Los Angeles based extreme metal masters, ABYSMAL DAWN, return with a massive display of refined brutality on their fourth full-length Obsolescence. Obsolescence will be released October 27th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records. Obsolescence is available for pre-order from Relapse Records HERE and digitally via Bandcamp HERE. The album will be released on CD/LP/Digital/Deluxe Digital formats. The CD and digital releases include a bonus cover of Dissection’s “Night’s Blood” and the digital deluxe version includes demo recordings of every song on the album. ARelapse.com exclusive vinyl color is also available and includes a full color album cover poster. The devastating, otherworldly artwork was created by Pär Oloffson. (The Faceless, Spawn of Possession).
So far only one song from Obsolescence has been made available, but today that changes. ABYSMAL DAWN presents the second song from their new album entitled “The Inevitable Return to Darkness”. Listen to it on Sound Cloud HERE.
Front man Charles Elliot on the new song and upcoming tour: “Here’s another new song for you guys right before we head out on our North American tour! It’s the fast and epic closer to our new album ‘Obsolescence“, and it even features some vocal trade-offs with our bass player Eliseo for a change. We hope you all enjoy the brutality and beauty in this one. See you the road soon!”
In support of Obsolescence, ABYSMAL DAWN will be hitting the road with a handful of headline dates before joining up with Deicide. The headline shows start September 30th in Riverside, CA and go through October 5th in Nashville, TN.
