Abaddon Incarnate are a band from Ireland that h as been interviewed before in this zine and plays a brutal mixture of death metal and grindcore along with some black metal elements and this is a review of their 2014 album "Pessimist" which will be released by Candlelight Records.
A very distorted and heavy sound starts off the album before going into a very fast and brutal mixture of death metal and grindcore along with some blast beats and a mixture of screams and growls which gives the music a very old school feeling but with a more modern day sounding production.
On the other songs the bands sticks to t heir brutal mixture of death metal and grindcore while also adding in black metal influences to make their music sound more dark and they also do a good amount of tracks which do not utilize guitar solos and leads and on the later tunes they start bringing in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as addign in a more straight forward Swedish style of death metal but done in a lot more brutal and leass melodic manner than most bands of that musical style but there is some melody beign utilized on the last track of the album
Abaddon Incarnate remain true to t heir brutal death metal and grindcore mixture while also being a bit heavier than their previous recordings as well as keeping around the black metal elements, the production sounds very brutal and professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, left hand Path and dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Abaddon Incarnate and if you are a fan of brutal death metal and grindcore, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Yester Hara" "Fear" "Nameless grave" and "Funeral Hag". 8/5 out of 10.
