Abated 2014Brutal Grindcore band Abated Mass of Flesh have posted a new song ‘Iniquitous Decimation’. The song comes off their upcoming album “The Omen King” which will be released June 10th. via Rottweiler Records. The song can be streamed in the clip below.

Beginning as a solo act by Zack Plunkett in the summer of 2011, Abated Mass of Flesh initially gained attention after the release of the first EP “Moth and Rust in the Temple of Putridity.” Since then, Abated Mass of Flesh have steadily been working their way through the underground. In February of 2012, Zack began writing for a second EP titled “Brutal Death.” He later added his brother Matthew Plunkett to the project to take over on lead vocals. In May, the duo signed with Rottweiler Records Continue reading »

Omen KingCombine an unreadable band logo and disturbing imagery and just from the looks you can guess this album may contain some frightening content, even going into it knowing the band members are Christian doesn’t help lessen the apprehension.  Then again the band’s name, once translated from the death metal alphabet, does have that warm, fuzzy appeal to it…Abated Mass of Flesh.  Cuddly for sure.  Ok, this is about as far from cuddly, charming, easy listening music as you can get.  Cacophonous, caustic, and vociferous are all terms the band uses to describe their sound and those certainly are accurate if not quite strong enough, but I do disagree with their choice of the term noisy.  Noisy to me implies something negative, poor quality, lacking organization or structure and that does not fit the sounds.  There is beauty in the chaos, power in the skull-crushing heaviness.

Zack Plunkett started this chaos as a solo project in the summer of 2011 and released the ep, Moth and Rust in the Temple of Putridity and then followed that up with the Brutal Death ep, this time adding brother Matthew to take on lead vocals and Kade Dodson on drums during 2012.  Following these two ep’s were two more, The Anatomy of Impurity and Deathcrusher.  The Omen King marks a departure from the trend of releasing ep’s and is the band’s first full length.

original-amof_-_the_anatomy_of_impurity_coverOkay put any notion or perception on what you think is heavy or brutal to a side, no really do that, well at-least I had to. Be prepared to be educated! Its just about the most darn heavy album I have ever heard. It is so noisy, caustic an extreme for me it should carry a warning that reads a long the lines of ”You might spontaneously com-bust on listening”, Also fair advice, do not play this around conservative Christians, I can imagine the torrents of fiery abuse they would rain down on you after a few seconds of listening to this. Even the name, Abated Mass Of Flesh, does not conjure up pretty walks in the park, sweat sounds of waterfalls, and sheep relaxing in the meadow; the name would probably seem more fitting on a zombie music Compilation album to be honest. There does seem to be a trend towards really BRUTAL heavy music lately, or maybe Eelco, my Editor, is just giving me the most brutal albums he can for me to review…haha. These guys are off Rottweiler Records, a name I say is synonymous with some great releases, solid artist and a solid presence in the Christian music scene that has won my respect more than once. I have seen a lot of activity on Facebook surrounding Abated Mass of Flesh, and its all been mostly positive, which is a good thing, it helps the reviewer a little in terms of preparation. Though I have never listened to them before, but had various pictures in my mind of what they could sound like, from postings of fans of theirs who are friends of mine, and oh boy, my mind failed me, this is way more brutally charged nitro , turbo-ed and supercharged fueled death metal than I ever imagined, way more than what I have experienced from the genre in the past.
