Absconder/2010 Demo Review

Absconder are a band from Champaign, Illinois that consists of many death metal veterans and I would describe their style as being old school death metal and this is a review of their 2010 demo.

Drums are mostly midpaced to fast with alot of brutal blast beats and some ocassional slow drumming, while the bass playing has a very heavy and dark tone which follows the riffs that are coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars are mostly midpaced to fast old school death metal riffs that have a thrash edge at times and the ocassional slow riff, while the lead guitars are very classic sounding death metal guitar solos that have a very dark tone to them.

Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls, while the lyrics touch on on dark subjects that are normal for a death metal band, as for the production it has a very dark and raw sound to it.

In my opinion Absconder are a very good old school death metal band that should appeal to all fans of this genre. RECEMMONDED TRACK "Catacombs". RECEMMONDED
