Limbonic Art - In Abhorrence Dementia Digi-CD
Shipping starts mid March 2019.
“In Abhorrence Dementia” is commonly referred to as a Symphonic Black Metal album, but compared to albums of other bands, it shouldn’t be considered an example of that genre.
Well, for one thing, it’s hardly Black Metal as one would expect Black Metal to sound like. The production is very clear and the music is very light on the ears. Limbonic Art has created a certain atmosphere that is distinctly different from any other band and it’s all executed by competent songwriting involving a decent amount of spontaneity. The production makes the music sound very loose and light so it’s never in your face all the time. It’s all still heavy, but it all feels controlled at the same time.
The first two tracks, the title track and “A Demonoid Virtue”, have a space-like, nocturnal atmosphere but they sound more influenced by the sci-fi stereotypes as space as opposed to the cold, minimalist nature of the universe. That’s really just the tip of the iceberg. If I could describe the general feel of this album, it’s extremely animated. The music has a lot of ‘character’ without being too quirky or being a novelty act. It’s theatrical, adventerous, fresh, and majestic. Limbonic Art have created a fantasy world, and “In Abhorrence Dementia” is that journey through all the areas of that world.
There will never be another album similar to “In Abhorrence Dementia”, either from Limbonic Art or some other band. It’s really unique and offers a lot of surprises. It’s a big album, but you don’t have to listen to it all at once. There will be people who hate this album for the same reasons why we think it’s great. But it’s a one of a kind experience and the right audience will eat this up from the start.
Needed for fans of: Emperor, Satyricon, Dimmu Borgir
