Son of Abyss by Abisso: Album Review
Intense, eerie, unsettling, poetic, and beautiful in its melancholy, Abisso’s Debut release, Son of Abyss will send chills down your spine.
This ten-track experimental album gives the listeners an immersive experience in its dark ambiance. Although minimalist in nature, saying this album is intense would be a huge understatement. Each song has its own individual mood and tone that creates a concept album setting in continuation. EryaV and D’avy have composed and arranged the songs in such a theatrical way that some of these songs would easily fit as a horror movie soundtrack, especially the title track. The piano and sometimes the violins convey the intensity of the emotions in relatively very few notes over the airy pads and drones used to create the dark atmospheric effects.
The lo-fi crackling sounds and vocal samples in some of the songs is also a nice touch and add character to the sound. One would especially appreciate the poetic melancholy of the tracks Veined Death, Subliminal Whisper and Malik. The album comes full circle with the ending song, Soul Esalation. This song is like the last chapter of a book where the mysteries unfold. It’s really incredible how they convey so much emotion and tells a story without saying a word with such a minimalist style of music.
