Review: Abigail (Jpn) – Far East Black Metal Onslaught

The onslaught of barbaric black metal that prolific Japanese band Abigail brings is probably best summed up by the title of their new EP, ‘Far East Black Metal Onslaught’. This latest burst of blasphemy is due out in August through Helldprod Records, and looks to do nothing more than reassert themselves as the kings of underground Satanic panic.

Opening with ‘Unholy Bestial Fire’, cacophonous madness sprays from the speakers like the aural equivalent of barbed wire. Blackened thrash riffs fight against ragged shrieks and growls for position, with neither losing. The rabid majesty of ‘Nuclear Hammer’ is, frankly, intense as fuck. Abigail are not here to let anyone in easily; no their modus operandi is to destroy everything in site using the nastiest, fastest riffing they can slam together.

Reading from the codex necro, Abigail’s material is about as raw and fast as you can go, and yet it never feels purely one dimensional. Their music always has little doses of melody, even if all it is a thrashing solo ripping through like Kerry King on speed. ‘Far East Black Metal Onsalught’ is self explanatory, but it is also fucking awesome.
