Abhorrence - Evoking The Abomination (Evil Vengeance Records) - Back
Brutal, Fast, Heavy, all the signs of a good death metal band, but what else is there to death metal? Having catchy songs, that people can feed off of. Abhorrence does this sometimes, but they also seem to use their blast beats to much, and the songs seem very similar. If they could have used their blast beats more to punctuate parts of songs then this would have been a good album. I do understand that there are people out there that love blast beats, but much like their death metal brethren Krisiun, they need to fill their songs with more then a constant onslaught of the snare drum. The band's sound is similar to Immolation and Incantation, but more of a young version. The eight tracks on this CD last for only twenty-eight minutes or so, a solid length for fast paced death metal. A few tracks that I get into include the title track "Evoking The Abomination," "Storming Warfare," and "Abhorrer Existence." There isn't anything else that hurts this album except sometimes the production can seem a little raw, but this helps, just as much as it hurts. This is a pretty decent effort. If Abhorrence could get off the blast beat a little these guys might be a decent death metal band. Give this band a few years, they may develop into something everyone will be talking about in the death metal scene.
