ACABAH ROT is a band I just randomly came across about 10 years ago. I don't even know why I bought it...I think it was because I assumed Tidal was great but they didn't end up impressing nearly as much as this German band that released these two songs and then called it a day. ACABAH ROT played lower intensity, light, loose and playful European screamo that was never quite musically honed enough for my personal taste, but the promise was undeniable.

"Weltim Kopf" starts off the 12"EP and although it may be the weaker of the two songs it still packs a punch at points, like the beginning that is rather reminiscent of Fall Of Troy...except that it came out before they could have been influenced by such a band. The song also screams of Yage and Daitro which isn't surprising considering the band's location and period in time. The ending is interesting in a weird and surprisingly catchy kind of way as it uses a recording of a guy singing some repetitious thing unaccompanied by music and saying, "Glim glim, glim bim bim. Bom bam bim, bam bah bim,.." and so on. Strange. "Erkenntnis" is then, by default, my favourite of the two songs. It begins with dreamy guitars and spoken word before getting dancey/screamy much in the vein of Mr. Willis Of Ohio. The song employs multiple screamers and at 3:58 all three are layered simultaneously over the climax with epic results.

I just noticed that ACABAH ROT put up a bandcamp in 2014 with the entire 12" for free download so I'd recommend going here for that as you'll get the Tidal songs too.
