Bubbling up from the rotting crust of the death metal underground comes Poland’s own, Abominated. Emerging from the soil with them comes their debut demo titled Decomposed. This release offers four tracks that total to a run time of a concise nine minutes. Abominated’s sound firmly flows through the elder vein of death metal where through this demo you come to hear a gritty and grime filled death metal sound. As tried and true as this sound is, Abominated still carve out their own signature death metal hymns that are particular to them. And as short as this offering is with it being a demo, Abominated more than make up for the length with pure, brutalizing and blood letting stampedes of death.
Abominated begin their demo with a short yet haunting intro that sets the stage for the remaining three tracks that are to follow. Each track that comes after the intro is a blistering, skin peeling and blood boiling death metal march. Through this demo you come across nothing but pure death metal as there are no other sounds that Abominated incorporate that could muddy the traditional sound. Each track-save for the intro-is as nasty and neck snapping as you would imagine and want it to be. Abominated don’t hold anything back here with Decomposed as the entire offering is a bloodied, gnarled and life straining effort that does its best to leave you cleaved in two before all is said and done.
With gut slicing riffs, skull caving drum work and hellish vocals, Abominated provide you with an overall caustic and face melting sound. After the intro, Abominated barrels through your speakers at a whiplash and heart attack inducing rate. Never does this death horde relent or cease their aural assault until your ear drums have finally burst. This offering is straight up, pure, raw and savage death metal that gets your head banging nearly immediately until it severs from your spine.
Overall, Decomposed is a very solid demo as it offers up a complete and destructive sound that is undeniable. Abominated hits the nail on the head here with this release and from here on it will be great to see what they have to offer in the future.
