In hebrew, Abraham means ‘father of all folks’; he’s supposed to be the tribal father of Israel, but also of the Arabs. In Swiss, Abraham is simply one of the hottest post/doom metal bands around to date. Their magnum opus Look, Here Comes The Dark! is scheduled for May 11th, and comes as a double LP featuring more than two hours of playtime in total!
The record is divided into four parts, telling an intricate story line all throughout. As the band states on the new single “Wind”:
Check out “Wind” below!
Musically, “Wind” starts with wind noises, while suspensive synthesizers come in and branch out into a very doomy atmosphere. A tambourine, paired with the drums, delivers folk-esque vibes while the harsh vocals come in. The whole ambiance built on “Wind” is so dense, heavy and depressing, as one simply drowns in the wall of sound. The whole song remains in this slow-paced tempo, the instruments focusing on delivering an ambience rather than riffing. Abraham is yet another proof of the good work over at Pelagic!
Fans of bands like Cult Of Luna, ISIS, The Ocean, or Wolves In The Throne Room will have a very high contender for their AOTY in Abraham‘s Look, Here Comes The Dark!. Make sure to grab your copy and follow Abraham on their Facebook page! You can pre-order the upcoming record on the band’s Bandcamp, which you should do when you’re into supporting great music!
