(*/10) Japanese Coffins and Ilsa from Baltimore release a split 7", The A-side contains Coffins' "Tyrant" while Ilsa contributes with "Cult of the Throne".
Both songs are brutal. "Tyrant" is grooving death metal with an immense riffing and raging leads. When death meets sludge you'll get "Tyrant". This song is a real blast.
What comes can keep the level - easily. Ilsa keeps the tempo a bit more slower than Coffins, enlarged the sludge part and combines it with some grooving death metal elements. "Cult of the Throne" is a savage metal beast that combines the best out of doom and death.
