YomaBarr Six hours I've been trying to buy it during the first bandcamp day 😁 ✌ Well worth the effort. Would be worth ten hours. Twelve. Twenty. How something so chaotic can be so harmonic? Favorite track: Chrysalis.

Argetsam You don't know you need this album. In fact, you might be repulsed by it. It might seem chaotic, dissonant, suffocating at first hear. And that's exactly what it is. But it's also so much more. There are a lot of not so hidden melodies that allow you to breath. This album is cathartic.
Don't listen to it when you feel good, I don't think it's the best way to enjoy it. Listen to it when you feel bad, when you need to escape.

zirtonic Judge this book by its cover, because Antikatastaseis is dizzying, oppressive, and unsettling, but offers just enough hope to keep you from trying to end it all. Dissonant riffs and tumultuous drumming are interspersed with small melodic movements just as your anxiety is reaching its peak, sucking you back in for another round of chaos and confusion. This is no doubt a challenging listen, but there is pay off and it's surprisingly reassuring. Favorite track: The Cornucopian.

Chrysalis 08:02


ABYSSAL have always been a really low-profile entity within the death metal scene for the most part. Even though their new album “Antikatastaseis” is their third album, the band have recorded their previous two releases mainly for self-release digitally (where they would make their albums available mainly for free) and via CDR for anyone who requested a physical copy of their work. The band never had partaken in any live activities, interviews or any kind of promotion likewise for their work either. When the band made their last album “Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius” available digitally and would burn CDRs for any listener who requested, Profound Lore just happen to come across this mesmerizing death metal release by chance and decided to release it officially in a limited run (now pretty much sold out). It was then that ABYSSAL’s awareness was being made as a band who created some of the most intriguing death metal coming out today combining vicious brutality, technicality, and a very dark foreboding atmosphere which would compare them to the likes of such bands as PORTAL, IMPETUOUS RITUAL, and MITOCHONDRION.

With their new album “Antikatastaseis”, ABYSSAL are primed to release what will be considered one of the most intriguing and most brutal and darkest death metal releases of the year, one that will realize them as one of the best death metal bands coming out of the UK today alongside GRAVE MIASMA and CRUCIAMENTUM. By taking their musical fortitude to heights much darker, more brutal, and even more melodic and technical, ABYSSAL have raised a bar in the genre of death metal with their new album.
