“Chemtrails,” the latest offering from Final Coil’s new album “The World We Inherited” under Sliptrick Records, stands out as a formidable and weighty composition. Undoubtedly the heaviest track on the album, it showcases a remarkable evolution in Final Coil’s sonic palette. Drawing parallels to Killing Joke, Philip Stiles astutely captures the nuanced influences that shape this powerful piece.
From their earliest roots, Final Coil has been a purveyor of music with substance, seamlessly blending inspired musical imagination with profound lyrical depth. “Chemtrails” exemplifies the band’s ability to craft compositions that resonate with deep wells of thought and emotion. As a sonic edifice, each release from Final Coil serves as a testament to their unwavering commitment to musical artistry.
Hailing from Leicester, United Kingdom, Final Coil positions themselves as an alternative, hard rock force. Their new album, “The World We Inherited,” not only delivers the heaviest track in “Chemtrails” but also showcases the band’s versatility and variety. Ideal for both new listeners and longtime fans, the album unveils a rich tapestry of sounds, firmly establishing Final Coil as a band capable of navigating diverse musical landscapes with finesse.
At long last, the concluding, climactic chapter of Final Coil’s magnificent Persistence Trilogy is here. Six years after the story began with debut album Persistence Of Memory, four years since the groundbreaking The World We Left Behind For Others challenged our preconceptions of genre and form, Final Coil have once more reached new heights with every aspect of their uniquely brilliant music. The World We Inherited is a breathtaking affirmation of everything Final Coil have ever stood for – musically, creatively, intellectually – a remarkable conclusion to an exceptional beginning and an enticing gateway to an exciting and unpredictable future.
As it heralds the future for Final Coil, The World We Inherited also gazes into the future of human society, drawing listeners into a dark and frightening world of conspiracy theories, vicious authoritarianism and isolation. Inspired in part by a long, night-time conversation between song writer and lyricist Phil Stiles and Killing Joke’s Jaz Coleman, in part by the dystopian fiction of George Orwell and in part by simple observation of our relentless tumble into collective madness, The World We Inherited is an all-encompassing listening experience.
Speaking about the bleak reflections that run through the new album Phil Stiles said:“We live in an era of unprecedented threat. Flashing headlines, endless conflicts both inter and intra-civilisational in nature, and the swirling voices of social media have coalesced to create a cold and unforgiving world. We heard freedom’s call, but we failed to keep it within our grasp.”
Musically, The World We Inherited is every bit as profound, enthralling and affecting as it is lyrically. The unmistakeable blend of grunge, prog rock and post metal that characterises the Final Coil sound has been sculpted and caressed into even more bewitching and surprising forms. Each song is a beautifully textured, multifaceted gem – exquisitely crafted and emotionally charged. From the grinding power of ‘Chemtrails’, via the aching fragility of ‘By Starlight’, to the sonic splendour of ‘End Of History’, these songs, without exception, represent new peaks in the Final Coil canon and will stay with you for years to come.
Recorded at Parlour Studios with the globally renowned producer Russ Russell (Amorphis, The Wildhearts, Napalm Death etc.), who also mixed and mastered the album, The World We Inherited sounds spectacular. And in keeping with the preceding chapters of the trilogy it comes adorned in the artwork of Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art (Flotsam And Jetsam, Rock Goddess, Mordred, etc). Everything is in place, including a new deal with international label SlipTrick Records, who will release The World We Inherited on January 16th.Be ready for the return of Final Coil!
