GUEST ANNOUNCED FOR NEXT ΩMEGA WAVE PODCAST

May 27th, 2011

The next installment of the Ωmega Wave Podcast with Craig Locicero of FORBIDDEN & co-host “Barbwire” Bill Shields will feature Charles Elliott, guitarist/vocalist/founding member of Abysmal Dawn.  Tune in here this Sunday, May 29th at 6:00 p.m. PACIFIC / 9:00 p.m. EASTERN.

 

The Ωmega Wave Podcast speaks off-the-cuff on whatever news-related and controversial subject may come up and takes questions from listeners. The goals of the show are two-fold:

 

1) To speak to different compelling and controversial lyricists in Metal and Hard Rock.  They will be asked about their motivation, their craft, and what exactly inspires them in these challenging times to do what they do.  Their thoughts & opinions on the most current affairs and intensely debated issues will also be discussed.

 

2) Have listeners sit in on a real conversation between good friends without censorship watering those thoughts down.  Reactions are never filtered. These conversations can get very heated at times, depending on the topic.

 

Previous guests include Henrik Ohlsson of Scar Symmetry, Barney Greenway of Napalm Death, Neil Fallon (Clutch, the Company Band), and C.J. “The Metal Motivator” Ortiz.

 

Future guests will include Michael Amott & Angela Gossow of Arch Enemy, Dave Brockie of Gwar, Maurizio Iacono of Kataklysm, and many more.

 

FORBIDDEN will launch their second headlining tour of North America on June 9th in Hollywood, California.  View upcoming tour dates here.

Abysmal Dawn – New Interview Online

February 3rd, 2011

Relapse Records death metal band Abysmal Dawn released their third album “Levelling the Plane of Existence”  on Feb. 1, 2011.  LoudTrax.com had the opportunity to interview guitarist / vocalist Charles Elliott.
Once again, LoudTrax.com is proud to offer the lowest price online($6.66) for another great metal album.
excerpts from Charles Elliot interview:

We aren’t afraid to experiment a little especially if the song calls for it. We listen to a lot of different styles of music but we’re primarily an extreme metal band of course.

“Having great artwork is important to me though and I feel like it affects the vibe of a whole record. ”

Regarding the song “The Sleeper Awakens”…….”It’s actually Erik Rutan’s favorite song and it’s sort of ironic that one of the brutalist people on the planet would be into the mellowest song on the record. ”

ABYSMAL DAWN: Guest Appearances on ‘Leveling The Plane of Existence’ Revealed

December 10th, 2010

ABYSMAL DAWN was joined by guest musicians Moyses Kolesne (KRISIUN) and Kragen Lum (HEATHEN, PROTOTYPE) during the recording of their forthcoming album Leveling The Plane of Existence. Kolesne provides a guitar solo on the track “Pixilated Ignorance” and Lum adds guitar solos on “Rapture Renowned” and the title track. Leveling The Plane of Existence, the follow-up 2008’s Programmed To Consume, has been set for a February 1st North American release date (February 7th – UK, February 11th – Germany, Benelux, February 14th – rest of EU) and is available for pre-order here <http://shop.relapse.com/store/product.aspx?ProductID=41804>.

ABYSMAL DAWN guitarist / vocalist Charles Elliott commented on the guest spots; “I had so many leads to lay down while trying to finish up lyrics etc., that I started thinking about who I’d love to have do some guest solos for us. I’ve known Moyses ever since we toured with KRISIUN in 2006 and I think he’s one of the most talented yet underrated guitarist in death metal. If you listen to the face melting lead that he laid down for us I think you’ll see what I mean. He recorded a trade off solo with me for the track ‘Pixilated Ignorance’, which is probably the fastest and most technical track on the record. His in your face style fit the song perfectly and I don’t think I could have picked a better song for him to play on.”

“I also had Kragen Lum from HEATHEN and PROTOTYPE come down to the studio, and lay down some trade offs with me on ‘Rapture Renowned’ and “Leveling…”. I’ve been a fan of his playing since I was a teenager so it was an honor to have him shred on our record. We share a lot of the same progressive influences when it comes to lead playing so his style fit the band like a glove. I highly recommend you check out his bands if you’re open minded and into progressive and thrash stuff.”

ABYSMAL DAWN recently posted a brief video clip taped during the recording of Leveling The Plane of Existence online now at this location <http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06s3MrXY0LM>. The first of the in-studio videos includes an interview with ABYSMAL DAWN drummer Scott Fuller, insight on the band’s writing process, and a run-down of Fuller’s recording set-up. Additional studio footage will be posted shortly.

ABYSMAL DAWN will embark on the first North American tour in support of Leveling The Plane of Existence early next year. ABYSMAL DAWN will be teaming up with KATAKLYSM, ALL SHALL PERISH, DECREPIT BIRTH and more for this four-week tour that will kick-off on February 24th in Cleveland, OH. The band will also be headlining a show tonight, December 10th, in Simi Valley, CA where they will be playing a host of new material and taping the performance for a DVD. A listing of confirmed tour dates and cites can be found below with more to be announced soon.
