Aborym - Kali Yuga Bizarre
By Laura TaylorThis release is reaching North American shores a little late, and for many people it's far from new. Aborym have created an odd corruption of black metal, but a memorable one. The more typical blistering, frost-bitten brutality unsurprisingly proliferates on their 1999 debut, but the Medieval horns, church choir, and nod to Skinny Puppy were not so easy to predict. The album abounds with electronics as well, but rather than blending into the overall texture, Aborym's departures into industrial thrust out like a diseased limb. And as strange as it sounds, it all works fairly well. You might need to be in an open-minded sort of mood to fully appreciate Kali Yuga Bizarre ("bizarre" was an appropriate word for them to choose), but ears suffering from the "they all sound the same" syndrome would probably welcome the effort.
