Abscendent are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of both the modern and old school styles of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Decaying Human Condition" which was released by Revalve Records.
Sci fi sounds starts off the album before adding in death metal growls which also takes the music into more of a modern thrash metal direction that also uses a great amount of melodic riffing and a small amount of blast beats and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic and technical musical direction and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the y also mix both the classic and modern styles of metal together and the last couple of tracks also brings in a brief use of clean playing.
Abscendent plays a musical style that takes the 90's style of death/thrash metal and mixes it in with the more modern and technical side of t he genre along with a touch of groove metal to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, sorrow, mental illness and psychology themes.
In my opinion Abscendent are a very great sounding modern mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Solipsa" and "Nausea". 8 out of 10.
