ABHORRENT: New Track Featuring Guest Appearance By The Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad Playing At Metal Injection; Intransigence Release Day Draws Near


It’s a fast and furious bloodbath of a track, yet it allows occasionally brutal and dissonant detours to break up the overall hyper-active onslaught.” – Metal Injection on ABHORRENT‘s The Elegance Of Asymmetry”

With Intransigence, the scathing debut from San Antonio death metallers ABHORRENT inching ever closer to official detonation, today Metal Injection spews forth the smoldering sounds of “The Elegance Of Asymmetry,” featuring guest vocals by The Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad, for public disruption at THIS LOCATION.

Comments Metal Injection of the band’s latest single, “The song wastes no time in showcasing the exceptional talents of all their members in twisted and complicated fashion. It’s a fast and furious bloodbath of a track, yet it allows occasionally brutal and dissonant detours to break up the overall hyper-active onslaught. As if all that wasn’t enough, ‘The Elegance Of Asymmetry’ also features a guest vocal spot by Trevor Strnad.”

ABHORRENT – who feature within their ranks current and former members of Spawn Of Possession, Absurdist and The Faceless – was formed in 2007 by guitarist Marlon Friday and drummer Lyle Cooper. In 2009, a three-song demo was released before the band went on an indeterminate hiatus while members focused on other projects. In 2014, vocalist Nick Brown and bassist Erlend Caspersen joined and the band entered Sound Crater Recording to record their Intransigence debut. Boasting a wealth of riff-variations and athletic rhythmic assaults, Intransigence is like the unprincipled, violent force of nature, realizing itself through pure will and power.

Slated for release last this month via Willowtip Records, Intransigence was engineered, mixed and mastered by Mike Garrison at Sound Crater Recording with guitar and bass reamps by Greg Tomao at The Tomato Farm Studio and includes guest appearances by the Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), Malcolm Pugh (Inferi, A Loathing Requiem), Matthew “Chalky” Chalk (Mephistopheles, ex-Psycroptic) and Antonio Ascencio (Serocs).

If you missed it, sample the maniacal conjurings of “A Lightness Of Mind” featuring “Chalky” still streaming at No Clean Singing at THIS LOCATION. You can also check out third bruiser, “Ifrit,” where you will also find various preorder options, at THIS LOCATION.

ABHORRENT‘s Intransigence will see release via Willowtip Records on November 20th, 2015.

“It booms, squirms, jabs, rocks, and rends with razor-edged claws. It’s both nimble and neolithic, tangled and tortuous, somersaulting and sinister. Capped by barbarous vocals, the music is technically jaw-dropping (and produced in a way that you can fully appreciate each performer’s skill) yet as vicious as death metal should be.” – No Clean Singing
