In Abysmal Dawn news, the band have wrapped up production on their fifth full-length album, the follow-up to their 2014 LP Obsolescence, with an actual record title and release date pending. On social media, they stated:
We’re officially done with album number 5! It’s been quite some time since we released any new music, and we feel we have something special on our hands. It took a lot of time, effort, and seeing through some trying times to get to this moment. We’re very proud of the outcome and think fans will agree it was worth the wait. Now we take a quick breath before getting back once again to spreading our brand of misanthropic extreme metal across the globe.
As for Hideous Divinity, they’re trekking in support of their recently released opus, Simulacrum.
