AUTOMB “Esoterica”

(Satanath Records)

Battle Helm Rating

I have certain albums that I build up an expectation on even without having heard a single note from them. This one from AUTOMB is one of these albums. For some reason I thought that this was gonna be right up my alley with some seriously mangling death metal. and I wasn’t too off thinking so. This is the kind of slow death metal that I liked when Mythic or Derketa played it. Or even Demonic Christ. And no, I am not just name dropping to look cool. I am name dropping because these are the bands that I hoped this would remind me of. Given that my references always seem to end up in the 80s or 90s I do listen to newer stuff too. This is some seriously heavy stuff. But that doesn’t mean that it is slow and boring. On the contrary. This is really cool. I like what I hear and it did match my expectations on it. Anders Ekdahl
