RTTP Blurb
Wow, what a month! So many things happen.. slayer rocking jager mister, the death of dimebag darrel from pantera, and many other things. The year 2004 is almost over. the next newsletter will probably be a year-in review, unless I get time to do another one before then.

RTTP On your CELLPHONE!?!

that's right, there is now a text-only version of RTTP:

Spotlight
abhorred (Chelmsford/Lowell, Ma)... well... what can you say, their self proclaimed bio
"We play extreme metal. Thank you, and fuck you."

For a little while, I had heard the name, but handn't yet seen them until feb 2004 at the all asia.

Immediately, I was impressed by them. A metal band with vocals that you could actually understand?
sounds good to me. by the first time seeing them, I already knew some of the lyrics.


and 3 songs, 1 minute? brillant!

since then, I've seen them like 12 times.

their story starts in Aug/sept 2003. the Johns (vocal and drums) and Ben (guitar) started to jam out.


then a month or so later, they added Eric (guitar) the male model.


Previous to Abhorred, Eric (guitar) and John (drummer) had a band together that "went nowhere for about a year prior to abhorred" which broke up about a month before the beginnings of Aborred.


when they began, they "started out as basically strictly old school grind (repulsion, old napalm, terrorizer, etc...) then we tried to blend old school metal with newer stuff out there". I definitly notice the napalm death influences. but I also see a flavor of Patera's cowboy cd. Their newest song works in solient green/bongzilla style stoner riffs. when they bust them out, John (vocals) ends up on the ground, slowly screaming is vocal raw as the music slows down. This band is completely evolving. each show they played is claimed by someone as their "best" show yet.

Currently, they are working on their new cd.
What is it missing?
the bass tracks... buuuuut.. what hasn't been mentioned above?
that's right a bassplayer. in steps the head banging, bass playing, "hahrt"-having savior to bands, Josh (ascendancy). he will be pulling the double duties with Ascendancy, playing bass with Abhorred.


In Spring 2003, Abhorred signed to Not Common records.
their full length will be on in early 2005.
There is a listening party for their new cd Jan 14th at the Armageddon Shop in Providence Ri.
