"Strange Rites" is a debut full-length by US death metal band ABYSME featuring a former FUNERUS member - Brad Heiple. The album consists of 10 tracks of heavy death metal with varying tempos, reminiscent of the crushing sounds of decades past and various other underlying influences, mangled with lyrical elements of supernatural horror, existential fear, power and morbidity. Essential purchase for all fans of Swedish and American old-school death metal!
