Aberration are a band from Minnesota that plays an atmospheric mixture of war, black, doom and death metal with touches of ambient and drone and this is a review of their self titled ep which will be released in 2021 by Sentient Ruin Laboratories.
A very dark guitar sound starts off the ep before going into a very fast, brutal and dissonant war metal direction which also adds in a great amount of blast beats. Vocals are mostly bestial growls while the tremolo picking gives the music more of a raw feeling and elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs.
At times the music gets very atmospheric sounding while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very dark yet dissonant style along with some elements of ambient and drone also being utilized briefly and towards the end a small amount of black metal screams can also be heard.
Abberation plays a musical style that takes war, atmospheric black and doom/death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover total darkness and oblivion themes.
In my opinion Abberation a re a very great sounding dark and atmospheric mixture of war, black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of t hose musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "III"> 8 out of 10.
