Abstractions of the Absolute Reviews

Reviewer :  level   (95/100)

The album Abstractions of the Absolute is a true masterpiece. The vocals are a combination of high-pitch squeals and deep death metal growls. There's some amazing drumming and guitar playing also, put together so that you get a completely unique and refreshing new sound which many dislike. It's kind of a cross between technical death metal with elements of black metal.

There are many good elements on this album with a few bad ones. The one bad element I could find with this album is the poor sound quality. The crash symbols seem to sound a bit odd or it could just be me. The good elements are that the sound is unique, especially the song The Blood Shall Spoil, dipping into high-pitched screams. Some very quick finger work and the listener will grip this song right from the first 10 seconds they hear it (as long as they can stand the vocals).

The first track on this ep is very, very odd and experimental. I think after the intro it drives straight into some odd buzzing sounds that I can't really explain . To be honest, this track isn't really needed as it doesn't show the band's true potential, but I think they very quickly regain this with their next track, The Blood Shall Spoil. It starts with a long scream and some technical death-style guitars and drums. This track starts off with the deafening high-pitched, squealing vocals that I really like. We next come into Self Modifying Game, which is a very fast-paced song with the mix of high and low-pitched vocals. Again another very good song.

The very final song and also the longest is Cnidaria. It's odd as this song starts off very slowly, then expectantly bursts into a quick-paced song, screaming and growling again, but this is more on the growling side than the screams with some very quick finger work as well.

Overall, a very good album and if you find this anywhere, I would buy it because you will not be disappointed with this very fine release.
