Abhorrence

Abhorrence was the pre-Amorphis band of Tomi Koivusaari, and there are few Death Metal eps from the early '90s that can top this one. All the fuzzy hiss, staccato blasts, and low end knuckle drag is present and accounted for in just four outstanding tracks. Absolutely mandatory.

WOWEEE! Thanks for sharin! I was listening to Tales from a Thousand Lakes the other day and missing this era's sound. I'll always be an Amorphis fan but this stuff is classic!

You weren't kidding, this is a sick little package. I've already played it 4 times today. The ladies across from my studio having a birthday lunch thank you.

Agree with you 100% on this one, bro. I don't really know what's going on on this record, but I do know that's it's wonderfully Finnish. This is absolutely unfuckwithable.

But... Nuclear Blast can't possibly have any rights to this material? I love this, and I don't even like death metal.

This might be my favorite DM 7" of all time. Such a great, crushing, beautiful sound...
