Hailing from Germany is Absorb, and their brand new march toward death is titled Vision Apart. These German death dealers stick to strictly death metal as you won’t find them lurking in any other genres for the most part. Vision Apart is filled with four tracks of blasting and pummeling death metal that you can bang your head to with ease and without really needing to think about it. Each track on this release gets your head nodding feverishly within the first couple seconds and the album as a whole keeps your head nodding and your neck snapping for its entirety.
Vision Apart begins with a track titled Perfect Whore, which is the shortest but one of the fastest tracks on the release. Perfect Whore blasts out of your speakers immediately with blasting drums, grizzly roars and slashing riffs, bashing your brain in for just under three minutes. Each track that follows Perfect Whore is just as grizzly and mauling as they seem to come at you knives drawn ready to let your blood.
Each of the four songs that are present on this release are pretty solid. Each track provides you with solid musicianship and vocals and the overall production is clean as well providing you with an overall enjoyable and head bang worthy listen. Absorb doesn’t take too much time messing around either as they get right in to the meat of each track nearly immediately gifting you with nothing but four straight heavy death metal songs that gets your neck cranking from the get go.
Vision Apart is a straight up death metal record. There aren’t any frills, no gimmicks and it isn’t over done either. While this release isn’t something that is ground breaking or mind blowing, it still is a rumbling death machine that is nothing about pure death and decimation. What Absorb does is play some great straight up death metal that is bound to get your head banging whether you want to or not. If you are a fan of death metal and like your death straight up and pummeling, Vision Apart is a release that would find its way to your collection.
