Abjvration are a band from France that plays an old school mixture of death and doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "The Unquenchable Pyre" which was released on cassette by Caligari Records.
Distorted sounds start off the ep and after a few seconds guitar riffs are added into the music and they also use melodies at times and they also add in the sounds of people suffering before going into a very heavy doom metal direction and adding death metal growls into the music and the songs also have a very dark feeling.
Most of the songs are very heavily rooted in an early 90's doom metal sound and the solos and leads also stick to a very dark, melodic and old school style when they are utilized and you can also hear a brief use of screams and chants in some of the tracks and when the music speeds up brutal blast beats are added onto the recording.
Abjvration plays a style of death/doom metal and avoids any of the modern trends of the last 20 or more years, the production sounds very dark, heavy and old school while the lyrics cover darkness. death and anti religion themes.
In my opinion Abjvration are a very great sounding old school mixture of death and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Dessicated Womb" and "The Clawed Redeemer". 8 out of 10.
