Abyssal – Denouement LP
First LP by inscrutable UK death/black/doom group Abyssal. Along with Cruciamentum, Grave Miasma and others, Abyssal are helping to put the Redcoats back on the metal map. While there's a lot to like on "Denouement" in all three of the genres Abyssal straddles, what really stands out to me are some of the black metal riffs. Slithery, side-winding and discordant, not entirely unakin to Deathspell Omega and some of their contemporaries. Black vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve. 1st pressing of 400 on black.
Released by Hellthrasher Productions.
