3 stars d_letion is the second album by US act Abigail's Ghost, following two years after their initial outing. It's a pritty grim production, where the songs generally comes across as dark and bleak in mood and style. Musically the foundation this time around seems to be modern hard rock, with elements from progressive metal and indie rock blended in - with some subtle space-tinged synths often residing in the back of the mix.

The ingredients are intriguing, but I did find the compositions lacking. Both the harder hitting ventures and the more ballad-oriented material comes across as predictable, the compositions more or less follows a very similar structure and only on a few occasions subtle additions to the proceedings manage to conjure themes or atmospheres out of the ordinary.

There's a few strong tracks to take note of, title track d_letion and the creepy ballad Sneek Peak first and foremost, but apart from these songs the highlights are few and far between. Good songs for the most part, but lacking the finer details to make them great and quite a bit off from perfection.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
