Abythic – A Full Negation of Existence [EP] (2015, Metal Inquisition Records)
Coming from Germany, Old School Death metal band, Abythic, has released an interesting EP containing four songs of pure growls à la Bolt Thrower, Asphyx, and Grave. With a melodic guitar riffing accompanying their simple but yet effective pounding sound of a perfect blend between American Death metal and European melodic oriented acts, Abythic represents a little bit of everything every Death metal fan is looking for.
The only thing that sets me off a bit are the melodic guitar riffs that are too present for my North American Death metal enthusiast ears. However, I will be getting back to Abythic when they’ll release anything new. EPs are made to discover new bands and it hits the target for me here.
