Review: Full Of Hell – Coagulated Bliss

Full Of Hell released their in your face album Coagulated Bliss on April 26.

Full Of Hell released new album Coagulated Bliss on April 26 through Closed Casket Activities.

When I first looked at the album, I was intrigued by the number of tracks that come in at under three minutes. Out of the 12 songs on the album, only two clock in over this time. I’ve admittedly not listened to much of Full Of Hell so I’m not sure if this is a good or bad thing, but time will tell.

Opener Half-Life of Changelings doesn’t waste any time in being brutal. In all honesty it’s not really something I’m in to as I prefer tracks with more melody rather than in your face intensity but fans of death metal will be into it.

Fractured Bonds to Mecca’s instrumentation did catch me off guard. It was a funky start before the death growls kicked in. I love the chimes that pop up every so often and the various drum beats are a nice change, as they build in intensity.

The breakdowns and guitar work in the titular track are also quite cool.

Bleeding Horizon is the longest on the album, clocking in at over 6 minutes. It begins with the occasional strum of a guitar before some distortion from the bass. It takes a while to get going and I don’t think it needs to be this long as it’s quite bland.

In contrast, the shortest song on the record – Vomiting Glass – clocks in at just under a minute and puts its predecessor to shame as it is in your face and has a cool rhythm to it.

I’ll be honest Coagulated Bliss is definitely not an album for me. I won’t say it’s a bad album as I did enjoy elements to it, as mentioned with Fractured Bonds to Mecca and it’s not a genre I listen to often so I’m not really able to compare it.

If you like Full Of Hell or extremely heavy music, I’m sure you’ll love Coagulated Bliss, but it’s just not for me.
