COELACANTH: Self-titled: CDEP

Whoa! Very cool blackened thrash ala early Bathory/Celtic Frost/Hellhammer, but with a tougher, almost Danny Lilker-band type attitude. Awesome raw, heavy, but totally audible production with the requisite ‘verbed-out vocals and gang shouts. Kinda like Toxic Holocaust—pre-Relapse budget—but y’know, tougher. Bummed that there are only four tracks! Killer.
