ABYSMAL DAWN Enter Studio

Los Angeles Death Metallers ABSYMAL DAWN, have entered the studio to begin work on the follow up to their 2011 release Leveling the Plane of Existence. Frontman Charles Elliot gave the lowdown on the recording process:

"The time has finally come to exorcise the demons once again. It's been a while but we'll be entering the studio very soon to begin recording the follow up to Leveling the Plane of Existence! To be honest, I wasn't sure we could top that record at first. After a couple tracks into the demoing process though all my doubts were washed clean away. This is definitely a worthy successor if not something even greater, and I'm sure fans will agree. We aren't always to most optimistic bunch but in this case I think we'll make an exception.

Issue Studio Update

Los Angeles, CA's ABYSMAL DAWN has recently begun recording the follow-up album to their Relapse debut Programmed To Consume at Trench Studios in Corona, CA with John Haddad (PHOBIA, INTRONAUT, HIRAX). The album will be mixed by Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, GOATWHORE, HATE ETERNAL) at his Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL. A fall release date is expected.

ABYSMAL DAWN's Charles Elliot issued the following update: "We recently wrapped up recording drums at Trench Studios and the final product is incredible! I think we really got some amazing tones this time and Scott delivered an amazing over the top drum performance. Our music has definitely become more demanding technically and Scott really stepped things up in the drum department. We really wanted to get a natural drum sound so the guys in RECIPROCAL were kind enough to let us rent their top of the line Pearl kit from them. Thanks a lot guys!

Right now I'm currently laying down all the rhythm guitar tracks with Mike Bear (ARTISAN, ex-PROTOTYPE) at Artisan Road Studios in Encino, CA. For those of you that are keeping track, Mike played bass on our first album From Ashes?and played a few shows locally with us in the early days. I've known Mike since our bands first played together with DEATH at the Whiskey in '98 while I was still in high school. We became friends soon after and he even filled in on bass for my old band INHUMAN VISIONS back then. Recording my guitar tracks with him has been a true pleasure and his attention to detail is impeccable. Mike Cosio also started tracking bass with him recently and his know-how of the instrument has really helped Mike's performance shine. Can't wait to send everything to Erik Rutan to put the finishing touches on things. This will be the tightest and best ABYSMAL DAWN record yet!?

Additional recording / album details will be made available shortly. Audio samples and video from the band's Programmed To Consume album can be viewed online now via the ABYSMAL DAWN MySpace page: Myspace.com/AbysmalDawn. Learn More

Set To Enter The Studio

Los Angeles, CA's ABYSMAL DAWN will begin recording the follow-up album to their Relapse debut Programmed To Consume this May at Trench Studio in Corona, CA with John Haddad (PHOBIA, INTRONAUT, HIRAX). The album will be mixed by Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, VITAL REMAINS, CANNIBAL CORPSE) at his Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, FL. A fall release date is expected.

ABYSMAL DAWN's Charles Elliot commented on the upcoming album; It's always great to work with John Haddad, whom we've worked with on our previous two releases. This time we thought we'd try something a little different though as far as the mix goes. After to speaking to Erik Rutan at great length we know he's the man for the job. He's a living legend and knows how real death metal should sound! Everyone in the band is really excited to be working with him and we know this is going to be our most crushing release yet. We've been hard at work demoing all the material before we enter the studio and things sound amazing already! This will be our catchiest yet most extreme and technical release to date.

We're also happy to be working with our new drummer Scott Fuller (ex-HAVOK, ex-SKITZO, ex-ASHES OF ICONS). Scott comes from more of a thrash background but was born to play death metal and has never had the outlet for that until now. So far it's been a real pleasure to be in a band with someone with the same fire for this music as Mike and I again. A fitting replacement for Terry with even more chops to boot.?

Additional recording details will be made available shortly. Audio samples and video from the band's Programmed To Consume album can be viewed online now via the ABYSMAL DAWN MySpace page: MySpace.com/AbysmalDawn. Learn More

Post A Brand New Demo Track

Los Angeles, CA's ABYSMAL DAWN has posted a demo track of a brand new song they are working via their MySpace page: MySpace.com/AbysmalDawn. The band is currently hard at work writing for the follow-up to their Relapse debut Programmed To Consume while searching for a new drummer.

ABYSMAL DAWN's vocalist / guitarist Charles Elliott commented on the decision to preview new material so early; We're really excited about this new track along with the other material we've been working on. It doesn't have any vocals or leads put to it yet though, just guitars with a drum machine for people to get the basic idea. We thought we'd give everyone a small taste of what's to come and show people what we're currently looking for in a drummer. Plenty of capable drummers have shown interest in auditioning but we're looking for someone that can take us a step further and play these new songs. Until we find the right person we'll keep writing the most brutal and misanthropic metal imaginable.?

ABYSMAL DAWN will be playing regionally while writing. The band is confirmed for a Hollywood, CA show on November 19th, playing alongside VEHEMENCE.
