  • Description

    Perhaps now assuming their ultimate and ghastliest form, ABSTRACTER return with their most astonishingly telluric, bleak, and hopeless album to date.

    On their third and brand new LP, “Cinereus Incarnate”, the Oakland CA blackened doom destroyers unravel a blood-curdling sonic tale about a wretched world cursed to eternal twilight where reality is torn to pieces and existence is reduced to the final stages of survival. Taking form through a deluge of suffocating distortion and dismal atmospheres that defies any categorization, ABSTRACTER have created an hallucinatory and apocalyptic work that oozes with an immanent and oppressive sense of defeat and of unravelling hope, fusing together crust, black, doom, death metal, and cancerous strains of noise, drone, and dark ambient to summon a soul-crushing sonic cataclysm of utter misery and despair.

    "Cinereous Incarnate" sees ABSTRACTER move further away from their origins and experiment even more with drone, dark ambient, noise, black and death metal, while also vastly enhancing their primordial pool of influences centered around Corrupted’s slow-moving crushing doom nihilism, Amebix’s apocalyptic end-times crust, and Godflesh’s cold and dissonant crush-depth. At the core of the earth-shaking sonic annihilation of the album lies however an even vaster and intelligible plethora of influences ranging from Blut Aus Nord, Dystopia, Swans, Disembowelment, to Skullflower, Winter, Khanate and Celtic Frost which ABSTRACTER have coerced together to erect an obsidian black wall of monstrous sound that levitates out of solid darkness crushing and devouring everything in its path.

    With its ghastly atmospheres choked in noisy dark ambience and its colossal progressions of shapeshifting black / death / doom, “Cinereus Incarnate” is a catastrophic listen that unifies every concept of sonic oppression imaginable, conjuring the same antihuman and incredibly wretched overtones as seen in bands like Dragged Into Sunlight, Indian, Primitive Man, Krypts, Coffinworm, Triptykon etc.

    Recorded and mixed by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer Studios (Vastum, Undergang, Acephalix, Autopsy, Graves At Sea, Noothgrush etc.) in Oakland CA, with drums captured by Ben Hirschfield at Nu-Tone in Pittsburg CA, and mastered at Audiosiege in Portland OR by Brad Boatright (Nails, Wolfbrigade, Full of Hell, Vallenfyre etc), the monstrous album comes with an appallingly dense, layered, and oppressive production and features haunting dark ambient soundscapes and noise contributions by Sutekh Hexen's own visual/noise luminary Kevin Gan Yuen (who also curated the album’s grandiose and apocalyptic art) and by San Francisco-based dark industrial musician Only Now - an unholy alliance which has yielded a sonic behemoth unlike anything else with an absolutely annihilating and otherworldly sound.
