Abrams - Morning LP

Image of Abrams - Morning LP


Clearly a band rooted in latter-day Baroness and Mastodon influence, one of Abrams' most attractive qualities is their ability to blend heartfelt melodies with ethereal ambience and driving rhythms. The dual vocal talents of Taylor Iversen and Zach Amster also set this band apart from some of their contemporaries, giving off a very much Hinds/Sanders vibe at times. A bit of punk influence even sneaks its way in at times, as evidenced by album opener "Worlds Away," calling to mind the sludge/punk cacophony of Black Tusk. Basically, Abrams is very in-tune with what's working in the present day sludge metal sound, and they combine all of this effortlessly into a style all their own.
