Abyssus – Into the Abyss

No Image Available

OK, so imagine this: Trevor Peres and his friends from Obituary decide to move from Florida to Greece in order to form a new band, mixing the feeling of their new home and some ancient European war history with their trademark sound. That’s Abyssus! With some (very good) EPs and splits already on their curriculum, the Greek trio (vocalist Kostas Analytis, guitarist Panos Gkourmpaliotis and bass-player Kostas Ragiadakos) presents us with their first full length, released by Spanish underground label Memento Mori. Although you can immediately recognize a very strong Obituary influence, Abyssus also includes their own personal style, with very-well written and structured songs, which captures our attention from the beginning, making us wish for more material once we reach the end of the album. “Across the Fields of Death” and “Intent to Kill” are some of the highlights, with “Revenge” as my personal favourite. If you love Obituary and the flavour of old-school Florida Death Metal, you can’t go wrong with this band! (Antonio)
