Abysmal Dawn

Abysmal Dawn is an American blackened death metal band from Los Angeles, California that was formed in 2003. They released their first three-song demo in October 2004. It garnered the band critical praise within the underground metal press circuit, as well as earning them some high-profile gigs in 2005, playing alongside with some of metal’s most elite acts such as Exodus, 3 Inches of Blood, Krisiun, Incantation, Hate Eternal, Into Eternity, Exhumed, Aborted, Disgorge, Impaled, Crisis and Decrepit Birth, to name a few. In November 2005, the band entered Shiva Industries in Santa Ana to start work on their debut release, From Ashes. Their latest album, Programmed To Consume, was released in 2008.

The band plays aggressive modern death that combines some of the best elements of both black and thrash metal. The band seamlessly blends the catchiness and technicality of early 90’s American death, with ample doses of atmosphere, melody and the brutality of their contemporaries. Pain ridden death growls, complex drumming and soaring leads.
