Iceland’s Abominor’s EP Opus: Decay is a two track, 21:29 minute descent into a hellish abyss. Abominor has been around since 2008, released a four track demo in 2010, and finally released the Opus: Decay EP in 2015. This is an excellent short but sweet EP for black metal fans. The two tracks have a totally independent sound that is distinct from the other. The opening track “474” is an unrelenting dystopia of blastbeats and anger that lasts for 12 minutes. The title track Opus: Decay uses a dynamic arsenal of tempo and atmosphere changes. Both tracks are designed around a raw black metal sound that is produced with great quality. There is a lot of heavy bass that is presented on this EP. I look forward to hearing a full length from Abominor. Hopefully they can make an album that uses this hate to its full potential and they do not implode before they can make this happen.
