I don’t recall ever hearing the name Aborym mentioned before so I’m assuming that they’re a new band. If that is the case, then this is a really well put together debut album! The addition of Attila Csihar (yes, that Attila!) as a guest vocalist really upped my expectations. For the most part, this is atmospheric Black Metal in the vein of Emperor or Cradle of Filth but with a distinct sound that hints at the other bands yet really sounds nothing like them. There are a lot of different ideas thrown around here and for the most part, they all work really well. The sound on this CD is fucking excellent and the only disappointment was in some of the faster tracks where the snare started drowning things out. Oh yeah, the Moonspell riff (it sounds blatantly like “Alma Mater” except that they changed the last part a little bit) also caught my attention. Other than that, this album kicks some major ass and has been firmly affixed to my CD player for quite a while now. Look for it!!!
