Plèbe 2178 is the debut album by Belgian doom metal band Absynth. It was released in 2022 on UFOBANANA Records. The album is a concept album about a dystopian future in which the working class has been enslaved by a tyrannical elite. The music is a blend of doom metal, sludge metal, and psychedelic rock. The album has been praised for its heavy sound and its dark, dystopian atmosphere.
The album opens with the title track, "Plèbe 2178." The song sets the scene for the rest of the album, with its slow, crushing riffs and its lyrics about a world in which the working class is oppressed. The second track, "The Machine," is a more psychedelic track, with its swirling guitars and its droning vocals. The third track, "The Awakened," is a heavier track, with its driving rhythms and its harsh vocals.
The album continues in this vein, with each track exploring a different aspect of the dystopian future that Absynth has created. The album closes with the track "The End," which is a slow, atmospheric track that leaves the listener with a sense of dread and despair.
Plèbe 2178 is a powerful and thought-provoking album that explores the dark side of human nature. The music is heavy and the lyrics are dark, but the album is also a warning about the dangers of oppression and exploitation. If you are a fan of doom metal, sludge metal, or psychedelic rock, then you should definitely check out Plèbe 2178.
