Los Angeles’ ABYSMAL DAWN have been hard at work on their follow-up to 2005’s From Ashes album. Frontman Charles Elliot offered an update on the album’s progress and the band’s going ons:
“We’ve been in and out of John Haddad’s (INTRONAUT, EYES OF FIRE) new studio since November and things are finally starting to come together.
“Following a bit of downtime finishing up some lyrics, vocals were tracked a few days after December 25th. After about six hours of intense screaming and growling my voice gave out, and I had to come back two days latter to track the rest. All that punishment was worth it though, because I’m very confident that these are the sickest vocals I’ve put to tape yet! We even had our friend Jacob from RECIPROCAL come in and do some guest vocals on the track ‘Twilight’s Fallen.’ Some very sick sounds will meet all your ears soon indeed!
“Everyone played their hearts out on this album and I think you can feel the intensity in all our performances. The mixing process is close to done and we can’t believe how heavy this one is sounding! Quite frankly, we feel this album is ABYSMAL DAWN’s best yet and will destroy From Ashes by far! Maybe it’s just us though, so we’ll let you be the judge.
“PÃ¤r Olofsson (PSYCROPTIC, SUICIDE SILENCE) has been working on the new cover and his rough sketches are breath taking to say the least! We can’t wait for the final version because we know it’s going to be some of his best work yet!
“Other than that, it’s time we came out of our hole and laid waste to these lands once again. We have one show scheduled in February so far, and we intend on playing out a lot more prior to the album’s release. We’re working on a few mini-tours so come out and support if we make it to your town!”
