Abest are a four piece band from Goettingen, Germany. Their music is a mixture of post metal and hardcore. ”Asylum” which was released yesterday is their newest release.
”Asylum” contains seven songs. It starts with ”Nebel”, which i think is one of the best songs of this album. ”Oubliette” is a great post metal song. ”Grau” which means grey is a really nice song. I really liked those black metal riffs in my opinion. ”Asylum” is great as well. Loved the black metal parts. Nice basslines also. ”Vessel” comes next and i’m starting to wander if ”Post metal plus hardcore” is sufficient enough to describe the band’s sound. I think the answer is no. There’s so much more in this album. And the listener is discovering it while listening to this album. It’s amazing how good ”Shiver” is. ”Asylum” ends ideally with ”Monolog”, a song that reminded me a bit of Amenra.
Overall this is a great release. The band must know that they have done a terrific job. Really liked the vocals and the album’s production. Nice front cover art also. I think this is one of the best albums this month in my opinion. Fans of Downfall of Gaia, Fall of Efrafa, Alpinist should check this album out. Here are some links about Abest and ”Asylum”:
