I AM ABOMINATION is not stranger to positive vibes towards their sound and originality. “Michigan has given us a few memorable things such as Ford cars, Eminem and Domino’s Pizza… Now the Mighty Mitten State has graced our ears with the likes of I AM ABOMINATION—a post-hardcore/progressive rock outfit that boasts a vast, enthralling sound and forward-thinking mindset,” stated TheNewReview.net in 2010.
In reference to their 2010 release, To Our Forefathers, DecoyMusic.com stated, “I AM ABOMINATION has crafted an absurdly pleasing album. From the appealing voice of lead singer Phil Druyor, the swift riffs of guitarists Shawn Reed and Zach Felps, to the floating, airy beauty of the synthesizers that surround I AM ABOMINATION’s music, To Our Forefathers is the audio equivalent of a massive heap of cotton candy.”
I AM ABOMINATION’s first full length album, To Our Forefathers, can be purchased on iTunes here.
