This year brings us a lot of trouble and shit but also it brings us a lot of great releases. Today I wanna talk about a nice grinding death metal release, a split 7” with Ruin / Abysme! This small vinyl is rotten to the core, just look at this disgusting cover art, ha! Same I can say about the music inside, this putrid death metal is dreadful and bloody good!
It`s always cool to hear new stuff from veterans Ruin, I love their music. We have here only two song, but, fuck, both of them are killer! The sound is low and super heavy, also it has a good portion of rot inside. The dark atmosphere of “Into Endless Chasms” and “Manifestation” is bone-crushing! I think, my favorite part of this band its bass guitar sound, it’s ridiculously good! The guitar tone and vibrations that they create are beautiful. Also, I love that Ruin is not playing dry death metal, their music has some punk moments and I really like it.
Next on the line is Abysme. This is a new name for me and I didn’t expect to hear such good material. Their sound is not so heavy, but these songs are full of good cheerful tempos and rhythms! I love how this creepy (in a good way) growling running together with buzzing guitar and old school blast beats. This music is close to the gloomy atmosphere of Ruins, so although this is a split release, everything sounds like 1 solid piece!
Rating: 8.5/10 Ruin Abysme bc
