I can totally understand why Verwüstung and Nachthymnen would remain the favorites of the majority of the fans. Classic albums indeed, but I can only hope the love for those albums will inspire people to check out the recent material. Abigor have in my mind totally transcended their own discography with Sulphur. I'm baffled by how far they've been able to take it without ever sounding like anything but Abigor. There's surely tremendous awards on offer for those who can leave the nostalgia on the shelf.

Opus IV and Apokalypse are my favorites hands down. Eerie Constellation is unbelievably good. All musicians involved in Abigor were/are talented as fuck.

On another note, does anyone have the REMASTERED version of Opus IV and can comment on the sound difference compared to the original CD?

Remastered Opus sounds definitely better. The sound is deeper and clearer.

Just bought it on Discogs. Will get back with a detailed report as soon as I've heard it.

Sorry, I'm way behind...but what format is this available on? Is it a general 'reissue' of the album or some specific re-release? This thread is the first time I read about it I think.

Fuck that shitty Russian shit, but the double CD with Verwustung directly from Napalm. They're remastered and only 10 euros.

Got that one instead. Thanks for the tip.

Is it true that TT once auditioned for Slayer and almost got the job?

Definitely one of my favorite bands. One of the most unique blands of melody and brutality in black metal.

It kinda goes like this:

Verwustung for abundance of melody;
Nachthymnen for nostalgia;
Supreme Immortal Art for desperate, gloomy atmosphere;
Apokalypse for heaviness and groove;
Channeling for chaotic thoughts;
Satanized for cosmic aura

etc.

I had a hard time picking just one release, but I went with Fractal Possession. The title "3D Blasphemy" pretty much says everything about the music. I just LOVE the artificial, spacey sound of drums on that one.

The least favorite would probably be Orkblut, but only because of those stupid keyboard/flute interludes.

I even liked Satanized and In Memory EP is a good release too. Shadowlord is one of their most wicked, intense songs.

Such a hard choice, but in the end I went for Opus IV. I admit, a lot of it is down to nostalgia, but it still stands up as an amazing record.

Hard choice ,with Channelling...and Fractal... definitely up there. Time...is also quite the listen!

I wasn't that taken with Quintessence to be honest, as I'm quite a fan of the original. I should give it another listen. The demos are great though.

Definitely one of my favourite bands.
