Abysmal Dawn are a band who combine technical Death & Thrash Metal into their tracks and their recent album release ‘Leveling the Plane of Existence’, for me is a great album!
From their hometown Los Angeles, CA and forming in 2004, Abysmal Dawn released a three song demo that winter and were soon sharing the stage with Exodus, 3 Inches of Blood, Hate Eternal, Into Eternity, Aborted, and many more established bands.
The band have a great mix of modern death metal sounds with great brutality, speed, and virtuosity, especially with Charles Elliotts’ deep vocals and great guitar skills with him being on guitar with Mike Cosio with them providing some amazing and impressive solos and riffs as well and fast, relentless drumming from Scott Fuller! These guys really do have great talent and manage to bring something different to each track!
This for me is definitely an album that will please all the technical death metal fans out there, and well worth buying, even if it is just to hear their guitar solo’s alone!
