Kizin – Abstraction (2018)

Kizin
Release date: July 17th, 2018
Label: Independent

Well I finally got around to reviewing this, as a few readers have sent me messages to look into this band and believe me I should of gotten around to it earlier as this is a superb release from last year.

So if you never heard of them they are a progressive death metal band and a excellent one! if you like later Pestilence this might be your cup of tea.

But to the album the first track Crystal Palace really gets things rolling as this is pretty much a heavy track that just sets the mood of this trip this album will take you on and a whole new approach as the lyrics are based on Existentialism which brings a new flavor to things, it continues on The Exanimate and the Movement and the leads on here are a delight to the ears.

Things change a bit on Dreaming Beyond the Darkness, this one a bit more on the prog side of things but still a good one as the lyrics really go well here.Introspection takes us on to another phase as it’s a instrumental with a deep feeling to it then we get back into it as Awakening from Deep has a pounding drive to it and the way it’s composed really shines as it has some great moments here especially near the end as it just takes you away.Enfleshed Vitality is probably one of my favorite tracks on here as it has so many breaks that it kept me focused on what was going on has a lot of feeling to it.The Voice of Silence is a long opus that you will have to hear as there is a bit of everything in it, as this is a long album that runs over an hour I listened to the rest and it’s a solid release if your into this kind of stuff.

Abstraction, the title and final track is a superb gem to close this out, I would tell you to give it a listen and have an open mind as this could be huge if only the world would know who they are, since this was released it has been put on tape and cd so if you want a physical copy check the band’s Facebook page.
