Today we take a trip back to 1988 to a track from Coroner’s second album, “Punishment for Decadence” for the track “Masked Jackal.”
Coroner got their start as roadies for the band Celtic Frost and decided to form their own band. “Punishment for Decadence” showcases Coroner’s progression into more melodic guitar work and song themes about politics and personal introspection.
The video for “Masked Jackal” received substantial airplay on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball and helped to put Coroner on the map. The band released a few more albums and ended up parting ways in 1996 but reunited almost 15 years later and have plans for a new album this year with a new drummer as original drummer Marquis Marky left the band in 2014.
