In the Absence of Light

Rated 2.7/5 (54%) (10 Votes)

Despite their stupid name, Abigail Williams always get a lot of ink, and so I was interested to finally hear what they could do. I missed their much-hyped debut album, but here we have their second full-length, entitled In the Absence of Light.

AW may have started out as some kind of 'core band, but you would not really be able to tell that by listening to this. True, their compositions are simple and predictable, but you could say that about a lot of bands, even good ones. Overall I find this listenable but not amazing. The production is solid and crystal clear, with a very Death Metal drum sound and a nice crunchy guitar tone. The riffs are basic chugga-chugga, and the vocals are an undistinguished croak. I'd say more about this, but there just is not much to it.
