Coffinworm were a blackened sludge band from Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. They were active from 2007 - 2016 with two studio albums released.


Coffinworm formed sometime in 2007 at the time mainly playing gigs in their early years mostly in the Indianapolis area, notable early shows being at The Emerson Theater (Opening for The Gates of Slumber on their release party for Hymns of Blood and Thunder)[1] and in 2010 opening for The Gates of Slumber and Pentagram.[2] At some point in 2009 the band would release Their demo Great Bringer of Night. The band's first album When All Became None saw release on 5 April 2010 just in time for a tour of Texas for SXSW.

From there the band would share the stage with a multitude of touring acts in Indianapolis and occasionally branch out to other cities such as Chicago and Brooklyn. A split with Fistula saw release in 2012 as the band began work on their second album. VI.I.VIII would see a release on 18 March 2014 via Profound Lore. After more sporadic shows the band's last known show happened at Psycho Festival in 2015 before the band quietly disbanded the next year.
