about

Abyssus are a new sensation in the death metal underground, known for their Obituary-esque traits as well as their crust-laden old school death metal leanings. The band successfully reinvigorate the fire lacking in today's death metal music, by circumventing the modern elements and just going primal both in rage and sound. This release puts together their latest split material with crust grinders Slaktgrav, their infamous EP 'Summon the Dead', which was also on the split with Czech death metal grime-peddlers Morbider, as well as their split with death metal warlords Nocturnal Vomit, and finally, their debut EP 'Monarch to the Kingdom of the Dead' - all in reverse chronological order, having the latest material first. The energy is barely contained on this single disc, which reverberates with untamed enthusiasm, purest intentions and a sound that hearkens back to the irresistible, untouched-by-fate golden period of death metal.

Limited to 300 copies.
