Album: Abscess – Tormented

Abscess - Tormented

It’s sad when members of particularly interesting or groundbreaking bands form a new project, and then only produce mediocre outputs. Abscess contains people who played in Death and Autopsy, so you would expect a fair amount from them.

Tormented is played precisely, and it’s recorded and produced very well, with a nice, gritty Death Metal sound. And that’s just about all the good things I have to say about it.

Don’t get me wrong, the songs are enjoyable enough. The songwriting is reasonable, but rather uninspired. But ultimately, the songs on this record are utterly unmemorable, and not easily distinguished from each other.

Ah, well. That makes yet another record I can sort out.
