ABRAMS + Decibel

"Lust. Love. Loss. is a nimble crusher, managing to steamroll and get down with its bad semi-melodic self all at the same time... You will likely be reminded of Baroness, Mastodon and occasionally Neurosis, but only ever in a good way."
–Decibel

"Post-hardcore, filtered through big Melvins-esque guitar rigs... Abrams find the sweet spot on their independent debut, Lust. Love. Loss., about midway between Hot Snakes and Blood Mountain-era Mastodon, and toss in some great lyrics as well."
–Invisible Oranges

"The trio's self-released debut portends big, big things for the band. Effortlessly meshing angular mathcore with chunky stoner metal, Lust. Love. Loss. recalls Remission-era Mastodon..."
–MetalSucks

With Abrams' release of its new album Lust. Love. Loss. just one week away, the Denver trio has teamed with Decibel Magazine to premiere new video, "Useless."

An uneasy, dream-like depiction of isolation, the clip was created by Andrew Baxter and Cole Jenkins. Watch it here.

Decibel calls Lust. Love. Loss., "a nimble crusher, managing to steamroll and get down with its bad semi-melodic self all at the same time... You will likely be reminded of Baroness, Mastodon and occasionally Neurosis." The album was recorded and mixed by Andy Patterson (Cult Leader, SubRosa) and mastered by Brad Boatright (Nails, High on Fire). It follows a 2014 EP, released on Canadian label No List Records (KEN mode).

Abrams sets out on a full US tour next week!
