The follow-up to the band’s 2012 debut, “Fractured in the Timeless Abyss”, Ectovoid’s second album “Dark Abstraction” sees the U.S. outfit expand and develop their sound in all areas while remaining true to the morbid and punishing death metal of their roots. Delving into the darkest depths of the mind, perception, and existential dread, the eight songs that make up “Dark Abstraction” embrace and glorify the cryptic emptiness and terrifying mysteries that encompass and pervade all aspects of human reality, with music that balances atmosphere and depth with raw energy and power.

This is the best death-doom I've ever heard. You have to go back to early Incantation to find anything close to the level of execution achieved here. The musical arrangements are deeply complex and layered, which means you discover something new with each listen. I think there's something about the variety of tempos and experimentation with different types of composition that make it supersatisfying. And it's a headbanger. eManRenaissanc
