Roel de Haan : This particular Abduction is from the UK and this ‘To Further Dreams Of Failure’ is their debut record. Abduction plays black metal in an old-fashioned style. Think of Darkthrone, Inquisition and perhaps Mayhem. There is room for some melody in the riffing that contains a certain sadness, which makes this album slightly more than just exercise in trueness. The production is quite raw and trebly but not painfully so and won’t pose problem for real black metal fans. ‘To Further Dreams Of Failure’ is decent album for its intent and purpose but however clearly sincere, the material isn’t invigorating enough for it to rise above merely enjoyable.
