Symbolic State
By Abstract Words

Very likeable surprise this “By Abstract Words” of Symbolic State, a not so reknown band that had already released two demo tapes under the name of Scavenger, then changed since there are too many bands using this monicker. The album we’ìre talking about is just the latest work in the band’s discography, but dates back to 2002, and will be followed by a new demo entitled “circle of Dogmatic Perversions”. The death metal of Symbolic State is airy, well built and charged of atmosphere and personality. The quoted sources are Dismember and Suffocation, and maybe we can agree with them, since they unite the killer riffing of the former band, with its tie to thrash metal and then heavy and dynamic, with the construction of the songs of the latter group, with griowl voice and fast rhythms, and the drums careful in creating something as well as supporting the guitars. The songs come out filled up with personality, a bit swinging between the death metal technique and a class-filled various thrash. All in all Symbolic State can be remembered for a technical various sound, succeeding to say their own words with something original and studied. Our head bangs with pleasure for fourty minutes and it’s incredible they must still self-produce their albums: “By Abstract Words” anyway is the right chance to get the deserved deal!
