Hot New Band: Abhorrent Decimation
The sky’s the limit for scholarly extremists Abhorrent Decimation.
Extreme music has infiltrated mainstream metal.
Vicious riffing, harsh vocals and vein-popping aggression are now integral to huge swathes of heavy music’s portfolio, which means death metal bands such as London’s Abhorrent Decimation stand a decent chance of escaping the underground. It helps that new album Miasmic Mutation is a subtly accessible dose of brutality that oozes crossover potential.
“Seeing it take form was incredible,” says frontman Ashley Scott. “The direction had gone a lot darker than I was expecting, which I was delighted about. We’ve created something special and I still beam with the joy of that.”
