Abysmal Dawn share video for re-recording of “Blacken The Sky”

Los Angeles death metal titans Abysmal Dawn will be releasing a new EP, ‘Nightmare Frontier,’ on February 4, 2022 via Season of Mist! The band is now sharing a brand new version of the song “Blacken the Sky,” which was mixed, mastered, and recorded by Abysmal Dawn guitarist/vocalist Charles Elliott. The re-recording can be found along with a lyric video at THIS LOCATION [embedded below].

Regarding the decision to re-record the track, Elliott explains, “When it came time to record this EP we started discussing re-recording an older track. After a bit of back and forth, we all ended up voting for ‘Blacken The Sky.’ That was actually the first song I ever wrote for Abysmal Dawn, and it seemed sort of fitting to update it a little for a new era. Enjoy!

Pre-orders for ‘Nightmare Frontier’ are now live at the Season of Mist E-Shop, Abysmal Dawn Bandcamp, and Abysmal Dawn Store. The single and EP can be pre-saved across all streaming services HERE.

Moreover, Abysmal Dawn will be embarking on an extensive North American tour as direct support for OBSCURA at the start of next year! The trek will kick off in San Diego, CA on February 3 and will conclude on March 23 in Fresno, CA! Tickets are on sale NOW! The full run of dates can be found below!

‘Nightmare Frontier’ follows up 2020’s critically-acclaimed album, ‘Phylogenesis.’ The album was named one of the best albums of 2020 by Metal Injection, Metal Insider (#7), Teeth of the Divine, Cursed Zine, and more! In addition, drummer James Coppolino is listed as one of Sick Drummer Magazine’s favorite drummers of 2020 and the band’s song “Soul Sick Nation” was among Loudwire’s “66 Best Metal Songs of 2020.”

‘Nightmare Frontier’ 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.
