Swedish/German death metal band ABSCESSION premiere new track via No Clean Singing

Abscession‘s music is being widely talked about and it’s easy to see why. They’re playing old school death metal to perfection, balancing the sound with the right amount of HM-2 heaviness and classic, Swedish-style melodies. More importantly, they riff really well. There are several tunes that will remain in your head for days really, as if they were worms. No Clean Singing premiered one such track AT THIS LINK

“The music is undeniably ferocious, but what makes it stand out from a lot of similarly inclined revivalist bands is the incorporation of evocative melodies, which really make the songs songs, each with its own character. And they really do irresistibly get stuck in the head.”

Atavistic HM-2 driven Swedish style death metal is given a sense of refined German death metal structuring and tempered with shimmering melodies, making Abscession‘s new album ‘Rot of Ages’ the epitome of immaculately balanced old school death metal music. The music maintains a brisk and punchy crust/punk derived tempo throughout, deftly punctuating it with melodic passages and heart-stopping breakdowns, to make it an immensely engrossing and overall gratifying affair. The interplay between the faster, crunchier sections and the brilliant, emotive melodic streaks is exceptional, and also adds more depth to an otherwise raunchy and abrasive death metal album. Each song has its own identity, marked by highly memorable riffs that are diverse but retain character and sound. Even with a plethora of Swedish death metal sounding releases out there, ‘Rot of Ages’ manages to hold its own if only because of the strength of its songwriting and encapsulating the best this style of death metal music has to offer, while still sounding fresh and spirited. At once pulverizing and evocative, Abscession have released one of the finest death metal albums in the style this year.
