An amazing album to get lost in. What caught my attention was the intro to Swansong. If you're a Silent Hill 2 fan, you'll instantly recognize the background music. This has just the right heaviness and catchy riffs all while providing a dark, dreadful atmosphere. Definitely worth a listen when you're in the mood for something a little different.
Favorite track: Deus Vult.
So this is where it all started.
My lovely one from them is still Antikatastaseis (will I ever stop stuttering at this?) which doesn't mean by any means the rest is worse. Just Abyssal aren't a band that sounds the same on each album.
💀 ⛧⁶⁶⁶ I love 'a beacon in the husk' but this is my favorite Abyssal album so far. Gregg Cowell is a Genius and an awesome musician. Although it may sound overwhelming at first just hang in there you won't regret it. Best to turn the volume up on this one. This will make your brain work, rewire it or turn it to mush
Fantastic stuff. ²₳ÐHÐ𝟒ÐØØM̴⛧
a punishingly heavy, yet startlingly soulful album. “beaten” chugs from start to finish and reaches a harrowing crescendo; brendan’s “I AM FREE” reverberates around in my dreams. the cover of “no dreaming” had my jaw on the floor the first time i heard it. but “relent?” the entire runtime of this song, i’m compelled by some otherworldly force to scream my soul out right along to the lyrics. not to mention the incredible riffs; the choruses remind me of a blackened ulcerate, e milesmccollough
What more can you say after reading the abhorrent bio of this album that tells the vision behind it? This is the black vomit of Tchornobog: abyssal violation of your senses and pineal gland and you are not the same person after encountering this multidimensional god. 𝙅𝙤𝙚 𝙎𝙥𝙞𝙣𝙚𝙡𝙡
