Black Mass of Absu - _Black Mass of Absu_
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 5)
Heavily loaded down with obscure noise and pummeling slabs of heaviness, the music of doom/ambient/noise band Black Mass of Absu is a deadly concoction delivered with brutal force. It's full of growls of anger and delivered so to-the-point that it manages to get under your skin quite easily, crushing you beneath the weight and gargantuan assault of noises and screams. While the music might be powerful, I feel that the music lacks some creativity and ideas within it, managing to always deliver the same kind of expression and emotions to each song. Not monotonous sounding, rather a sometime lackluster performance in some areas of this demo. In short: the music drags on in places. Besides that, it is overall a good demo that proves that ambient/noise music can be just as heavy as any grindcore record could be.
