Abysmal Dawn - Releasing New EP In February

L.A. death metal masters Abysmal Dawn announce Nightmare Frontier, a brand new 4-song EP. Due on February 4th 2022, it was mixed and mastered by Charles Elliott at Tastemaker Audio. Drums were engineered by John Haddad at Trench Studios, while tracking for all instruments was handled by Elliott. In conjunction with the unveiled details, Abysmal Dawn also share the EP's first single - "A Nightmare Slain" - along with a music video that was created by Guilherme Henriques.

Abysmal Dawn frontman/founding member Charles Elliott comments: "The music for this track was recorded for Phylogenesis, but we left it off the record. We thought it was a great song but we felt it didn't quite fit into the flow of that album. The music shows a bit more of a slightly progressive and melodic side of the band, which we may explore more in the future. The lyrics were written during the pandemic and are inspired by the lore of the video game 'Bloodborne.'

"Now, we have a lot of songs filled with social commentary and introspective lyrics. When it came time to write the words for this one, I don't think I could bring myself to focus any more on the misery or subjugation that we live in our day to day lives. Who needs another song of 'COVID' drivel or divisive politics at this point? Hopefully we can all agree on what I discovered while I was trapped at home for over a year; 'Bloodborne' is one of the greatest video games ever made. 'Animal Crossing' and 'Mario Party' fans should definitely check it out, along with the rest of the 'soulsborne' genre for a stress free good time... We hope you enjoy our song inspired by one of the most metal games ever made. Enjoy and see you on tour!"
