A Full Negation of Existence is the new release from German death dealers Abythic. Their new release is five songs of brutalizing and accosting death metal. The old school death metal feeling is coming back and Abythic add their sickening tinge and flavor to the over flowing cauldron of death. Abythic doesn’t dance around the idea of death or beat around the bush at all. A Full Negation of Existence is a straight shot of old school death metal. A Full Negation of Existence is just enough to get you hooked and get you fiending for more, and plenty enough to get you chomping at the bit for more grimy death metal.
There aren’t really any surprises with this release as everything is in the strain of Bolt Thrower, Asphyx and the like; but with noticeable throw backs to those bands, Abythic never copies or mimics anyone. A Full Negation of Existence is their hideous creation, it is their monster to unleash unto the world to wreak havoc and decimate worlds.
There is one element however that Abythic does add comes at the end of each song. At the end of each song is a very operatic and theatric performance. This element adds to the darkness and mystique of Abythic, and really it is the only time that you aren’t getting assaulted from every direction by brutalizing death metal.
Other than the brief operatic moments, the rest of the release is pure bludgeoning death metal. There is no escaping your burial and believe me, you won’t be dead when you get buried. Abythic takes you kicking and screaming and all and shoves you into a dark wooden box only to bury you in a shallow worm filled grave.
For such a short eighteen minute release, you certainly do get everything that death metal has to offer. You get a blood stained platter of buzzing and ripping riffs, gut punching drumming, an eviscerating bass and growls that terrify and burst bowels.
As a matter of fact the entire release is bowel bursting and head roasting. It feasts on your carcass like vultures that rip and tear at road kill. Abythic displays what classic death metal is about, and that is pure unfiltered and raw death metal. Abythic fills you full of hatchet wounds and festering incisions, and really that’s just what you want from old school death.
