Huh, did Abhoth regress or something? After the brilliant "Forever Vanished to be Therein", they released this single. While most of the musical elements remained, the production definitely did not. This is much more grating and scratchy and the drums! Oh the drums. Awful. At least I think they're drums. All you hear when listening is a "chunk" in the background, and while it may be lower in the mix, it has that piercing quality to it, making it really stand out. Not quite sure what to make of this, although the talent here is just as good. One for the collection!
