Meine Güte, da hat sich was getan im Hause ABEST! Immer noch massiv wie eine Wand aus Stahl und Teer, aber sind das etwa angedeutete Melodien da in diesem Wust aus hochhaushoch getürmten Gitarren? Tut der Sache auf jeden Fall sehr gut, für Freunde von Godflesh, Primitive Man, Neurosis, Carcass, Mass Worship, runtergestimmte, dissonante, aber dennoch irgendwie groovige Wut, groovig hier im Sinne von unendlich schiebend und drückend. Nicht funky. Kollabo mit MOMENT OF COLLAPSE!

Germany's ABEST are a band that is pushing the limitations typically associated with post metal with the release of their second full length "Bonds Of Euphoria". It is an indispotable reaffirmation of their sound, a masterful stew of metal and hardcore. Undeniably precise and heavy. Produced by Jan Oberg of Hidden Planet Studio (Downfall Of Gaia, Deathrite) "Bonds Of Euphoria" features guest appearances by longtime friends Ghaliz Haris, Fabian van Beek (Gall) and Michel of the Band Reka.

Founded in late 2011, ABEST released their debut full length "Asylum" in May 2014 via This Charming Man Records. "Asylum" sounded like a wrecking ball, slowly but steadily hovering towards the torn and rotten walls of civilisation, inspired by early Isis or Neurosis. After playing shows with Hope Drone, Buried At Sea, Svalbard or Red Apollo, the band released a new 12" EP called "Last" in June 2016 followed by touring all over central Europe.

While "Asylum" took a more melodic approach on the classic post metal sound, "Last" sounded raw and less atmospheric, taking a step forward in both songwriting and heavyness. After a several line-up changes, ABEST continue as a three piece, now focusing on a more excessive and precise sound which can be described as brutal yet gloomy post metal. "Bonds Of Euphoria" was written over the period of one year whilst sharing stages with Sun Worship, Phantom Winter and Reka.

For fans of Cult Leader, Dead In The Dirt and Primitive Man.
