Hailing from Northern Germany, Abest are blurring the lines between atmospheric Post-Metal and bleak Hardcore to create a dark and compelling emotional atmosphere. Their debut full length „Asylum“ was released in May 2014 via This Charming Man Records, home of bands like The Tidal Sleep or Mountain Witch. In Summer 2016 Abest released a new 12" EP called "Last" - again on This Charming Man Records - followed by touring and playing shows with bands like Downfall Of Gaia, Red Apollo or Buried At Sea. As of 2018, a new album is in the works to be released in the near future.
“No matter where you decide to turn, you cannot escape from the bulldozer that is Abest.”
“The Germans display their influences of hardcore and sludge metal to build an atmosphere of anguish and unsettling nature.”
“Very powerful and dark.”
