Absorb – Vision Apart (2015)

Absorb play a brand of technical groove/death and Vision Apart shows that they’re certainly headed somewhere. That being said, it’s not very thick and seems to prefer a more celestial approach to the guitars. It just feels like an intelligent brand of the genre, and that is NOT a bad thing. Please don’t let anyone tell you that it is, because even Death moved in that direction eventually and no one’s complaining there. Or at least, they’d better not. To be exact, I’m even hearing some proggy Death influence in the leads of opener “Perfect Whore” (2:56) which makes me think that this whore came from space. She might have, if she’s perfect and all. Sounds like something I’d write. In any case, “Los Muertos De Hambre” (3:58) actually includes some clean vocal sections which I wasn’t expecting from a band of this nature before. They’re not bad actually and show a lot of promise. That of course, going for both the band and the clean vocal sections. Both seem to show a lot of promise. “Undead” (5:07) changes gears and goes right into gore/death seamlessly. Absorb seems to do whatever the hell they want and I’m certainly glad for it. At least someone else is thinking out of the box when it comes to music. I hope this project continues.
