Evoking the Abomination

Rated 3.86/5 (77.14%) (14 Votes)

The first time I listened to this album, I thought it sounded a bit generic, but I must have been having a bad hair day or something. :) After a few listens, this is not bad - but not groundbreaking either, rather a well-executed Death Metal album, not without reminding me to some extent of their countrymates Krisiun. The vocals are death growls but not too guttural - a good thing since quite a few death vocalists out there seem to want to puke their breakfast into the microphone. The album is pretty much "pedal to the metal" from start to finish, never slowing down much - if at all. There's a blatant abuse of the double bass drum, which in the end sounds more to me like there's a Harley on idle in the background. I don't see what more this brings to the songs, but anyway, it seems to be the norm these days. Other than that the drumming is fast and furious and pretty damn tight. The guitars caught my attention here, extremely fast yet they give a feeling that they're going somewhere rather than just playing for the sake of playing or trying to fit as much notes as possible in a given millisecond. The solos are beyond fast - maybe a bit too much, in fact - but tastes will vary greatly on this.

Here Abhorrence pretty much follow the proven recipe of Brazilian Death Metal to the letter, not venturing much from an established formula - and when you think of it, that's not really a bad thing.
