Abaddon - Funkin' Murderers

Abaddon were a local death metal band for me during my introduction to metal. Knowing that, it should be no surprise when I say I love this CD. Even in the face of the stupid "thug" interludes in some of the tracks, this CD has always stuck with me. The death metal contained on this disc is pretty damn good in my opinion, being slightly technical (as most was in the mid 90s), but not overwhelmingly so (like it was in the late 90s and early 2000s), and vocally varied, with the vocalist using both high screams and guttural growls.

Anyway, even though I professed my love of this album earlier, I don't really have a lot to say about it. It's not really reinventing the wheel or anything, and most of it's unique elements aren't really worth mentioning (aside from the stupid "thug" rants). Anyway, grab this while it's hot.
