Abhordium are a band from Finland that plays a blackened form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Omega Prayer".
A very dark and avant garde sound starts off t he album before going into more of a heavier direction while t he faster sections of t he songs also bring in a great amount of brutal blast beats along with the vocals also bringing in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams.
A decent amount of dark sounding melodies can be heard in the guitar riffing along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and melodic chants can also be heard briefly, when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very yet melodic fashion and atmospheric synths and clean guitars can also be heard on a few tracks as the album progresses.
Abhordium plays a musical style that takes black metal and mixes it with brutal death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover death, misanthropy, human conflicts, chaos, damnation, rituals and dark arts themes.
In my opinion Abhordium are a very great sounding blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Challenged Be My Hate" "Obsidian Chamber" "Dreary Touch Of The Void" and "Omega Prayer". 8 out of 10.
