Abyss is a new album from Seattle/Tacoma-based hip hop artist, Krim$in Terror Phantom (of the “coastal cult” collective). This high octane EP is packed with fresh, thick beats. Attention grabbing samples interweave smoothly with the content, and the backing vocalizations are often enchantingly hypnotic. Abyss has an intentionally eerie quality. It is both spiritual and businesslike at the same time. The mixes are powerful, and subtle usage of noise gives the music an intensifying jolt. The delivery style is straightforward and assertive, as Krim$in Terror Phantom and various guest artists emit an engaging stage presence. This is a bold, no-nonsense release. The action never lets up, even for a moment.
