Coffins are a Japanese death-doom metal band, formed in 1996 by guitarist and vocalist Uchino. Having gone through several lineup changes in the past, they now consist of Uchino, Ryo (drums) and Koreeda (bass). Their sound is influenced by old school ’80s and ’90s doom metal, death metal and thrash metal. After several demos they released their 1st full-length album “Mortuary in Darkness” in 2005. One year later “The Other Side of Blasphemy” was released on 20 Buck Spin and Southern Lord in the United States. Their latest full-length “Buried Death” came to life in 2008. They have also shared split recordings with bands like Otesanek, Cianide, Grudge, Anatomia, Spun In Darkness, Lobotomized, Hooded Menace, Warhammer, among others.
Bones members Joe Warlord, Carcass Chris and Jon Necromancer first started playing together back in the 90s when they were all in the Chicago thrash outfit Usurper. After the band's implosion in '07 everyone went their separate ways but stayed active playing and touring in other bands. Well, bad habits die hard. In '09 Jon and Joe started jamming again and putting a few songs together. By the end of the year Chris was in the fold, and Bones was born. Forever a 3 piece of rock and punk styled metal, Bones plays simple, heavy, dirty and sleazy. No overproduction. No multi layered "studio" effects. No attitudes. Bones keep it real and crusty, the way it should be.
