Keenan Johnston Doom-laden deathcrust with a melodic sensibility much akin to one of my favourites of this style, Stormcrow. Thick, rumbling bass is at the forefront here alongside the guitars and creates a dense atmosphere that pervades over the seven tracks offered. While the runtime is relatively brief, there is plenty of variation as the band frequently shifts from lumbering doom to punk-inflected wall-of-noise outbursts. Favorite track: Medieval Minds.

    Four years after the release of the "Pain" EP, Singaporean Sludge-sonance outfit ABOLITION A.D constructed and envisioned their debut album to be an entirely different beast; with the intention of collapsing all traditional boundaries and rebuilding their very own sophisticated rage on "After Death Before Chaos".

    Stripping down to its core fundamentals, "After Death Before Chaos" is forthright, unpretentious and moments of awkward brilliance so jarring and unrefined; ABOLITION A.D's cacophonous capabilities are already proving to be a milestone in their pursuit of sublime chaos.

Track Name: Enchanted Land
Bring only your sanity,
Peaceful place with such beauty.
Home of the demons of a vicious category.
No peace. No Amity. No Harmony.
Did we work to survive? Or did we survive just to work?
Tyrants as rulers, ruling this scorching land.
The grass were never greener on the other side.
No roses, no rainbows on this enchanted land.
How am I to turn the tide when the comfort I need is something I could never find.
The rest I need, I could never get.
The love I need, I could never have.
Track Name: Ouroboros
The human mind is a fucked up manipulation of manifestation.
Hiding behind closed doors after every violation,
the monarch will still be in denial of all this contamination.
The spill of bad blood will and still be carried on,
on and on for generations till the age of time.
The dark ages didn't end, it was just the beginning of the end.
Track Name: Primal Fear
The greed of mankind.
His greed for everything but to mend this demonic revolution into past.
The extinction of this havoc and ruination will brings this old world to rest.
All caused by us. We are our own beast. Our berserk thoughts. Our doings. Our sins.
Like a pack of rabid wolves, scavenging for their food.
Modernize to be primitive. And so it begins.
To eat, to fuck and just to kill.
The people are kept in the dark of this conspiracy on a state of mental leprosy.
The mindless and wishless beings with no say.
The only way is just to stray away.
Track Name: After Death Before Chaos
Forgetting roots, forgetting ethics.
Forgetting morals, forgetting god.
Eat, fuck, survive.
The need just to be alive but dead on the inside.
Primitive way of living the urban life.
Track Name: V.I.P
The rats from the sewers with neck ties as mere disguise,
with briefcases as tools of the trade,
with trench coats, full of hidden agendas.
Animal instincts with vicious minds.
Born stupid, cultivate to have criminal minds,
scheming minds with fucked up lives.
Price of our own lives would fuck us over.
The system would fuck us over yet again.
Much more was taken then given.
No man is ever equal as long as his greed of power is instilled in his mind.
Track Name: Medieval Minds
Half empty, Half full.
From my perspective, we can never be full.
Our hunger for gold, our thirst for lust will never be satisfied but will always surfeit.
Dear Man, we're our own destruction.
Once you've learnt to love, you'd learn to hate.
Being in this vile cage of life, feeling hell just beneath my feet.
The sun will set. The lights will go out.
Black clouds are forming, the birds are calling
so that my name will be erased from this god damned world.
Kill everyone. End everyone's lives.
End the sufferings. End everything.
We are blackened, twisted. poisoned, tainted, doomed.
Our disregard for everything.
Blackened. Twisted. Poisoned. Tainted. Doomed.
We are all doomed.
