Like their past efforts, LP3 features 18 tracks. And thankfully, Coffin Carousel has maintained the standard we’ve come to expect from them, not sacrificing quality in their quest for quantity. If anything, despite its length and the number of sonic avenues travelled, Order of the Bat sees the band at their most streamlined. An ominous energy, focus on high energy instrumentals, and the powerhouse vocals of Howard Von Noise have helped the band achieve this.
Like a good scary movie, Order of the Bat had us on the edge of our seats all the way through.
