Abythic - Beneath Ancient Portals

Label : Blood Harvest | Archive under death metal / grindcore

Release type: Full-length CD

René : Abythic is from Germany and plays a form of doomy old school death metal. In 2015 they released their first demo 'A Full Negation Of Existence' and that demo already showed this is not a band to take lightly. It is rumoured that several labels were knocking on Abyhtic's door and it's Swedish label Blood Harvest that finally put the ink under a contract. And this is a good thing, because this album is so damn nice it would have been a shame if his was never released. Of course we cannot expect any new elements but the whole thing is so good it reminds me of mid-period Bolt Thrower and even some Asphyx. If I wouldn't know any better I would swear these guys stepped in a time machine at the end of the eighties and just popped out recently. It's got it all, good tracks, nice grunting vocals, doomy basslines, deadly guitar riffing, pounding drums and a great thick sound. I haven't found any YouTube link but do check out this bandcamp link.
