Kentucky's Abominant have returned with a new album that continues the brutal blackened death metal sound of previous recordings and this is a review of their 2016 album "Napalm Reign" which will be released on July 29th by Deathgasm Records.
War sounds start off the album before going into a very fast and brutal direction which also introduces blast beats and high pitched black metal screams onto the recording along with some morbid sounding melodies and after awhile death metal growls make their presence known on the recording.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the solos and leads also stick to a very dark and melodic musical direction and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the riffs also bring in thrash elements while also utilizing a great amount of tremolo picking and a couple of the tracks also brings in power metal style vocals along with the riffs adding in speed metal influences while most of the songs stick to a more brutal style and there is also a brief instrumental that also introduces clean playing onto the recording before closing the album with 2 vocal songs..
Abominant creates another recording that remains true to the blackened death metal sound of previous recordings while also adding in more speed and thrash metal elements as well as expanding on the black metal influences, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover war, darkness, and evil themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Abominant and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No Peace" "Iron Clad" "As Evil Rears Its Head" and "Screaming In The Night". 8 out of 10.
