George A Greek Obituary. Never thought I'd hear those Tampa boys' sound mimicked in a such a way, particularly the vocals. But Abyssus are not simply clones. They bring much more to the table. They're powerful death-thrash all around.

Brooks Jones While it's not groundbreaking in any sense, it holds it's own personality throughout and when they do delve into some Obituary worship, they manage to add there own flair and create something completely original Favorite track: Left to Suffer.

flightoficarus (Metal Trenches) The old school still lives on in some of the darkest corners of the world. Even in Greece, there seem to be those more interested in the old 80's flair than tightened production and symphonic additions. With Abyssus, you get what you paid for: vile vocals, crusty riffs, and a few D-beats to boot. Another Metal Trenches seal of approval. Favorite track: Morbid Inheritance.

Head-Banger Reviews ...with “Once Entombed…” it’s very obvious to see that not only are Abyssus straight A students at said school, they also have a master’s degree in badassery.

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.
