Death metal for the ages.
How do you top something as suffocating and unfiltered as Antikatastaseis? Hard to imagine evolving from a work that profound, but ABYSSAL may have just taken it to the next level with the newly announced A Beacon In The Husk. Set to arrive on June 21 via Profound Lore, mastermind G.D.C.'s new offering stands as one of the most colossal pieces of music that human ears can capture.
Whatever happened in the four years since Antikatastaseis first reigned terror has truly pushed G.D.C. to new extremes. This fourth outing, which is broken down by chapters, dials up the death in death metal to suffocating levels. The abyss brought forth on previous outings is meager compared to the ambition felt throughout A Beacon In The Husk, which is quite frankly the musical representation of hell. To offer somber welcome, ABYSSAL have made Dialogue available to experience.
