Los Angeles death metal outfit Abysmal Dawn are in a recording studio at this very moment, working on the follow up to their 2011 release Leveling the Plane of Existence.
The band’s frontman, the honorable Charles Elliot, updated fans on what’s going down.
“The time has finally come to exorcise the demons once again,” he says.
“It’s been a while but we’ll be entering the studio very soon to begin recording the follow up to Leveling the Plane of Existence! To be honest, I wasn’t sure we could top that record at first. After a couple tracks into the demoing process though all my doubts were washed clean away.”
Damn. That sounds outstanding.
“This is definitely a worthy successor if not something even greater, and I’m sure fans will agree,” says Elliot. “We aren’t always the most optimistic bunch but in this case I think we’ll make an exception.
“There’s definitely some faster stuff here, as well as some super groovy and atmospheric material. It’s slightly different but as always with us, ‘the riff’ and song-craft are what we tried to bring to the forefront here. All these songs were meant to pummel audiences in a live setting, and I think we’ve achieved that. We look forward to playing these on tour for you guys whenever the album comes out!
“We’ll start recording drums at Trench Studios (Exhumed, Intronaut) this weekend with John Haddad, then head over to Artisan Road Studios with Mike Bear to track everything else, before returning to Trench again to reamp everything.”
Then, “we’ll send it off to the good people at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Bloodbath, Soilwork, The Forsaken) in Sweden to mix and master. Time to crush!”
