A Beacon In The Husk

zirtonic Whatever sparse dopamine hits were present on Antikatastaseis are completely gone. Dissonance is king here, and when the songs dip into ambient territory their subtlety only magnifies the ever-present discomfort. Even the closing melody is illusory, begging you to re-listen so it can drag you down again and again. Favorite track: III – Descent: A Beacon In The Husk.

Alex Decknadel This is what I've been waiting for since Antikatastaseis came out in 2015. There's a bigger doom influence on this record, and no glimmer of hope. Strong contender for AOTY, in my book.

revolv0 If Atmospheric Blackened Death Metal is a sub-genre, this album should be considered one of its benchmarks. It can be so unnerving, I had anxiety listening. Keep up the great work, I can’t wait to study this album in depth.

Cheers from Lancaster, PA. Favorite track: II – Discernment: Khyphotic Suzerains.

Otherworldly mysterious UK dark ambient death metal entity ABYSSAL have completed work on their fourth opus “A Beacon In The Husk”. Standing as the most colossal and ambitious ABYSSAL offering yet, “A Beacon In The Husk” stretches the ABYSSAL sound into even darker, more abstract, noiser, and progressive realms than anything within the ABYSSAL oeuvre. Four years following the acclaimed “Antikatastaseis” observation, an album in which saw ABYSSAL take a slightly more structured approach to the enveloping death metal horror and one that brought awareness to ABYSSAL as one of the most prominent death metal artists emerging from the UK, “A Beacon In The Husk” brings the audial terror to a whole new suffocating and overbearing complex level, even at times making it the most outlier ABYSSAL album to date.
