Los Angeles’ death metal masters ABYSMAL DAWN have unleashed “Soul-Sick Nation”, the third and final single from their upcoming release, ‘Phylogenesis’. The album is due on April 17, making it the band’s debut to Season of Mist. “Soul-Sick Nation” can be heard at THIS LOCATION.
Vocalist/guitarist/lyricist Charles Elliott comments:
“This is a super heavy and groovy one. It’s the first time we’ve used 7 string guitars and the first time we’ve tuned to A standard. Lyrically the song deals with inner demons and the mental health epidemic. Something that has touched so many people in my life, including myself.
“On a more uplifting note, the song features three ripping solos. One from our very own Vito Petroni (solo #2), and two from Fredrik Folkare (solos #1 and #2) of Unleashed and Firespawn! It was a great honor to have Fredrik play on our record; he’s an absolute beast of player. We played some shows in South America in late 2018, and asked him to play on our record after a night of drinking probably too much Pisco. So happy it worked out because he laid down something truly special. Enjoy!”
ABYSMAL DAWN previously released “The Path of the Totalitarian,” the second single from their forthcoming fifth studio album, ‘Phylogenesis.’ The song is available along with an accompanying 360° visualizer at THIS LOCATION.
