ABIGOR – Leytmotif Luzifer (CD)
It has been a very long time, at least it seems since Austria’s black metal enchanters Abigor released an album of new studio material. With new album, “Leytmotif Luzifer” now released upon the masses, it feels like they’ve not lost a beat since where they last left off, which I can note confidently on this seven tracker. The black metal atmospherics along with the apocalyptic-sounding guitars, crushing drum work, and agonized but raspy vocals sound nothing short of pure brilliance in the darkest confines of the mind. This album has its traditional, trademark Abigor haunting atmosphere, as this is a concept album written around the mysteries of Satan and the acquiring of the feelings, which accompany such philosophical worship of the dark side. The seven songs on here brought my skin goose bumps, just from the haunting soundscapes of ill-fated spirits torn from the living and their demonic moans in the background. Listen to this album with a decent pair of headphones and you will be crushed, that’s how the essence of “Leytmotif Luzifer” presents itself on the mysterious highs and lows of the black metal music inferno created by Austria’s finest extreme metal exports, Abigor.
“Ego” is the first of the seven disturbing black metal numbers found here, and its sheer intensity in the absurd and emotionally dejected scenes it creates, you’ll be lying smack down in your own pool of blood, an offering to the goatlord, Lucifer, as you will be the human sacrifice. There are tons of synthesizer-generated atmospherics and nuances on this album, some of which made Summoning an original project, also founded by original Abigor vocalist Silenius. Silenius definitely knows how to show his listeners the darkest of the dark, with Abigor’s abyss inspired black metal music.
Last but not least, Abigor is truly back from the black with wicked-sounding black metal music, and this time they’re going to propagate the very sinister incantations of evil from their latest long player, “Leytmotif Luzifer”, so be prepared for the world’s ungodly demise.
