"…Smouldering", the debut release by Germany´s Abyssous is a massive piece of grim death metal slowly creeping up on you. It took me about four spins to get into their opus of smouldering (pun intended) but crushing form of death metal.
Abyssous is a relativly fresh name in the genre (formed in 2011), but they allready got their grip around this twitching form of extreme metal. The tempo and intensity is well spread out during the songs so they manage to stay fresh and interessting all the way to the end. Very little repetetive parts layered with an semi deep vocal on top to achive that lovely cold chill. The material is both from their first (and only) demo and some new tracks added after to complete the 30 minutes of this extravagant sonic assult named "…Smouldering".
Well worth checking out if you are into this form of ugly and evil form of layered notes and harmonies called detah metal music.
