Abysmal Dawn Debut First Song From Obsolescence + North American Headlining Tour Dates + Deicide - Septicflesh - Inquisition Dates
Wednesday, 27 August 2014 20:35

Extreme drummer Scott Fuller and Abysmal Dawn, return with a massive display of refined brutality on their fourth full-length Obsolescence. Obsolescence will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records.

Beginning today, Obsolescence is available for pre-order from Relapse Records and digitally via Bandcamp. The album will be released on CD/LP/Digital/Deluxe Digital formats. The CD and digital releases include a bonus cover of Dissection's "Night's Blood" and the digital deluxe version includes demo recordings of every song on the album. A exclusive vinyl color is also available and includes a full color album cover poster. The devastating, otherworldly artwork was created by Pär Oloffson. (The Faceless, Spawn of Possession)

Check out an exclusive stream of the song "Inanimate" right here:

"I'm very happy to present a new Abysmal Dawn track after almost three years of waiting," commented vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliott. "It's a heavy one, so get ready to bang your fucking head with the song on repeat until your neck won't move anymore!!!"

"Lyrically this one is about losing your idealism and becoming a cold, unfeeling shell of a human being, in order to survive our modern society. An inanimate object if you will; one without hope that has cut themselves off from emotion. Our experiences in this life can carve us into stone, but they can also desensitize us in the process. In short, this might be the most depressing song you ever wanted to circle pit too."

"We hope you enjoy 'Inanimate' and that you catch us on our tour with Deicide this fall. We'll also be playing a few headlining shows that we hope you'll cause chaos at as well. See you soon and cheers!"

In support of Obsolescence, Abysmal Dawn will be hitting the road with a handful of headline dates before joining up with Deicide. The headline shows start September 30th in Riverside, CA and go through October 5th in Nashville, TN. The tour with Deicide kicks off October 7th in West Springfield, VA and will run through October 28th in Dallas, TX.

The band has also announced a special listening party on September 28th at The Complex in Glendale, CA. This will be your chance to Obsolescene in its entirety before anyone else. There will also be raffles and giveaways as well as DJ sets from members of Abysmal Dawn. More info on the event is available at:

Abysmal Dawn strikes the perfect balance between extreme songwriting and exceptional skill with an infectious blend of technical yet memorable riffs, throat shredding vocals, and crushing rhythms delivered with machine gun precision. With Obsolescence, Abysmal Dawn unleash a veritable beast of a record and the perfect example of what 21st century death metal should sound like. The album was produced by Mike Bear at Artisan Road and mixed and mastered by John Haddad (Intronaut, Exhumed, Phobia) at Trench Studios.

Carcass Announce US Tour With Obituary - Macabre - Exhumed and Noisem
Wednesday, 13 August 2014 15:51

Disinterred British extreme metal icons Carcass, will return to the United States once again this October/November! Joining them on select dates are Florida death metal legends Obituary and the eclectic champions of “murder metal”, Macabre. Death grinders Exhumed and newcomers Noisem will open each night of churning insanity as well.
“We thought it would be cool to go off the beaten track a bit and play some places that usually get overlooked,” commented Carcass frontman Jeff Walker. “We figure some of the tumbleweeds needed blowing away. Pretty chuffed to have managed to get our pals Obituary to come along on these dates. As anyone who has seen them recently will testify they're tearing it up live nowadays!”
Adds Obituary:
“We've been waiting to announce this tour for weeks. Finally the cat is out of the bag. What an awesome tour for us and you fans. We are so Stoked! Our new album Inked In Blood will be released on October 28th the same day as the first show at The Rock in Tucson, AZ. Can you say album release party!”

Carcass released Surgical Steel last September and came in at #41 on the US Billboard Top 200 Chart, just narrowly avoiding the dreaded “top 40 band” moniker. Even with their impressive back catalogue, Surgical Steel has given the band their highest charting and possibly most critically acclaimed record to date.
Death metal legends Obituary make their Relapse debut with Inked In Blood, their 9th full length LP.  Almost three decades in, Inked In Blood stands out as one of the finest moments in Obituary’s already godlike discography.  Inked in Blood will be released October 28th in North America (UK/World October 27th and Germany/Benelux/Finland on October 24th) via Relapse Records. 
The riffs, groove, snarl and rage are as fierce as ever, putting most all other contemporary death metal bands to shame. Obituary are THE definitive death metal band, and Inked In Blood is an instant classic amongst their already storied catalog. Obituary are both the originators and the torchbearers of the genre! Inked In Blood is the sound of true death metal kings reclaiming their throne!!!
