We have another metal album of the year candidate right here. California's Abstracter releases the fury on their third full-length album, 'Cinereous Incarnate'. With each of their three albums, they continuously get darker, faster, doomier, and more evil sounding than the last. On album opener, "Nether", they mesh all the elements that define their sound and deliver a near 10 minute crushing track. Heavy on the doom element, "Ashen Reign" is my favorite track on the album. Album closer, "Devouring Night" is like a freight train of terror, crashing into your ears and causing as much cerebral damage as possible. This one is a banger for sure!
