Album Review

abacus   3/27/2013   A Library, CD

Char blackened metal rigor mortis writhing in pits of doom and despair. Imperial is the tortured screeching soul who reeks of nihilist misanthropia as only a true New Jersey-an could. Slithering arachnid feeding frenzies on guitars, sometimes getting a little math thrashy (3,8) but with plenty of headbangers to face punch for sure. Bass emerges from the din at times and the drums are bleak as you would expect any monotone black metal to provide but some nefarious variety leaks in, with a goth zombie dance party on 5 and some overblown power noise flooding track 9. Also some spooky industrial interludes on 6 and 10. All in all some quality brutality. Dreams from the ghost at the bottom of the well. Let go of the earth…
