Nick Sampson, who’s produced bands such as Polyphia, Born of Osiris, and Asking Alexandria, ripped through his band I Am Abomination’s track “Ultraterrestrial” at NAMM this year. Performing at the Joey Sturgis Tones booth, Nick ran his guitar through Toneforge Ben Bruce and Toneforge Jason Richardson.
This is some ridiculously melodic technical death metal, and if you don’t believe it, check out the choirs and cleans from about 1:10 and into 1:30. And if you’re curious as to what kind of guitar is Nick playing, it’s actually a custom build by Nick himself! It’s gorgeous as all heck, though, and clearly, Nick’s aesthetic taste is as top shelf as his musical taste.
It looks like we will be hearing new music from I Am Abomination sometime in the very near future. Check them out on Facebook here, Instagram here, and their website here. And check out their past albums, and single “Ultraterrestrial” on Spotify, iTunes, and Google Play.
