***NOW AVAILABLE ON VINYL!!! Oakland CA-based apocalyptic black doom harbingers Abstracter re-emerge with their inhumanly crushing fourth full-length album Abominion, a ghastly forty-minute hellscape of lightless crush-depth deep inside the darkest abysses of the apocalypse. Extreme and devastating in every sense possible, the soul-crushing album sees the enigmatic American band elevate their long lasting apocalyptic concept to its scariest and most overwhelming extremes yet, coercing the harshest strains of black and doom metal with ravaging scarifications of noise and droning dark ambient into a bleak and suffocating sonic cataclysm of complete darkness and annihilation.

Cinereous Incarnate by Abstracter

Abstracter

Cinereous Incarnate
Vendetta

***This is an album that isn't just stunningly bleak, it's got the sort of incredible balls and skull melting torment that makes for endless listening. There are few black metal albums that so perfectly sum up the inherent horror of black metal as a genre, this one goes beyond the pale, serving to rip us limb from limb and remind us why we got here in the first place.   The ominous trudge of Cinereous Incarnate is the result of years of honed efforts. This is the bands third full length and perhaps the most fully and elegantly conceived to date. Abstracter's ability to conjure up incredible and death defying atmospheres is impressive to say the least. Not only that though but there is something with the guitar tone that almost suffocates the listener. You find yourself drowning under a sea of volume and loving every oppressive minute of it. Yet despite how abstract this record can be and the familiarity with the scene needed to 'get it' there are some undeniable grooves that make it easy to sink in to what's been painted here.   Abstracter crawl forward, covered in their own filth and loving every minute of it. The magical devastation of a song like Wings Of Annihilation is not to be underestimated and is a clear indicator of the bands songwriting talent. Cinereous Incarnate is not just a masterful release - it's symbolic of all that black metal can be. It is mesmerizing and cruel,...

VENDETTA 159 


Wound Empire by Abstracter

Abstracter

Wound Empire
Vendetta

***With the threat of apocalypse constantly looming over humanity, Oakland-based ABSTRACTER supplies an apt soundtrack for the end of times, as they’ll prove once again on the quartet’s impending sophomore full-length, Wound Empire. Centered once again on the construction of lengthy, winding, and abyssal buildup and collapse progressions, Wound Empire brings entirely new elements to the sonic palette of Abstracter and of their massive and enveloping riffing, which is seemingly driven by an almost insatiable darkness and by a sinister and primordial hunger for complete annihilation. For forty-two minutes of uncontrolled hostility, Abstracter rips through four titanic ten minute-long surges of darkness-fueled anger, unleashing an almost unbearable barrage of sonic devastation on the listener and snaking and winding their way down a path of complete and dismal destruction in which crust, doom metal, sludge, black metal, noise and psychedelia twist and collide into a daunting sonic downfall.  Wound Empire was recorded and mixed last summer at Earhammer Studios in Oakland, California by Greg “The Wizard of Doom” Wilkinson (Brainoil, Pallbearer, Atriarch, Noothgrush, etc.) and mastered at Audiosiege Mastering studios in Portland, Oregon by Brad Boatright (Wolves In The Throne Room, Nails, Sunn O))), Sleep etc.). The album is undoubtedly a release to look out for in the underground realms of all things heavy and dark, and is a must for fans of Altar of Plagues, Inter Arma, Thou, Samothrace, Amenra, Tragedy, Indian, Wolvhammer, Unearthly Trance and such.
