Let me start off by saying that I’m a big fan of black metal. I saw Abigail Williams in concert a few years back, and while they were great performers I found their music to be uninteresting.
Fast forward a few years and I decided to take another look at Abigail Williams – and am I glad that I did. I didn’t hear any recordings from them until I listened to the samples for this CD on Amazon a few days ago, and I found myself compelled to download the CD so I could experience all it had to offer. From start to finish this is an incredible CD. My only gripe is that at times the synth can sound a little too cheesy (don’t get me wrong, some cheese is ok, it just goes a little over the top for my liking a couple of times).
The musical composition on this album is very well constructed, and the drumming is tight. The guitars and synth compliment each other very well and the vocals are what you’d expect from any decent black metal band. The production is great as well. Do yourself a favor – ignore any of these bad reviews and download this CD immediately. You won’t be disappointed.
