ABHORRENCE - TOTALLY VULGAR: LIVE AT TUSKA OPEN AIR 2013

Abhorrence - Totally Vulgar: Live at Tuska Open Air 2013 Good

Svart Records, 10.02.17
In 1989, in an emerging Finnish extreme metal scene, Abhorrence was created. In February 1990 the young men released their first demo, Vulgar Necrolatry, consisting of intro plus three songs. A total of 16 minutes of death metal inspired by Autopsy, Obituary, Bolt Thrower and the like. Five months later, the 7" EP Abhorrence was released, with another 13 minutes in the same alley. The four tracks as well as an instrumental intro therefrom was also released as part of a CD Sampler from Seraphic Decay Records in 1991.

AU CHAMP DES MORTS - DANS LA JOIE

Au Champ des Morts - Dans La Joie Weak

Debemur Morti Productions, 27.01.17
The first release of Au Champ Des Morts, the EP Le jour se lève was warmly received nine months ago. The debut album of the Frenchmen, however, don't impress quite as much. The presence of atmospheric post-metal feels much stronger this time around.
If I were to split post-metal into three subcategories, I'd say you've got idiosyncratic post-metal with strong memorable tunes and hooks, such as Agalloch, introverted and bitter intense post-metal with close ties to dsbm, such as Celeste, and finally generic post-metal. Dans La Joie unfortunately don't fit entirely into the two first categories.
