Aborym is an Italian black metal band led by Burzum/Mayhem crony Csihar. The music incorporates very evident classic black metal influences (Blood, Fire Death-era Bathory being the most obvious) and more modern techno/industrial touches.

While Aborym's decision to put their weakest song first is questionable, the music is otherwise very solid and enjoyable, if rather derivative. While the production is a little flat and cheap, it is more than acceptable by black metal standards. A relatively wide variety of tempos and vocal styles (female spoken samples, black rasps and somewhat hokey Moonspellish ultra-low-pitched segments) keeps the music interesting, and excellent pieces like the Burzum cover "Det Som en Gang Var" or "Love the Death..." make for a great, if not earth-shattering, little black metal album.
