Demo MMXII Cover Art

Abest is a Sludge Metal Band from Göttingen, Germany

The members are

Joscha - Guitar/Vocals
David - Guitar
Patrick - Bass
Tim - Drums 

Tim used to be part of brilliant Sludge Metallers Head Of The Taurus who have sadly split up. Well he is now part of Abest who deliver their own brand of hard hitting Sludge Metal.

This is heavy from the word go. Abest mix Sludge, Hardcore and Post-Metal to brutal effect that will last long in the memory. If you want heavy pounding Atmospheric Sludge Metal with bleak hardcore vocals to match then Abest is the band for you.

They have just released their superb debut release - Demo 2012 – A 4 song 20 minute blast of top-notch Sludge/Post-Metal riffs that will have you hooked from the word go.

The opening riffs of opening track “Solando” had me hooked and kept me enthralled to the very end. Its full of sublime Sludge metal riffs with great vocals to match. A great start to a great release.

Up next is “Distant Hands Longing”. Another outstanding track which shows what this great band can do. Blending Sludge Metal with great Post-Rock/Post-Metal vibes aided along by superb vocals to match.

The other two tracks “Into Grey” and “The Fall” are other great tracks to make this a brilliant EP from a great band to keep an eye out for.

If your into the usual big hitters of Sludge/Post-Metal then Abest is the band for you. I am a bit saddened that Head Of The Taurus. Have split up but another brilliant band has risen from the ashes and they are a band I want to hear more of in the future.

The EP is expertly produced for a demo release and I recommend you check Abest right now. As you can download this excellent EP from their BandCamp Page On Pay Anything You Want Type Deal.

Highly Recommended.
