Abythic - Conjuring The Obscure LP (Black vinyl)


If you’re keeping track you’ll note that Abythic have sourced some deep cuts North Rhine-Westphalia‘s greater death metal underground for these cameo performances in putting their spin upon the various dogmas of classic death metal. It bodes well for variety and each performance lends itself to their own standout moment but at some point it would be a hard thing to parse out upon casual listen without the context of the guest vocalists being explained. As a concept it does begin to make sense but doesn’t speak for itself; Though it might be easier to figure if you’d already understood Abythic‘s pre-established musical personality. To be fair the tracks featuring Liemy do establish a fair amount of those operating standards that the band typically brings but, the dynamic shifts feel jarring at times and meandering at others.
