As they wrapped up their North American tour with Deicide, ABYSMAL DAWN released their new album this past Monday via Relapse Records. Met with critical acclaim and some of the band’s best reviews yet, Obsolescence is a veritable beast of a record and the perfect example of what 21st century death metal should sound like.
Obsolescence is available to order from Relapse Records HERE and digitally via Bandcamp HERE. The album can be purchased on iTunes HERE. The album is available in CD/LP/Digital/Deluxe Digital formats.
Recently the band completed work on a video for the song “Inanimate”. The video has been released today and can be watched HERE.
Front Charles Elliot on the meaning on “Ianimate”
“Lyrically this one is about losing your idealism and becoming a cold, unfeeling shell of a human being, in order to survive our modern society. An inanimate object if you will; one without hope that has cut themselves off from emotion. Our experiences in this life can carve us into stone, but they can also desensitize us in the process. In short, this might be the most depressing song you ever wanted to circle pit too.”
Throughout the recording of Obsolescence, ABYSMAL DAWN shot a series of videos documenting the process. The first video in the series can be viewedHERE and the second episode can be seen HERE and the third video in the series can be viewed HERE.
ABYSMAL DAWN strikes the perfect balance between extreme songwriting and exceptional skill with an infectious blend of technical yet memorable riffs, throat shredding vocals, and crushing rhythms delivered with machine gun precision.
