ASHEN DEATH: Infernal Coil.

Infernal Coil is the cryptic and grinding death metal tormentor casting an ominous shadow from its home in Boise, Idaho. The group, rounded out by guitarist Glum, drummer Blight, and singer and guitarist Fol̼s (aka Blake Connally, formerly of Atlanta grindcore outfit Dead In the Dirt), wields scorched, high-velocity blasts of apocalyptic rhythm and chaos that drive like forces of nature leaving a clutter of destruction in its path. Fol̼s leads the charge with a nightmarish growl as lyrics dissolve into a grumbling dirge of demonic war cries. On the heels of releasing two EPs, 2016's Burning Prayer of Infinite Hatred, and it's most recent offering, Bodies Set In Ashen Death, Infernal Coil is set to lay waste to East Atlanta in one fell swoop.


With Wormreich, the Ancient Void, and Gregorio Franco. $10. 8:30 p.m. (doors). The Earl, 488 Flat Shoals Ave. S.E. 404-522-3950. www.badearl.com.
