Abigail Williams - "In The Absence Of Light" album

"In The Absence Of Light" is Abigail Williams' second album, and though members continue to come and go, the band's well-crafted symphonic black metal brings elements of classic metal to the (sacrificial) table. "Final Destiny Of The Gods" is a barn (or is it church?)-burner, and an amped-up standout, with a blurred attack of blast-beats and almost prog-rock melodics. "In Death Comes The Great Silence" is a doomy but melodic blur of black metal sorrow, as well. Solid album. (Candlelight Records)
