Abominator - Damnations Prophecy

1999 Necropolis Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-08-11

I've been putting this review off for quite a bit, most of the reason being that I never really wanted to throw it in the player, always finding something else first that I wanted to review. Well, it's the 11th hour, and I'd better find something to say about this pretty damn quick, so, here goes... Much like an essay question, Abominator state what they intend to do (destroy everything considered "holy" by a certain group called Christians), sonically accomplish this, (the album is raw, brutal, and honest to its black metal roots), and finally, recap everything that just happened (with a nice organ outro). Final grade? definitely an A for effort, but I'd have to have Abominator take the time to recopy some of their material for that gold star. Yeah, it's fast, it's unholy, it's ugly, but I don't really like it. There do seem to be two schools of thought on this, one being that you have to record things in a cave to keep it "real", but I think that as we reach new levels in technology, it's cool to move forward as well. One could compare this to only using tube amplifiers to make a stoner rock record, and I guess that's valid, yet when these records are put out this way, a lot of them tend to sound the same. The mighty desecrators don't pretend to be anything else though, gotta hand them that. So while I'd rather throw in something else, maybe you're from that school of which I spoke.
