Abhorrent - _Rage_
by: Pedro Azevedo (
This young Brazilian band released their self-financed debut, _Rage_, in late 1996, showing their thrash/power metal sound to the world. The result? Not bad. In fact, some of the tracks on this 35- minute long album, such as "Eternal Doubt" and "The Witch", are rather good. The main problem about Abhorrent is that they suffer from severe deja-vu. I mean, most of us, if not all of us, have listened to stuff very similar to this several years ago. Still, with a good drum/bass sound and a constantly fast style, the album's not bad at all. Abhorrent are good at what they do, but it's nothing really great, and certainly nothing new either.
