Absvrdist/Ilusory/Abyssal Warfare Promotions/2012 CD Review


  Absvrdist  are  a  band  from  San  Antonia,  Texas  that  plays  a  blackened  form  of  grindcore  mixed  with  crustcore  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2012  album  "Illusory"  which  was  released  by  Abyssal  Warfare  Promotions.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  a  great  amount  of  brutal  sounding  blast  beats  being  thrown  into  the  music,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  riffs t hat  combine  black  metal,  gindcore  and c rustcore  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  soft  and  clean  playing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  range  from  high  pitched  black  metal  and  grindcore  screams  to  deep  crustcore  style  shouts  and  growls  along  with  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts,  while  the  lyrics  cover  violent,  hateful  and  humorous  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Absrvdist  are  a  very  great  sounding  hyrid  of  black  metal,  crust  and  grindcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Funny  Games"  "First  World  Problems"  "Needful  Things"  and  "Shitidiot".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
