When I first picked up this album, I thought to myself, “Oh no, another cheesy Satanic-as-fuck Black Metal band that couldn’t afford real cover art so they stole something from an old comic book.” I bought it anyway, being fully aware that sometimes you get greatness in shitty packaging. What I got was ugly. And brutal. And Satanic. In other words, a really good Black / Death Metal album. Abaddon Incarnate sounds more akin to Incantation mixed with a little Necrotism-era Carcass and the horror movie samples of Mortician thrown in for good measure. There is a definite Grind influence amidst the churning, down-tuned guitar assault and the vocals are low but not monotone. The Last Supper isn’t for people who like lots of melody and artsy shit thrown in with their Death Fucking Metal. This is from the older school of Death, where brutality was mixed with being memorable and the whole thing was designed to make you headbang so hard that you dislocated your skull.
