Abrams
"Expertly constructed... There are hints of AmRep-era noise rock a la Unsane, as well as sludgy riffs you might have heard cranking out of Josh Homme's amp back in his Kyuss days – and there's even a strange sense of kinetic propulsion mastered by fellow Denver residents Plane Mistaken for Stars... Lust. Love. Loss. is worth your attention."
–Substream

"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

"Denver trio Abrams make their full-length debut... with an obvious focus on flow, complexity of songwriting, crisp execution, tight performances and an overarching sense of heft that is more than ably wielded... The three-piece seem to take their cues from the post-Baroness school of progressive heavy rock, bringing the occasional flourish of post-rock..."
–The Obelisk

"Similar, stylistically, to Remission-era Mastodon: polyrhthmic bluesy grooves hammer away as washed-out leads dance and skip around jazz-influenced drum fills. The combination fulfills a niche that hasn't seen a true successor since the aforementioned 2002 masterpiece."
–Heavy Blog Is Heavy

The synergy of melody, groove, and bullet-train force displayed on Lust. Love. Loss. sets Abrams in line with heavy transcenders like Mastodon and Pelican. Drummer Michael Amster pushes forward with crisp, ghost-noted beats that nod to Dailor at his best; twin brother Zach Amster scrapes shimmering melodies and massive crunch out of his axe; Taylor Iversen's basslines roll along like boulders down mountainsides.

When asked about their influences, the guys name-check heroes of post-hardcore like Fugazi and At the Drive-In. Indeed, Abrams' sound could be perceived as a turbo-boosted, sludged-up incarnation of those bands' spirits – driving and impassioned, traversing the spectrum of feeling, from mournful to triumphant.
Glacial Tomb
This horror, unending, is filled with little more than loss, pain, remorse, and failure.
Nightwraith
Cool metal from Denver.
Kenaima
Angry people making angry music.
