Carnation - Chapel Of Abhorrence Review

September 5, 2018

Album review by Rick Eaglestone

Chapel of Abhorrence

Released 17th August 2018

Label - Seasons of Mist
For fans of Autopsy, Entombed & Bolt Thrower.

Formed in 2013 this Belgian 5 piece unleash their first full-length LP with 11 tracks of distinctively old-school sounds in the form of Chapel of Abhorrence.

Right from the off you forget that this album was only released late August. Before you even get into the music Juanjo Castellano’s artwork wouldn’t be out of place next to Entomb’s Left-Hand Path.

 “The Whisperer” really sets the tone for the album which after multiple listens still tricks me into believing that this wasn’t made in the early 90’s and if you don’t believe me than the title track “Chapel of Abhorrence” should finally hit the nail in the coffin & make you fan if you weren’t already

Chapel of Abhorrence is effortless and creates a classic atmosphere whilst at the same has enough creative elements not to sound like a tribute album, it’s well executed and is hands down one of the best death metal debuts of the year.

My Score: 5 out 5 skulls
