Vessel merges disorienting waves of sonic violence with an ever-present thunderous pulse. Though short and sweet, this EP hits hard; representing the latest evolution in the band’s signature progressive death metal sound.
The band’s third release overall, Vessel marks the first Abriosis recording to feature new vocalist Alxs Ness (ex-Without Mercy). Ness’ Youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/Alxxxs) has attracted over one million views split between her death metal vocal covers and vocal technique/advice videos.
“Vessel is what we’ve been striving towards for years,” comments guitarist Taylor Lipton. “We feel it truly defines the sound of ABRIOSIS, and foreshadows our future endeavours.”
