Since its inception, the Black Metal genre has known countless trends and tendencies, but there will always be bands, considered true legends, that have stayed away from any trend and keept it true to their sound and principles. ABHORER is one of these myths!!
From Singapore, and when most of the Black/Death bands were still unborn childs, this satanic foursome was already terrorizing the underground with their 1st demo in ‘89, after that with a 7”EP released in ‘93 to reach the highest peak on their career with their only album released in ‘96.
“Unholy Blasphemer” gathers these three recordings to re-discover for the new generations what are we talking about when we do mention the term TRUE Unholy Black/Death Metal. Pure cult!! (enough said).
Another review from Xtreem Music's Xtreem Cult Series, which is turning out to be a hell of an imprint, releasing FUNEBRE's Children of the Scorn and with plans for many more old gems in the works. Singapore's ABHORER gets the treatment this time, with the disc including the 1996 Zygotical Sabbatory Unabapt album plus the Upheaval Of Blasphemy 7" and the unfortunately-named Rumpus Of The Undead 1989 demo.
A relatively obscure, yet heralded act by those who are aware of them, ABHORER play chaotic death/black metal akin to bands like IMPIETY, BEHERIT and BLASPHEMY, though a bit more cohesive than the latter two. As is to be expected, the sound on the LP is much cleaner than the 7" and demo, and the material is more refined. It is interesting to listen back to the band, to hear how they progressed yet still retained their chaotic edge. The 7" material almost sounds like a live-in-the-studio recording, though I don't know if it is. With the Rumpus of the Dead demo, it sounds even MORE live and, thus, even more chaotic.
With the resurgence of popularity of bands like the aforementioned BEHERIT and BLASPHEMY, plus new acts like REVENGE and BLACK WITCHERY, Xtreem have a very timely release on their hands, and one that fans of the genre new and old will find sits nicely in their collections.
Abhorer fueron para Singapur lo que Sarcófago para Latinoamérica: la banda decana de protervo black death . Han tenido que celebrarse sus exequias y los sucesivos aniversarios de su óbito para acaparar el interés que siempre merecieron. Ahora que lo que se lleva en el underground metálico más salvaje es el war - metal , toca tributar a las bandas más injustamente ignoradas. No es el caso de esta colección que contiene todas las grabaciones del grupo: su único álbum, su aclamado siete pulgadas y su también legendaria maqueta. Música de mínimos que representa el cenit de una de las escenas más excitantes e infravaloradas del planeta. El caos irrepetible de unos años irremplazables, concebido y librado por mentes a las que su hábitat y su genética encauzaron para registrar una reducido número de clásicos que son puro y puto culto.
