[b.abuse] are a band from Germany that plays an experimental form of post crust and this is a review of their album "Memories Of Better Days Are Gone" which will be released in 2018 by WOOAAARGH.
Dark yet heavy riffing starts off the album while the vocals are aggressive crust/hardcore style shouts and screams along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them as well as the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody, melodic vocals are also utilized at times.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while the synths when they are utilized give the songs a more experimental and atmospheric feeling along with some acoustic guitars and spoken word parts also being utilized at times as well as a brief use of saxophones, one of the later tracks is an instrumental and one of the later songs is also very long and epic in length and the music sticks either to a slow or mid tempo direction.
[b.abuse] plays a musical style that takes crust punk, post metal and experimental and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover political themes.
In my opinion [b.abuse] are a very great sounding experimental mixture of crust punk and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Promise Empty" Days Gone By" and "We Are Like Ants". 8 out of 10.
