ABADDON

Abaddon metal mexicano

ABADDON “Abaddon”

Pretty good return of these heavy metal veterans. I’m sure all old mexican metal heads will remember this name along with Crazy Lazy, Linx, Cuero y Metal, Luzbel, etc. because those were the very first heavy metal wave coming out from the aztec underground. In those years the band only released a demo tape wich circulated pretty much at the under live shows, “tocadas” (in Spanish). What I have in my hands is finally a first fucking album, so I was very curious to hear. We find tracks re recorded and re arranged from the demo tape, plus some others I definitely never heard before so I assume is new material. This is strong Heavy metal with class and touches of darkness and gloom. Although I have to say Atenea’s voice doesn’t have nothing to do with the voice of Brenda Marin (original vocalist and who recorded the demo) Hell yeah, call me a fucking old school stinky feet but you have to live and feel heavy metal before you sing in a band. Atenea’s voice sounds very clean and soft (I mean VERY), and this subtracted power to the music. Thats for me and my ears. But I don’t want to spoil the party and say is a bad work.  Absolutely not. Actually I would invite some beers to this beauty before showing her what is all about this so called heavy metal, in my bed room hehe!! I really liked opener “Abaddon”, “Formas del mal” and the full powered “Dueños de la oscuridad”. Again I must say Guitar sound could be better, but if we hear the 25 years old demo… is ok now, old school is not always very audible. A shame they didn’t included “Carne lunar” which was a dark erotic cuasi opera in the demo. Hopefully we hear more material coming from this band in the future. Update: The band is still active and changed vocalist. Now featuring Meg (ex Ruosteinen Avain, ex Bladzam, ex Preludio) – Victor Varas
