album represents an enormous step forward and progression in Swamp Coffin’s musical output. Heavy, dirty, innovative, and ferocious, the future of UK metal looks like it’s in safe hands”. – Ave Noctum

Swamp Coffin - Your Problem

November 17, 2021

"The band is called Swamp Coffin and the song is called 'Your Problem'. If you expected anything other than being bludgeoned by riffs until you're a firm part of the Earth's crust, then I don't know what to tell you. Because this is absolutely that in heaps and piles, and deserves to be listened to at only the loudest possible volumes."

YOUR PROBLEM. Swamp Coffin's new single. Premiering today exclusively over at Metal Injection.

Taken from the album Noose Almighty, out on APF 26th November.

Get it in your face.

Happy Anniversary to PIST

November 08, 2021


Happy anniversary to PIST. Hailz was released two years ago today.

A massive step up from 2014's Riffology and 2015's Rhythm & Booze, it brought them to a much wider audience, culminating in their triumphant tent-filling performance at this year's Bloodstock Festival.

The best is yet to come though. The follow up is gonna floor you. Coming your way on APF Records summer 2022.
