Abhorrence are a band from Finland that plays an old school form of death metal with some elements of psychedelia, black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Megalohydrothalassophobic" which will be released in September by Svart Records.
A very dark and ritualistic sounding intro starts off the ep along with a small amount of spoken word parts before going into a heavier musical direction while the slower riffs are heavily influenced by doom metal and after awhile death metal growls and screams are added onto the recording.
A lot of the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's era while the riffing also brings in a great amount of dark sounding melodies along with the faster sections of the songs introducing blast beats onto the recording as well as the music also mixing in psychedelic and black metal elements but keeping everything heavy and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic and old school style and the closing track is very long and epic in length.
Abhorrence plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in the 90's era Finnish death metal style while the psychedelic, black and doom metal elements makes the music stand out a lot more, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based upon the writings of H.P Lovecraft.
In my opinion Abhorrence plays a very great style of old school death metal with some psychedelic, black and doom metal elements and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Anthem For The Anthropocene" and "The End has Already happened". 8 out of 10.
