Abstract Spirit - _Tragedy and Weeds_
(Solitude Productions, 2009)
by: Quentin Kalis (8 out of 10)
Rumour has it that not only do they share members with Comatose Vigil, they are also responsible for the ultra-mysterious "American" unit Ea. True or not, it's not hard to see why this rumour would emerge, as all three perform a similar brand of monolithic, simplistic yet highly effective funeral doom. There are differences between the bands -- for example, Ea is more grandiose and epic -- but their similarities outweigh the differences by a considerable margin. Abstract Spirit ploughs the same furrow as their debut, with heavy, lumbering riffs, elementary song structures, guttural growls and mainly background keys upping the oppressive and claustrophobic feel. The song writing is a bit more focused, the sound is a tad better, but no seismic shifts, nothing beyond the level of tweaking and touching up. If you have heard any of the aforementioned bands, you know what to expect, and if you enjoyed any of them, this is unlikely to disappoint.
