“Coffin Torture are a relatively new name in the southern doom sludge circle, but the duo has more than made up for it with a blizzard of releases unleashed via BandCamp this past September. This EP was recorded in 2012, and according to the liner notes, it's a concept release about "the first man to discover opium." With a set-up like that, compounded by the heavy atmospheric freak-out of the opening track ("HUL GIL"), the band has their work cut out for them, but thankfully, they deliver quite capably on their opioid promises. The first of the two 'full' tracks shares its name with the EP's title, vomiting up fuming sludge of a truly malignant bent, rumbling and growling from start to finish. It rolls right into "Bolted Down, Boiled To Grease", a similarly noxious track that boils with barely-contained sickness; in other words, a great bit of sludge.”
