Rising: Abominor

Danish band Rising are back with their follow-up to 2011's To Solemn Ash, titling this one Abominor. Crusty, sludge laden metal is the best way to describe the music of's not quite death metal, way too fast for doom, and much heavier than your average punk, but it has elements of all these styles. Abominor motors along at a speedy pace, its 40 minutes filled with satisfying, if underwhelming songs like "Reproach", "Vengeance is Timeless", and "Leech" (my personal favorite of the bunch). Kind of like a weird marriage of early Mastodon, Amon Amarth, and Motorhead, Abominor rumbles along, delivering some cool sludgey riffs, decent lead lines, and lots of ravaged vocal wails that provide some heavy moments, but ultimately just isn't quite impressive enough to really differentiate it from the many releases this year that are trying to do something similar. Good, not great, but worth checking out for sure.
