ABHOR “Ab Luna Lucenti, Ab Noctua Protecti”

“Ab Luna Lucenti, Ab Noctua Protecti”
Is there such a thing as progressive black metal? If not I think Abhor has invented it. Take away the harsh vocals and the sound effects and you’d be forgiven for thinking that this was a prog album from the 70s. Not that that should be a negative thing. As this is my first encounter with Abhor I have nothing to compare to. That it at times sounds so familiar that I tear my hair in frustration over not being able to identify it is another tale. I didn’t expect to bond so hard with this album when I heard the first notes but it turned out to be so much better than I at first thought. Progressive black metal??? Anders Ekdahl
