Candlelight Records has added Becoming, the new release by Abigail Williams, to their Bandcamp. This is doom-ish black metal mixed with up-tempo swells of distortion and blastbeats. Real strings and piano are used to enhance the atmosphere, not to create the bombast typical of symphonic black metal. The production is the distant drums, distant vocals typical of post black metal. The vocals are bleak and despondent screams and effective growling. Here are three reviews from Angry Metal Guy, Heavy Blog is Heavy and Teeth of the Divine.
