So fresh off the Vancouver Metal Scene is Abriosis is a 4-piece progressive death metal band.
With a style that has been compared to Cephalic Carnage, Martyr (Can),
Gorguts, and The Red Chord, Abriosis has already shared the stage with
some of the world’s heaviest acts including Hate Eternal, Origin, Abysmal Dawn,
Vital Remains and Jucifer.
As a follow-up to their acclaimed 2011 full-length album Tattered and Bound,
Abriosis is set to release their latest EP, Vessel on February 1st, 2013. Vessel merges
disorienting waves of sonic violence with an ever-present thunderous pulse.
Though short and sweet, this EP hits hard; representing the latest evolution in the
band’s signature progressive death metal sound.
In keeping with tradition, Abriosis will offer a digital version of Vessel completely
free on their website: www.ABRIOSIS.com. Having already completed two
cross-Canada and five Western Canada tours, after the release the band is set to
continue its intensive touring regimen with a venture into the U.S in the not-so

Tattered and Bound (2011)
Being a new fan to Extreme / Death Metal myself I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect.
When I am listening to an album for reviewing purposes there are a few things I look for
Vocal do they match up with the Music. Too many times ive seen awesome vocals and awesome music but they just didn’t go together.
Guitar Riffs – although drums and Basslines are important too lets face it it’s the guitar riffs we remember and headband the most too.
Riff Changes – for me this is important because if a band plays the same riff the entire song then its boring. Personally I don’t like to head bang or mosh to the same riff for the while 4 mins of a song
Most importantly does the album make me want to thrash – face it in most instances we love this music because it allows us to escape normal everyday life and fuck shit up.
From Start to finish the EP with the song Crypsis ,the vocals were crisp and in your face with a big fuck you. Within the first minute of the song I was starting to look forward to the rest of the EP. The Riff changes stood out the most
The title track “Vessel” the Vocals threw me off at first but the guitar riffs kicked in and I definitely wanted to break some shit “Earpounding” Is what came to mind then. I was air guitaring and headbanging by this time.
Track 3 came on “Peering into Obliviion I was less then happy with this track and saw it more as a filler. But it wasn’t bad it was meh.
The last track Apochra was a very nice finish to the EP vocals were solid, Riffs were tight. At the end of this short EP I was definitely looking for more.
Vessel was my Favorite track and of course Peering into Oblivion was my least favorite.
Out of all the things that intrigued me the most of this EP was the Cover Art. I cant describe in words but the cover art for this EP really appeals to me.
Great release by the band im looking forward to catching them LIVE soon
