The Black Dahlia Murder - Abysmal LP (Black vinyl)
This is what a melodic death album should sound like. With precision in the songwriting, a solid production quality, insane vocals, and uncompromising way of each composition. The songs are chaotic, but well played out guitar/drum-wise. Each instrument was mixing with exactitude. I really enjoyed this album over their latest because everything on the production fit in. The melodies were catchy and uncompromising. The leads are superb and done immaculately. There's no letting up on the intensity of this album. It's in your face melodic death. The vocals taking right form both in low and screaming tones. The latter more so.
