It’s also with great pleasure we can reveal the first band of Kill-Town Death Fest VII – “The Decompomorphosis” line-up. We are extremely proud to present the first live show outside Finland since 1990 for non-other than the pioneers of Finnish death metal; ABHORRENCE!!!
Abhorrence’s comeback ep “Megalohydrothalassophobic” was released in 2018 to an unsuspecting audience. It received high praise around the world and ended up on Decibel magazine’s top 40 albums of the year -list.
Originally the band lived for a single intense year of brutal old school death. In 1989-1990 the teenagers released one demo and one ep, disbanded, and left a permanent mark in the history of extreme metal. Guitarist Tomi Koivusaari went on to make a different kind of impact in the history of metal music with Amorphis.
In 2012 Svart Records released the old Abhorrence material as a compilation titled “Completely Vulgar”, re-igniting the band’s heritage and cult status. The following year Abhorrence reformed to play live again. The unapologetic shows were extremely well received. Svart recorded one and released it as the live album “Totally Vulgar – Live at Tuska Open Air 2013”.
The old lineup was joined by the young drummer Waltteri Väyrynen of Paradise Lost fame in 2016. Abhorrence in its present form was ready and the result is recorded on “Megalohydrothalassophobic”. Musically it is a deep dive into psychedelic death metal and lyrically an exploration of philosophical horror at the age of the ecological catastrophe.
2019 marks the thirty year anniversary of the band and sees Abhorrence as vital as ever.
Abhorrence is yet to release a full length album. But stranger things have happened than a classic Finnish death metal band to be working on their first album after thirty decades, full of energy and vision.
