This is a review of another album from Abstruse which was released the same day as the previous one reviewed and also continues the experimental and avant garde sound of the previous recording while still retaining some black metal roots and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Outer Void-Inner Void".
Dark ambient drones and atmospheric sounds start off the album along with some acoustic guitars and avant garde clean singing a few seconds later which also get more aggressive at times as the album progresses and the distorted parts bring in elements of industrial while also having the heaviness of metal and you can also hear a small amount of grim voices being utilized in the background at times.
Guitars at times bring in a small amount of solos and leads that demonstrate a great amount of talent and skill and just like with the previous recording most of the tracks are very long and epic in length, in certain sections of the recording the vocals bring in a black metal feeling and a lot of the music brings in traces of early 1900's musical genres while they never forget there metal roots.
Dog barking sounds can be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some elements of noise music and with each track the album gets more diverse and original sounding and they also bring in more of a metal sound on this recording than than the previous one reviewed whilr also being very experimental at the same time.
Abstrucs creates another album that is very experimental and avant garde while also having a small amount of black metal as well as being very heavy and adding an industrial influence into their sound to create a very original sounding recording, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover illusion and reality themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Abstruse and if you are a fan of avant garde, experimental and black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Inner Void" "Acid Rain" "Underground" and "Outer Space". 8 out of 10.
