Rating: 9 Oh. My. Fucking. God. This is incredible music. The first record I listen to of 2013 could potentially be the best.

Listen to track 3 on their Bandcamp. This stuff makes Portal sound like mellow. The riffs on track 5 could be taken from a Blut aus Nord record as well.

Oh my God, track 6... how can music sound so incredible and dissonant?!

  This is out of this world. Holy fuck.
Pazdzioch - 02.01.2013 at 00:21  
  I listen to it now... It sounds amazing and for free download!

Rating: 9 This is one really amazing record.
We're in for a great year if this is a sign of things to come.
Created Sick is just incredible.

Rating: 8 Hmm, I just ordered this album today, but I also own their debut, which I wasn't too big on. Hopefully this will be better

It's a different league. The sound and approach on this is so perfectly punishing and confident it may as well be a different band. I doubt you'll regret your purchase.

  Yes, unfucking believable how intense and sick this god damn record is. I just bought the CD in addition to the free download. Holy jumping jesus on a fucking stick this is awesome!

just download it for free and test run it before you buy. or just listen on bandcamp to see if you will like it. this one hit me like a ton of bricks in the face. instant 'fuck yes'.

  You can dl it for free from Bandcamp... O.o

  For those curious about the title: "Indeed, the Lord recognized [those who are] his own" - a reference to the final judgement and the parting of the right-hand sheep and the left-hand goats.

I might also be a reference to Arnaud Amalric and his well known phrase at one of the crusades: Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius (Kill them all. For the Lord knoweth them that are His.)

It is, in fact, both! Since Arnaud Amalric was referring to the Christians being killed on behalf of the siege against the albigensian/cathars.

  Damn... what the ef did I just listen to?
Abyssal just owned all of the "post-death" stuff I've ever heard. So incredibly foreboding.

Rating: 9 Listened to it once this day. I need more spins before fully grasping the atmosphere but this is excellent for sure.

Rating: 9 This album is like degenerating into an echo chamber of hostility.
IronAngel - 22.02.2013 at 23:14  
  I don't know. If the production wasn't so tasty and all-consuming, it would be a fairly boring affair. Can't say I've come back to it much now that other stuff has been released. But I've got to admit, the sheer immensity of the sound is awesome.

Perfect summary. Shit is pure unadulterated evil. Very different for me. I love it when I find something good in other areas of music I'm not familiar with.
theFIST - 24.02.2013 at 22:35  
  Awesome
even with the new Portal out this probably is the best portalesque death metal album of the year
not quite up to swarth standards, but incredibly close

Rating: 9 It's March 5, and it's still one of the best stuff I've heard this year.

  The CD is being released in shops on April 1st. I missed my opportunity to buy the CD from Bandcamp but now I can get it.
musicalkaratekid - 29.05.2013 at 16:47  
Rating: 7 The sound on this album is generally depressive and brooding, but with an extremely dark tone and overbearing heaviness courtesy of the guitar work. For me the instrumentals running under a minute cut the flow of the album and the vocals appear to be buried too much into the mix, but with excellently structured songs such as 'The headless serpent' and quite brilliant instrumental 'Created sick; Commanded to be well' Abyssal seem to be firing on all cylinders with this album. Perhaps next time the band could forget about putting those sub-minute instrumentals into the finished product.

If it's gone it was probably picked by J.N. who has a habit of deleting things

yes it was picked by J.N and the description was "Aevangelist+Blut Aus Nord+Portal=Abyssal"
psykometal - 19.07.2013 at 02:21  
  Yea, his constant deleting of Staff picks, comments and shouts can get rather frustrating and annoying at times...
