Abyssum – Poizon Of God [Re-Release]

abyssum – poizon of god [re-release]

Info

Independent Finnish record label The Sinister Flame have delved into deepest, darkest Central America (Guatemala to be exact) to unearth a 2008 full length album entitled ‘Poizon of God’ by Black Metal duo Akherra and Rex Ebvleb, known together as Abyssum. In the early part of 2021 TSF re-released said album on both CD and LP.

‘A Cold Whisper Behind the Cosmos’ opens the album with a slow, somewhat brooding synth dark ambient introduction that soon leads more uplifting yet haunting tones. This then opens into the fast paced synth undertone heavy ‘The Sacred Abyss… (of Thelemic Mysteries)’ which sports some mysterious sounding rasped vocals, raw and abrasive guitar leads and a simple drumming style. It isn’t long though before more synth interludes interrupt the flow of moderate aggression, and obsidian serpentine whispered vocals sound out of the darkness. Whilst the basics such as guitar and drums are kept simple, the mystical sounding keyboard tones are dominant and really hold this album up in terms of quality, as do the menacing and lurking vocal work which adds massively to the gloomy, feral vibe this album gives off.

‘Poizon of God’ is a raw, somewhat clunky sounding album but it is laced with bleak charm, swirling atmospheric ambiance and at the end of the day, is pretty listenable. All in all a good find by The Sinister Flame.
