ABYSMAL DAWN
LEVELLING THE PLANE OF EXISTENCE
RELAPSE

Los Angeles death metal troupe Abysmal Dawn keeps death metal flames burning on the quartet’s third offering LEVELLING THE PLANE OF EXISTENCE. This 10-track release strikes a balance between bludgeoning, gurgling brutality and shred-tastic technical prowess (“Leveling the Plane of Existence”) with a plethora of dissonant guitar solos surging through the jackhammer rhythms for added texture (“Rapture Renowned”). Channeling the mid-tempo mauling of Vader (“Perpetual Dormancy”) and the blistering presence of Decapitated (“My Own Saviour”) with a strong classic death metal influence permeating through (“The Sleeper Awakens”), Abysmal Dawn have constructed a solid death metal album that maintains both complexity and brute force with a relentless sense of savagery at the heart of its foundation.
