Abinchova are a band from Switzerland that plays a mixture of folk and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Weltenwanderer" which will be released in March by Massacre Records.
An epic sounding intro along with some spoken word parts start off the album along with some stringed instruments a few seconds later and also mix in with the heavier sections of the songs which also uses a great amount of melody while the screams also add in a touch of black metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while blast beats can also be heard at times along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic fashion and when keyboards are utilized they also gives the music more of a symphonic feeling.
Female vocals are also added into some parts of the songs and they also add in more of a goth and operatic feeling while the tracks also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the music also mixing in a great amount of melodic death metal elements and as the album progresses a brief use of growls can also be heard and one track also brings in a small amount of acoustic guitars.
Abinchova plays a musical style that takes folk and melodic black/death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Swiss and cover Swiss Mythology and Folklore themes.
In my opinion Abinchova are a very great sounding mixture of folk, melodic death and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Weltenwanderer" "Eulemann" "Pestwind" and "Sennenpuppe". 8/5 out of 10.
